Can you say FWF?

So still no baby!

Today is Friday, and Friends with Flair over on the Unity Blog. Make sure to check out all the participants and keep you eyes peeled for the FWF Blinkie. If you find the blinkie and leave a comment on that blog, you are in it for a chance to win 25 random FREE stamps! YAY.

I found the blinkie and won the stamps last month! I got this nice baggie of red rubber and LOVE some of the stamps that I got that I wouldn't have had otherwise (from KOM's I wasn't able to purchase!)

Anyway, this weeks Unity Addicts Challenge was to make a NON-Card! How lucky am I? I have been working on these fabulous Christmas jars/bottles for my Christmas presents this year and I JUST finished them! Perfect timing.

The first is a frappachino bottle that I have had lying around for about a year. I finally decorated them and put colored Epsom salts in them for my Young Women at church:
(Ippity Season of Joy)

The rest are Pickle Jars! (Unity Embellished Season, October KOM, Ippity Kissmas and Mistletoe)

I have to take lunch out to the farm every day, and my husband loves pickles on his sandwiches.
We were going through a jar of pickles about ever 2-3 days there for a while, so I started to keep them for some sort of altered gift.
(Unity Embellished Season, Ippity Season of Joy)

Very quick and easy!
(October KOM, Ippity Kissmas and Mistletoe)

Part are filled with Epsom salts and the other are filled with Russian/Spice Tea. There are a few people in the family who LOVE spice tea, so I try to make it for them every year so they have some during the cold weather months.

What do ya think!? Gotta love inexpensive presents for all those hard to buy for family members!
