We've had a blast celebrating the release of my friend Vanessa's new book......
I have two words:
I adooooore me some jars!!!
It's all in the packaging, baby,
and this book is full of fun projects
IN the jars and
special packaging on the OUTSIDE of jars!

Soooooo, after making a great project myself at Vanessa's,
I brought home a copy of this fun book and
let my 11 yo daughter (who looooooves to craft)
choose which project she'd like to make first.
She had a hard time deciding because she liked so many,
but she decided to start with Monster Slime Jars
so she'd have birthday gifts for some of her nieces and nephews.
How much will they love this Monster Slime in an awesomely scary jar???
The recipes are in the book too!
Plus, very soon Maddie will be making a Father's Day gift from Party In A Jar!
Can you guess which one? It's on this post somewhere. ;)
So now you want one, right?!
Order yours here:
Want your copy signed???
Vanessa will be sending out signed (super cute mason jar) bookplates to stick inside the books by request. To request a bookplate, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line BOOKPLATE. She'll need proof of purchase (Amazon order screen shot, photo of receipt, etc.) and a shipping address. That's it!
