December Stamp of the Month
had me at the get-go.
How ’bout you?
JAR-JAR Now Vase
Something kinda FUNN was cutting the lid off the jar –
oh, yeah, you knew something was weird.
The “back” lip of the once-jar-jar*-now fancy vase was drawn with my journaling pen.
You can’t see it too well, but I brushed the container with
Liquid Glass, just a little touch to make it more FUNN.
And yes, you who are detail-oriented, I cut around the vase ties.
Couple of tricks for poppin’ those posies are
outline in ShinHan Gray Markers and foam tape for the large mum flower.
Added a little strip of Red Shimmer Trim to anchor the image by adding visual weight, too.
So I am thinking a lot of about cookies right now.
Hey, the jar could so be a gift tag for home made foodie gifts!
LIKE adding this cute tag with a supply of Martha Stewart’s 3-ingredient Hot Chocolate Mix
(after all December 13th is National Celebrate Cocoa Day)!

SOURCE: Martha Stewart
- 3 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 1/4 cups cocoa
- 1 tablespoon table salt
- Whole milk for serving
In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and salt, and whisk to combine well. Store the mixture in an airtight container.
For individual servings, pour 1 cup whole milk into a microwave-safe mug, and microwave on high just until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa mix, and stir to dissolve. For a larger batch of cocoa, warm the milk in a saucepan set over medium-low heat, taking care not to let the milk boil; as it warms, stir in 2 tablespoons of mix for each cup of milk.
me – I haven’t dabbled with substituting Stevia for the sugar, but if you do and come up with the right measurement – holler, ok?
Have a MUNNday and SUNNday FUNNday!
p.s. I have a lot of FUNN up my sleeve in give-aways, 2016 announcements, and pictures of my cat – it is the internet.
*JarJar – no one likes him, but The Force is Awakening this week, so hat tip to the Star War fanns.
