I love MASON & so does Scrappin Becky B

Mason Jars that is!  They are everywhere… and the prices are crazy different.  I have seen them for $1 all the way up to $40.. depends on size, style, and year of course.

I see them being used to hold pool side drinks, sewing notions, candy, jam, etc… I have seen them displayed with sand/shells, marbles, wish lists, money, etc… Now you can find them all over pinterest.  Crafters are really decorating them for the holidays, home decor, gifts, and for their own craft supplies.  I just love them.  I have tons of them through out my house.  I also decorate them and sell them at a store.   You can even find Mason jar stamps, dies, and tags.. I love Mason~

Here is one idea that I have seen on-line.. just haven’t had the time.  But when I seen my friend Becky from Scrappin Becky B do it, I just had to share her post.. she does such a great job sharing and showing you the step by step process.  Remember Scrappin Becky B?  She was on my design team for a while and is back as a GUEST DESIGNER.

Becky’s post is titled:

Old Jar Makeover…How to Take a Not-So-Pretty Jar From Blah to Beautiful!

Isn’t it BEAUTIFUL?  I just love it..
Here are just a couple of the pictures from her post.. please go to her actual page to get the full post with the step by step directions.. I am just giving you a teaser.

Thank you Becky Brown for allowing me to show off your project.. I miss having you around.. I can’t wait to see your pink version of this project..

Inside are a few fun photos of us, as well as little pockets that hold tags with friendship quotes…some of them serious, and some of them just down-right funny! (There is a step-by-step tutorial on Becky’s Blog  so that you can make one of these cuties too!) Here’s the first photo, which is a view of the lid:
