the etsy shop is stocked …


I asked …


… and you answered.

All 70 of you …


* Wow *


Seventy comments in the comments thread!  Really?


I’m shocked.  I’m in awe.  And, most importantly, I’m truly ~ and deeply ~ grateful!  I wish I could hug each and every one of you.  So here’s my virtual hug …


And you were honest.  Brutally so, just like I asked you to be …


And while I recognize ~ and it was confirmed ~ that so many of you that stop by here are crafty types, you recognize that not everyone else is …


So why not?  You asked me.


You threw my question back at me and asked why not just go for it and give it a try?  Go ahead and stock some of those painted and distressed mason jars in the Etsy shop.


So I did.  You can see them right here …


And I’ve also expanded my repertoire to include a metallic line.  Spray painted in silver …



and gold …



So I hope you’ll help me spread the word.  I do custom orders too ….


and just in time for wedding season.


If you love mason jars as much as I, I’ve got great news for you:  I’m giving away one case from the very first certified 100 cases of the Heritage Collection produced to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Ball brand Perfect Mason Jar!  Click here to enter …

  8. I missed the post about selling, but I had to chime in and say wow, your photography has gotten really great! I have loved hanging around your blog this past year and seeing you grow. If I wasn’t a crafty woman myself, I’d definitely be thinking about buying your mason jars. Great color choices, great variety, and yup, rustic elements in weddings are still hot, so a great market strategy. Good luck!
