Houston Life TV #NationalMasonJarDay Recap

Earlier this month, I had the fantastic opportunity to talk about one of my passions - more like a two in one combined - crafting and national holidays. In the recent years, national days of "whatever" have become so popular I am wondering how we ever survived prior. From national chocolate chip cookie day, to national cotton candy day (one of my favorites...of course) if you can think it, I'm pretty sure we have it all. 

Celebrate National Mason Jar Day with easy DIYs, Tips & Tricks!

Houston Life TV is Houston's local lifestyle tv show that reached out to me to showcase my love of National Days. The day selected...National Mason Jar Day. If you are a crafter, you know a staple in the toolbox are mason jars. Regardless of your "style" you can always revamp a mason jar to fit into any event. Check out the segment below and tune in to Houston Life everyday at 1pm cst on Channel 2.
