crafting with mason jars by hester van overbeek

Ready to tinker along in the Girlie Office

Allow me to present the newest addition to my bookshelf:
Love this pic of the tea light holder project!
Crafting with Mason Jars is Hester van Overbeek's second book. With stunning photography by James Gardiner, it's another in CICO Books' lovely canon of how-tos featuring "over 35" projects.

When my review copy arrived complete with a canning jar, I couldn't wait to try some of Hester's clever ideas! If you're familiar with my own books, you know that I am right there with Hester in my adoration of tinkering with glass containers. 

Crafting with Mason Jars offers many fresh and inventive ideas, like these concrete place card holders which would also make nice balloon anchors.

I really like this hanging light complete with easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions.

There's also sweet packaging projects like birthday in a jar ...

and picnic in a jar!

Thank you for visiting and congrats, Hester!
