 You know how it's entirely possible to start a collection without realising it? I find myself doing that all the time, and I usually don't realise it till I find similar items around my apartment and start putting two and two together.

Well, I guess you can say I've started a mason jar collection. It started with used pasta/sauce jars I cleaned up and use to store coins and I've recently started noticing a lot of cute jars in stores and before you know it, a collection!

The good thing is, there's a lot of potential for these jars and I intend to fully explore it, as shown by my little project inspiration mood board.

I'm especially eyeing number 2 (using a glue gun to write a message before painting over it), number 6 (how cute are those jar toppers?) and 7 (probably the wrong season for snowglobes).

I can't wait to get cracking, especially since I picked up some Martha Stewart craft supplies last week.

Have you done a mason jar project? What's your favorite?
