The Internet was down for two hours and I thought I wasn't going to be able to write today, but luckily the Internet started working a few minutes ago.
Today I am going to share the project I had been working on, which I mentioned a few posts ago.

• Ribbon (to tie the wishes and to decorate with: $1)
It's really simple and fun to do with just about
anyone. Also, there are many different types of
jars out there that people have made that inspired
me to do this project. Here are a few...
