Canning on Photo Friday

Happy Friday! Unfortunately, I don't have a card to show you today. Sabrina came home from school early yesterday, and today she is home with a sinus infection. So, no stamping time for me! I thought I would share my photo of the day. I know she doesn't look sick in the photo, but all morning she's been coughing and hacking away -- the rest of the time she's riding her car around or singing in front of the mirror. On the days when she doesn't have a fever or appear to be too sick, I'm always on the fence about letting her go to school, but today I decided to keep her home as she is still pretty congested. Hopefully the antibiotics kick in soon. I see a nap for her this afternoon, though that might be wishful thinking on my part...

Lately I've been in a canning/preserving mood. I recently got some new stamps that would be perfect to add onto a little Mason jar as a gift tag. Last week I made dill pickles for the first time. I still have 7 more weeks until I can try them, so I'll have to wait and see how they turned out... at least they look good enough to eat... :) This morning I made grape jelly -- at least I won't have to wait as long to try it. Wish me luck that it sets up the first time. I hear lids popping {meaning the jars are sealed}, so that's a good sign.

Tomorrow I'm helping Stacy with her first Breast Cancer Scrapbook Event. There will be make and takes, handcrafted items for sale and snacks ~ all to help raise $$ for a great cause. If you live in the Phoenix area, please stop by and say hello! The fun takes place on Saturday, August 29th between 12-4 at Celebrations Church {8726 W. Olive Ave., Peoria, AZ}.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!
