Sunday Recovery

To anyone who has been visiting the ES page recently, you have probably noticed I haven't updated in quite some time.  The past few weeks have been beyond crazy (in a good way) because I have accepted a new job at a fantastic digital startup company called PureWow.  PureWow produces a daily e-mail targeted towards women interested in anything from fashion to culture to recipes.  My role will be on the sales side, helping to expand digital advertisers for the site.  While it was of course very bittersweet to end my five year chapter with News America, I am really looking forward to this new adventure. In my time off in between jobs, I was able to take two vacations (more to come on those) and have a couple of days to get my life back in order.  Due to the craziness of interviewing, I didn't have much time to work on my growing list of DIY projects.  I decided to take advantage of my lazy Sunday yesterday and had some fun with mason jars.  Using just twine and the jar, I created a rustic looking piece by simply wrapping the twine around the top of the jar.  This took no more than 5 minutes to complete and fits perfectly on our distressed end table.  For now it contains matches from some of our favorite restaurants, but I plan to re-create this look to hold candles, travel trinkets, etc.  What are some creative things you have done with mason jars? xx
