How adorable are these Woodland Creature Painted Mason Jars? I’m not going to lie… I’m super sad that they’re going to someone’s home and not staying with me. These jars are for a dear friend whose daughter has a forest themed room and I’m pretty sure she is going to LOVE them! At least for a few minutes.
I’m at the age now that, even though I’m single and doing me, a lot of my friends are having (or already have) kids. Not that I fault them, it really is an amazing thing to be a mother, but I’m just not at that place in my life yet. It kind of sucks though because part of me feels stuck while everyone is moving on with their lives. Any one else feel this way? I’ve just decided I’m going to be the cool aunt that makes them fun outfits and bakes with them, making me favorite aunt (even though I’m not related).
