Bling in the New Year Hop!!!!

Hello out there!!! Everyone getting settled back into 'normal' life, or not-so-normal?!! You should've come here from Suzanne who also is our Hop Sponsor!! Did you see her uber fabulous Grand Prize?!!


HOLY COW LOOK AT THAT YUMMINESS!!

All you have to do is hop along, like the blog and leave comment! Woo Hoo Easy Peasy!!

This blog is to Bling in the New Year and I saw on Pinterest (i know i know, crazily addicting!) and wanted to incorporate this. You take a jar, bling and some glitter:


Spread craft glue all over the jar. Found out the hard way to not put it on too thick or your rhinestone will glob and run down the side!!


Add rhinestones and some glitter:


You can decorate the lid (i put mine off to the side for now). 
Now write your note for the New Year! JaKobe claims his note pictured below says he loves me!
I wrote on the other side of the 2"x 2" paper and said I had fun making this jar with him and dated it.


We will add notes throughout the year, wishes, good things that happen, funny things he says, anything we may want to remember and then open the jar next new years and read them!! This is a super fun project for your toddler and something you can cherish forever! I plan to take all of the notes out next year and make a Year in Review scrapbook page with all of the notes!!

Now your next stop is the uber creative ROBIN!!!

And don't forget to like pages and leave comments to win Suzanne's fantastic prize!! In case you get lost along the way, here's the line up;

What a fun thing to do with your little guy. I think this jar is a wonderful ideal and I just might have to scrap lift this ideal. My kids are much older but so many times my grandkids say things that just crack both my hubby and I up and if I don't write them down I forget so fast. Have a wonderful New Year and thanks for sharing your family time.
