Tuesday Taggers.

Tuesday Taggers time again. This weeks theme is to fill a bottle or jar and decorate it as a gift. Now, if I'm honest, I have cheated this week, I have made a Journalling Jar and notebook for my Mom. The jar is filled with slips of paper with questions on for her to answer and write down in the note book. There are questions like 'describe your wedding dress', 'whats the best thing that has happened to you', 'how/where did you meet Dad' etc., etc. The idea is that as some point I will get the notebook back and be able to scrapbook photos and memories of my Mom and know some of the things that we very often don't ever get round to talking about with our loved ones. The cheat is that I actually made this the year before last for Mothers Day for her and the reason I haven't done anything new is because my fingers are so flamin' sore from cutting trees down and laying slabs at the weekend that I'm not managing to do any crafting at the moment - didn't think that through very well did I!

If I remember rightly the paper is from 'Deja View', ribbon and flowers from stash and the lovely little jar was from Ikea.

    What a fabulous idea, wish I had been into crafting before Mum passed, I would have loved to have something like this. Love your card too, it is a great image isn't it. I know what you mean about laying slabs, done a fair bit in my time and it knocks your hands up something wrotten. Hope you're less tender soon.
