How to use your mason jars
I was reading a blog today and ran across a great article about 31 ways to use a mason jar. Here is the link Keeper of the Home. It got me thinking about whether or not I use my jars for anything special. I just recently had a birthday and got a neat gift from my mom. I had recently seen on Pinterest about how you could drill a hole in a lid and turn your mason jar into a drinking cup. I thought it was a neat idea and was hoping I could get my husband or son to do this project for me. About a week or so later I saw somewhere online where you could buy a set of these lids already made for you. I sent the link to my mom and she surprised me with them for my birthday. The set included paper straws and 5 lids. I like the idea, but have already realized the straws will be used up quickly and I'll have to figure out something else to do. Pretty much I use my jars for leftovers and sometimes pen storage and that's about it. There are some great ideas here that I'm going to have to start trying.
