Flash forward to the age of DIY and of course, there are a ton of tutorials for how to make them and someone mentioned that glycerin is available at the the drug store. AH HA! At the same time, my aging cat Rocket has developed a serious baby food addiction. For a while she tricked me into thinking that she could only digest the $1.09 Gerber yucky chicken pasty stuff that makes me heave. And was eating 3-4 jars a day. Do the math! I don't spend that much on my own food everyday! But, the pile of adorable little glass jars were so perfect for my beads and baubles as mentioned here previously. Then, I remembered Martha's snow globes. Yep, just in time for the holidays. First step, find little trinkety items that wouldn't rust, melt, mold or get icky in water and could fit in the tiny jars. I found trees at at Michaels and adorable miniature sleighs ($3 each - ouch!). The tress were flocked if I do say so. Remember that. And it rhymes with, well, if you ever crafted or shopped or dined or talked to me, you know what I'd say next. After about $60 on supplies - fine glitter, colored glitter, water proof glue - two varieties in case one failed, MS's pearly paint for the lid - adheres without sanding - (look closely and you will see the Ragu lid where it didn't!)!
