20 in 20 giveaway (day 5)...

handmade
20 handmade projects in 20 days...day 5. Some days I wander the aisles of our local craft store, waiting (and hoping) for inspiration to jump out. I had never seen smooth Ball mason jars before, so I snatched them up, dragged them home, and started drawing. They'd be perfect to store office supplies, moonshine, bathroom essentials, whatever...I mean, who doesn't like jars? Just a warning though: I haven't tested this paint for dishwasher safety (it may come off) and the paint is not food safe (the drawings are on the outside of the jars though). They are not the easiest thing in the world to photograph, particularly when two little people are nipping at your heals...hence the 900 photos I took and the white paper on the inside of the jars. Thanks to PatriciaMonkey for sponsoring today's project. Happy 20 in 20!

I've been needing a place for my moonshine! Love the drawing that falls a part on the other side into dashes! have you tried Porcelaine [Pebeo 150] pens before? They cook on in the oven in very little time, and melt like enamel for permanence.
