Jelly making and altered notebooks

Hello everyone,

We are on last full week of summer break. Then the boys will be back to school. I am excited and nervous all at the same time. But, right now I just want to enjoy the last moments of the summer.

One of things, I have been up to is Jelly making. This all started when we came back from vacation with a a big bag of chokecherries from the family farm.




Which then lead to making home made pesto from the basil from our garden.


Which then lead back to more jelly making…. 4 berry which was the recipe that Ball gave everyone for National Can it Forward day, Raspberry Grape, Raspberry Strawberry, and Cherry. I love to give them fun names but I heard some people don’t like them? What do you all think? ex- Uptown Cherry Jelly


Yesterday, the boys and I spent time getting together school supplies. We decided to “cool up” their notebooks. So we got out the Gelli  pad and went to town.

We has such fun making these! Hope everyone enjoys the rest of this week! Thanks so much for stopping in 🙂
