I would not worry about it too much, Lisa! I have heard Ebay has been a bit slow for a while now. You can always re-list it, too. I have put things on, and you just never know whether it will get bid on like crazy or if no one at all will bid. A lot of times, there are so many things to look at, that bidders may not even see yours til the last day of the auction. Would you mind letting us all know your ebay seller name so we can check out your auctions when you have them?

Lightbulb a suggestion for lisa

hi to lisa and everyone.

a friend of mine has been selling on ebay for years now.
she suggested to me that what really seems to work for her right now ,while buying is slow, is to put items on the 99 cent auctions and let the highest bidder win the bottle. but the way u dont loose on this is to make your shipping & handling higher(but reasonable) and by playing the auctions "odds", kind alike a gamble. she makes out in the long run by selling some items high, some a little low, and it all evens out nicely witht he shipping & handling as a buffer. maybe this might help u sell a few bottles and get your name out there in ebay land- she also recommends yahoo auctions this way too.
good luck-hope this helps u out .
sincerely-sheila ann anderson

Painted jars!

Hi, I really love those jars. Haven´t seen them in Sweden but stumbled over them when surfing for painting ideas. Now I know what to do with all empty glassjars. Usually I save them for preserves but now I know how to make them a little nicer.

Lightbulb spring jar ideas

how about some simple flowers sponge painted all over the jar.(like a daisy pattern)

or perhaps hand paint some daffodils or purple hyacinths or some pretty tulips growing all the way around the jar w/ tufts of grass along the bottom. you could paint a white lattice or picket fence for the background.

or maybe some birdhouses on poles all the way around the jar.

maybe some primitive look trees painted all the way around with some little flowers at the bottom growing out of little tufts of grass.

or cute little strawberries growing everywhere.
and a saying like"spring is berry nice"

or maybe a simple "spring is in the air " sign on two different sides of the jar or maybe paint it a few times in a repeating type could maybe paint little flowers painted here and there between the words. and a nice spring scented candle.

welll- thats about all i can come up w/ for now.
hope this helps out.
sincerely- sheila ann anderson

These are so cool!!

I just found this thread. I'm so amazed at how talented you all are! It's so neat to see what people have come up with, and how nice it all turned out.

I don't do a lot of jar crafts, but seeing some of these has inspired me to maybe start collecting jars and try one or two.

I have made bath salts and put them in baby food jars. I made cute little labels from the computer, and wrapped them in colored saran wrap. And I put colored fine coarse sea salt in the bottoms of baby food jars and stuck a candle down inside (so the lid would still fit on) and wrapped them the same way. I put a bunch of single serving packages of teas, and hot cocoa's in with it, and gave it all away as Christmas "relaxation" bundles.

They were a big hit, and everyone was so impressed that I had thought of this. (Least of all, I was really impressed with myself!! -- I don't think of myself as a crafty person)

Well, I just wanted to share what I have done with jars... maybe you can try it too.

Thanks for all the inspiration!

Do you have any more to share? I love seeing all the ideas come to life.
