LESSology Challenge #20 Barely There

Hi There, My project this month for LESSology Challenge #20 "Barely There" started with a glass jar.  I am starting to plan my Christmas gifts and I created this to hold some of my homemade peanut brittle.
Here is the jar. 

This is the lid.

This is how it ended up after a little bit of glass etching, some felt, ribbon and doodads.
Can you see the candy cane? There is a candy cane, a tree and a ginger bread boy etched in the class.

Here is the video telling how I made my gift jar.

Mail Art

The theme for the Mail Art Swap at Your Paper Pantry this month is Art of the State. The goal was to tell something about your state. Well since it is fall and football season I just had to pull out my favorite Peachy Keen stamps and some old state maps to make my envelopes.
Oh and a little duct tape for good measure. I added some post cards and one post card that I made.
Here is the video.

You have two more days to sign up for the swaps at YPP. It is a lot of fun. I hope to see you there.

Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful weekend,
