Peaches & Cream Jello

I discovered this blog long time ago and I loved's amazing the things that this lady does with jello!!! so the other day I was at (guess where...:) D.I, and I found the same mold she used for this recipe! I tried...a little tricky to make and not as pretty as hers, ( see the pictures), but yummy....

cute, easy and that is my kind of craft.

...that's why I made these hairpin vases...they make the cutest little present for your visiting teaching ladies, sisters, kids teachers or neighbors...I made one for my neighbor Stephanie, as a thank you for baby sitting Diego the other day, and for my sisters on mother's day.... only need a glass jar (50cents at D.I), cute hair pin (I used the typical black one and glued a fabric yo-yo that I made, but you can glue cute buttons, or use a hairpin that already has some kind of decoration) and a glue gun.

instructions: easy: hot glue the pin on the jar. the end.

...and then you can make cute thank you or i love you notes, or attach a picture or whatever using the hairpin...cute huh?
