KISS JAR---altered pantry jar

hello all,
we got some light snow in since yesterday. my backyard looks like like a winter wonderland. i love when is fresh snow on the tree branches.

i  had time to made this jar i had in my pantry waiting for a nice occasion. i bet you already notice i like to alter items and i also like to repurpose.

Kiss Jar

---sorry about these pictures. my computer is sick. (i dropped an iris case on the keyboard and i think it damaged the hard drive. i am using my husband's but it does not have the same photo editing program i have in mine. when i get tim,e i will see if i can download it for free--i like that program better than this one).
---the frog is from create a critter, page #24---image #1 on the overlay.---

 the red paper, hearts and one of the borders are from k&co. the scalloped brown border is from crate paper.
this super cute necklace was made with a beautiful ribbon a blogger sister gave me a while ago. the chrome flower is a piece of jewelry. her nails, heart, eyes and lips were accented with glossy accents.
and i draw some eyelashes for
different strands of ribbon for the jar neck with a heart charm attached to them.
i finished my jar with hershey kisses---my favorite chocolate--and i have tried many, hehe.


my husband's b-day was on thursday. i made a special dinner for him. i went to the fish market i got some whole red snapper to bake. i also made mashed potatoes mixed with sauteed onions and a side of grilled asparagus---YUMMY!---what a delicious meal. i also got some clams. we ate those on friday. this jar was for him too---along with his birthday gifts and, of course, we are sharing the candy---wink!

take care for now and have a great weekend!
---still loving you all---


  1. Cute jar! I also save jars to repurpose! But, sometimes I think I am more of "an empty jar collector". I am accumulating quite alot of them!

  2. Cute Kiss Jar. The little frog with the painted nails is adorable.

  3. this is adorable

  4. Your Altered Art always looks amazing...very creative too. Love the glossy accents.
    I'm not a seafood person, but as for the asparagus...hmmmmmmm! my favorite. We put in skillet, roll it in Olive oil and sprinkle Lemon Pepper on it for just a few good.

    We got a dusting of snow too. The kittens had a blast watching it come down through the night.

    Take care and loving you back!
