A Jar of Fun!

I spent my morning putting together these fun little art kits.

I found these great glass wire handled jars a while back and have been contemplating what I wanted to do with them.

I started sticking things in them for storage and realized what great little kits they would make. I lined them with vintage lace and filled them with paper, buttons, flowers and all sorts of goodies.

I also made some new pixies. These are so much fun. I use these whenever I send a card or on top of packages.

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a lovely week!

You have a lovely week too Carrie. I didn't know those little doodads were called pixies, very cute. Love the idea of an art kit in a jar, you are so creative.
