"Christmas Cheer" in an Old Milk Bottle-#30 in a Craft a Day While Colt's Away!

Well, it's been one month since our Son, Colt, left for Iraq..I have made a Craft a Day, honestly, it's more like 3 one day, 1 the next, 5 the next so on...But I will have completed 365 by the time he is home.  What the Heck am I going to do with them, but I do have 30 so far!  I feel a giveaway or two in the very near future!!

I have this Wonderful Old Milk Jug sitting in my Pantry. Can you believe that people used to get milk this Way?!! I put Red Beads, Glittery Ribbon and lights in it and made me a bottle full of
"Christmas Cheer!"

Party like a Rock Star here.....and here...etc...

The Boardwalk Bragfest


  1. Prayers for your son. That milk jug is beautiful!

  2. Your milk jug is wonderful! I have one like that on my cabinet and now I know what I am going to do with it!

    We are still praying. You know, if you would like, you could post his address so that we could send cards.

  3. If someone were to ask me what Christmas looks like, i would refer them to your glass jug...sparkly, colorful, full of life and warmth and love. Beautiful!

  4. Thank you for raising a son who we can all thank for our very "freedom"...and I think your crafting is wonderful...I love this sparkly shiny Christmasy decoration!!! Keep up the crafting!!!

  5. That's too pretty! A month of beauty - thank you, Denise! And thank you, Colt.

  6. This is such a cute idea! I have some empty glass jars standing around here just waiting to be crafted up into something cute, and i also thought about putting in a little light with some other decorations on top for the light to shine through - basically like what you've done! Hopefully mine turns out pretty too. :D
