Have you ever looked at a recipe and said to yourself.... I can do this? It looks so good and easy to make and then go to make it and it doesn't turn out properly. That is what happened with this recipe but I made it work.

It is time to think outside of the box and use ingredients that you may not think go together or that you may not ever tried before. This month's ingredients are Lemongrass and Quinoa, two ingredients that I use frequently, although the Lemongrass I usually only use for tea.
Welcome to the first spring craft blog hop challenge for the spring season! We're challenging you to create and share a Valentine's Day, President's Day, or Mardi Gras craft tutorial. This hop will run from January 20 - February 17 and you can share your creations in the link-up at the bottom of the post.
Meet all 18 hosts!

I am so excited be a host to this Spring Craft Blog Hop with all this great crafters.
This is a great opportunity for me to be able to get some of the crafts ideas that I have stored up in my little brain and also I know that I will be able to find some great inspirations from all the crafters around the world that will be linking up.
For my first project of this season, I made a simple candy jar. I found these cute little jars in the dollar bins at Micheals Store and I really wish I would have bought more than 2. Hopefully they will still have them there when I am able to get back to the store.
This project I thought would be a great Valentine's gift to make and give for family and friends. It is also a great craft that you can make with your children and give as a teacher's gift.
Jars with lids (I bought mine from Michaels but you could use any kind of jars)
Buttons (or any type of embellishments)
Candies to fill the jar
Wash and dry your jars to make sure they are clean.
Apply Washi Tape on jars and lids. I taped one or two stripes around the jar. I did make a design on the lid of the small jar.
Attach buttons or embellishments with glue.
I did make some Valentine Tags which you can print out and use (for some reason my printer doesn't want to work. I will add a picture when I can get one.
For this project I added hugs and kisses candy to one and the other one I added S'More Goldfish crackers so my tags correspond to these. Below are the tags that I made. Print them, punch a hole in the corner and add them with a string to your project. I have both tags on the same page. Let me know if you just want one of them and I will make a new you a printable with just one of the tags.
Remember to scroll down to the bottom and link up your Valentine's Day, President's Day and Mardi Gras crafts... I can't wait to see what you will bring. This blog hop is open until February 17th so you have lots of time to come up with your wonderful crafts.
