I really like this project and I have thought about making one but never got around to it. I even bought some cool little jars at the thrift store but just have not been inspired to give it a go.
Recently, a friend of mine has been kinda down. Life has just sort of kicked her around a bit. She works here so you know that she is quirky like the rest of us. The poor dear cried when she heard that Tim Russert had died. (SEE! I am not the ONLY weird one!). Now when we want to see her cry, we just mention good ole Tim Russert and she just puddles.
So what did I make her so that she would feel better?
A TIM RUSSERT IN A JAR!!!
I had to explain to Tim that he was actually going into the jar....to live. He fought me for a bit until I told him that I would give him sparkly butterfly wings. That kind of called him down.
I added a bit of bling to the top of the jar. Tim thought that it was not very manly but I assured him that it was more for HER benefit and not for his. I also assured Tim that I was not gluing the jar lid down and that anytime he felt the need to get out for a bit, he could just tap on the side of the glass and we would give him a breather.One of the things that my friend and I have talked about is value. What is your value? We have to remind ourselves at time that our value is a lot. When she feels like hers is low I remind her. She does the same for me.
I wanted her to know that Tim thinks that her value is always A LOT.
