A few months back, my friend Jennifer Frost took the "leap" (see what I did there?) and created a fantastic group on Facebook for people wanting to learn more about blogging.  While I have been blogging for many years now, I have leant a few things I didn't know!  If you want to know more about this group, then visit Jenn's blog HERE.  

Once you have a blog, then why not join in a blog hop!  And that's just what 10 of us are doing today.  Our theme is "Gift Jars", any kind!  You may have just come from Tracy Bish, or you may be starting with me.  Just make sure you select the "next" button at the end of the post to continue on the hop!

I love this little jar.  It reminds me of the local Dairy when I was a kid, that used to have rows of these jars stocked full of eye catching lollies!  It doesn't sit flat, but rather, on an angle, making it easier to get your mitts in there!  I filled mine with peppermints, my Sweethearts favourites!  To decorate it up as a gift, I simply add ribbon and a small piece of DSP.

No gift jar would be complete without a coordinating card to go with it.  I have used the same ribbons and DSP on my card that I used on the jar. I am really loving this monotone look at the moment.

For more gift jar ideas, please click on the "next" button below and continue on the hop with your next stop, Eva Pottsova.
