Good Morning..Happy Monday. Yup, that’s right..I said it Happy Monday. I am determined to have a good day, I am determined that I am going to stay at home today and hopefully most of the week. I tend to do A LOT of running around and I’m tired of going everywhere, so I’m taking a week off and will leave the house only minimally. There I have said, now we will see if it will actually happen.

So, I was thinking of a gift to give to the wonderful lady who gave me a ton of tomato’s to dice up and can (which I have discovered is one of the grossest things every but I’m sure it will be worth it). She is such a kind and wonderful woman, I wanted to do a little something special for her. So, what I did was crochet up a dish cloth, used it to wrap a small jar of the strawberry jam I made, tied it up with some matching spare yarn, and added one of my Mom’s gift tags to it for the special touch. This also got me thinking about what a great hostess gift this would make. Unfortunately, I’m not sure whether or not I could sell this as a set as I am not food certified or whatnot so there would be a fear I’m sure of purchasing the jam from me. What a bummer, maybe in the future or maybe I can figure some other way to list is as a possibility.

What if you sold this has a gift set for those who make their own jam and are looking for a festive way to present it as a gift. They could purchase this from you slip in their own jar of special sauce and have a handmade gift with their own personal touch.
