5 minute update for basic glass jars.
I have an easy, 5 minute project for you today. It’s for some glass jars that I picked up at a thrift store. They’re very basic, and I bet you can pick them up at any yard sale or thrift shop in the area… but I decided they were a little boring. I like the […]
Make a Sandy Beach Frame for your summer memories. (Kid friendly!)
