Party in a Jar

I received a book to review but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Hey guys! Today's post is all about my friend Vanessa's new book, Party in a Jar.

I met Vanessa at SNAP two years ago, and we've been blog-friends ever since. She's always coming up with such great ideas, and I'm even lucky enough to be on her contributor team this year!

Here's one that I made--Red White and Blue popcorn in a jar! Perfect for a summer BBQ or for watching the fireworks after dark. I stirred popcorn in some melted candy coating and tossed some with red sprinkles and some with blue. You'll have to see the book for the cool way that she colored hers!

My kids have already each picked out the jars they want to make next. 

You can order the book on Amazon Party in a Jar for just $8.99. It would make a great Mother's Day gift too for anyone who loves to entertain crowds, or just her own kids!

AND, Vanessa is sending out autographed bookplates to anyone who buys her book so you can stick it inside the cover. You just need to contact her with proof of purchase (screen shot of your Amazon order, photo of receipt, etc) and give her the address where to send it. You can reach her at seevanessacraft {at} gmail.com
