Festive Baby Jars

As most of you know I hosted a cookie swap this week.  We had a LOT of fun and.....I did not get ONE picture of the swap or decorations set up.

Not one!

I am so sorry.  I have failed you.

I did make sure to take some pics though as I was making my cute festive baby jars.


Here is what you need:

Baby Food Jars -washed and dried
Adhesive Squares

I wanted to cover the print on the jars

Take your ribbon and measure it around your jar leaving just a bit extra.  You will then take your adhesive squares and place on each end of the ribbon.

Remove the paper backing and wrap around jar, pulling tight, then press to secure.

I wasn't happy with just the blue so I added a "Merry Christmas" ribbon as well.

And....that's it!  I love that this is SO simply but adds just the right touch to my decorations.  I also did the same technique to the top of some bigger jars and placed mints and ribbon candy in those.

**My notes: It is much easier to work with the jars if they are EMPTY!  HA!  I didn't think about the ribbon until after I filled the jars, we made it work though.  Also, for an added splash of color I spray painted the lids red.  I decided not to put the lids on though because they still smelled like spray paint.  EW!

These would be cute at baby showers and wedding showers as well.  Oooohh and birthday parties!  The possibilities are pretty much endless.

Also, I am sorry about the picture quality.  I only had my phone as I was doing this and unless the lighting is perfect, the pics aren't that great.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Getting ready for summer with #MyHartstrings #cbias

Is it warming up where you are?  It has been warming up here for a few weeks now.  With spring break over and the temps slowly getting warmer and warmer, it can only mean one thing.... SUMMER is just around the corner! We like to spend our summers at the lake or at the pool.  Last year we practically lived in our bathing suits!  Since we spent SO much time in our suits last year, they were looking a little warn by the end of summer.  Plus both girls have grown so much this year, they needed new suits. I have been peeking at some suits on and decided to go ahead and get new suits!  We may be going to Houston soon so the girls will need something for that trip.  It was REALLY hard to decide on what suit to get the girls, they have such cute options.  Mads is old enough to pick for herself (somewhat) and MG really doesn't care as long as it includes pink. I pulled up and let the girls have at it.  I did guide MG into the green and p
