For the past few years we've invited other transplants over to share a non-traditional Thanksgiving with us. Each of us makes and brings the food we miss most from eating with family. (We usually have multiple varieties of bread and potatoes. It's GREAT!)
I decided to pair my Sharpie and my Drinking Jar* collections to make glasses that each person could personalize.It was tons of fun to do, and see. Almost all the colors came off easily in the wash- the blue was the most permanent. (Now you know!)
*Drinking Jars are common in my family. I resisted at first, but my love for salsa was providing me with too many opportunities! I have plans for their futures, but I thought I would share my jar harvesting tips. After many hits and misses I found out if I fill the jar with hot water, it will soften the glue and the label falls right off! (Basically.) Yay!

Hawaii gave me a cold. I will forgive it, because it was so great to me otherwise.
Back home, we made a Target run and found this amazing collection of first-aid packets. Each is titled after your problem
"Help I can't sleep"
"Help, I have a headache"
and the like.
BUT my favorite part is that each packet has a quirky little quip on the back. If you see them at the store take a minute to read them... the headache one was my favorite (for obvious reasons.)
Help I have a headache does not contain Red Dye #40. If you enjoy dye, you will have to eat it separately.

Sorry I've been MIA! After visiting the family for the holidays we went to Hawaii, THEN we got back to a snowstorm and ice storm that took down a few of our trees, and our power for 4 days. I'm still trying to catch up on projects- but I have tons of stuff to share!
I promise to give you something sometime. Meanwhile, watch this magic.
