My goal for this year was to can 100 pints of salsa. Yep, just 100 pints. :) I final count for 2012 was 108 pints. I don't think I have ever made that much in one year, but I am sure glad to have it done. I love being able to make cute gifts for clubs and workshops.
For this workshop, I gave my hostess a jar.
Then I decided that it would be a good door prize too.
The jars were made by cutting a piece of Stampin Up! designer fabric w/ the scallop circle die and screwing the canning ring down to hold it in place. Then I stamped and cut out a little mason jar using the Perfectly Perserved stamp set and Cannery framelits from the Holiday Mini Catalog (page 29). I attached the jar w/ baker's twine and looped it through my bow to secure it to the jar.
Evan has decided he LOVES showers although removing his clothes seems to be optional sometimes. I spent a lot of time fetching him out of the shower while trying to can salsa. It is really hard to be upset with him. He is so sweet---and really really clean! :)
