up on my soap box...

so i kinda want to brag for a minute.

this year, i was SO on top of things. i made my neighbor Christmas presents in AUGUST!!! so today, all i had to do was tie on a bow, and make a little note. YAY for me!

i guess you can use the idea next summer.....but for this year, your a little late for jam makin'!! haha! and in case you think i'm being mean, don't worry. i have been there. EVERY year, the week before Christmas i am raking my brain for a neighbor gift. this year, i just feel so glad that i'm DONE!!
p.s. notice the mint milanos. yep, can't craft with out em'!

I made a ton of jam this summer for the very same reason...it is a fun and yummy gift! Yours look adorable. I even forze a bunch of berries for winter canning too..I got so tired of canning this summer that I thought I'd make up some more in January when not much is going on here.

You know, this is a really good idea. I'm going to keep this time of year in mind much earlier next year so everything is ready!!

I have never made jam.....my Mom always has. I guess I should though! Great gift idea! I love your blog! Cherry

I read this post a few days ago, and my jam still hasn't been delivered. You might want to mail me another one, just in case. Thanks.
