I love to get crafty but I don't often find the time to do so. I read design blogs and find myself saying: I'll make that! and then never do. However, recently I actually did get inspired and follow it through and thought I'd share the fruits of my labor with you here even though they have absolutly nothing to do with books.
A few months ago I was clicking through trusty design*sponge when they talked about how you could easily turn old glass jars into Moroccan candle holders. I have a special place in my heart for the "Moroccan theme". I don't know why, I've never been there but the colors and the lushness of the whole look always speaks to me. So when I saw how simple this craft was I thought I could totally make this. You know, sometimes these crafts involve lots of steps and well, I just don't think it's gonna look good when I touch it so why try. This one though, I could handle. So I started saving my jars when I made pasta or ate some canned peaches and soon I had three and I went shopping for supplies.
