This week Quirky Boots is hosting a Jam Jar Collective which I am gladly taking part in as I seriously need ideas of what to do with my growing collection of Jars in my cupboard.
I took my inspiration from a post a did a few weeks ago titled Jars Jars Jars- see post here – and went with a photo themed one. See below for a peek>
I loved the excuse to get my big box of craft bits out and see what I could do. I wanted to keep it simple but decorative.
I chose the photo of a very special lady named Betty who sadly passed away 9 years ago but still and will always have a special place in my heart. She lived a few doors down from my Nan in Kettering and I would always look forward to the days my Nan would look after me as it meant I got to go and visit Betty and her dog Trixie too. I have so many fond memories that I want to cherish and never forget, like on a friday afternoon Betty would let me make the Parsley Source to go with her fish dinner that night, a simple memory but full of feelings.
I plan to write them down and pop them in the Jar along with her photo. It took me nearly 8 years to find a photo of Betty as nobody had one, so I want to keep this extra safe.
I simply popped the photo inside. Used some of my favourite patterened paper, paper flowers and buttons. then using some ribbon I tied a heart charm around the top. Voila!
