Jelly making and altered notebooks

Hello everyone,

We are on last full week of summer break. Then the boys will be back to school. I am excited and nervous all at the same time. But, right now I just want to enjoy the last moments of the summer.

One of things, I have been up to is Jelly making. This all started when we came back from vacation with a a big bag of chokecherries from the family farm.

Which then lead to making home made pesto from the basil from our garden.

Which then lead back to more jelly making…. 4 berry which was the recipe that Ball gave everyone for National Can it Forward day, Raspberry Grape, Raspberry Strawberry, and Cherry. I love to give them fun names but I heard some people don’t like them? What do you all think? ex- Uptown Cherry Jelly

Yesterday, the boys and I spent time getting together school supplies. We decided to “cool up” their notebooks. So we got out the Gelli  pad and went to town.
