A Jar to Share in Marriage

My co-worker and his wife celebrated their wedding with themes of Dios de Los Muertos. I incorporated this into their wedding gift- a shared jar containing notes about love.

J&J – A Wedding-Themed Jar


A simple-style in the dark and preferred colors of the Bride-to-Be. During the Bridal Shower her friends wrote down date-ideas for her and her new beau.

Favorite Jar Accessory: Mr. Spider (a wink to the Bride who loves these 8-legged creepies!)


A Cicada Farewell

Created for a co-worker and a friend who wore one of the most beautiful jade cicada necklace I’ve ever seen. And she brought silliness and generous amounts of coffee to my work day.

Her jar is full of quotes about friendship, new adventures and being a bad-ass woman.

Cicada drawn in pen and filled in with color pencil and marker. The poor guy had to be dissected in the process of securing him facing out from in the jar. Hands too big! Jar mouth to small! Paper fragile!

The paint covering the outside of the jar is watercolor…and I have no memory of making this purchase. Impulsive art buy? Sleep walker on aisle 5 of Michaels? Girl going crazy? Who knows! It worked and was a fun experiment!

Flecked with the finest gold. Thank you Ferrera Roche.

Jeanna Loves Alpacas!

Jar created for a lovely friend who loves alpacas and cuts my curls real good!
Her jar is filled with empowering quotes (because she’s a queen)

The alpacas are drawn in marker and color pencil. Inserted on the inside of the jar to create a window/glass box effect. The outside of the jar is painted in acrylic.
