My hubby is in the military and he has a lot of great coworkers. But most of them have what I call a "potty mouth" and that type of language is highly DISCOURAGED in our house. ESPECIALLY with a 15 month old who is picking up on EVERYTHING.
A couple weeks ago my hubby had some buddies over for poker, an event I'm used to spending with my family members. I was shocked at the foulness of "everyday" conversation and decided I had to do something, it is my house after all!
Tomorrow we have our 2nd poker-get-together and I've been busy with other projects and haven't been able to work on the FULL project for our "curse free zone" but I completed the first part, a part that the hubby actually suggested, and I love how it turned out - hopefully it sends a message tomorrow so that I don't have to *wink*
I didn't want to make it too "girly" but black and white was a little boring - so I outlined the labels with colored pencil. Then I put a layer of mod podge on the back and stuck the labels where I wanted them on my jar and after everything was in place, did a coat of mod podge to seal everything together. I love how it turned out!
I wonder if I'll be making any more of these... I love the idea of suds and a washtub for in the laundry room - there always seems to be loose change in the washer and dryer after I wash the hubby's uniform. I should totally do a rainy day jar =)
What jar do you need in your home?! I'd love to hear your ideas! Happy Crafting!
