    I love to make Christmas and Hanukah gifts, so this is very useful! And best of all it doesn’t involve a hot glue gun. We burned our fingers to cinders on last year’s family craft night!

    Thank you so much for this link!! I was just thinking about amking these, but don’t like the recipes I have. My first response to everything I am looking for is “look it up on the internet” but for some reason, that didn’t occur to me in this case.

    I love gifts in a jar, and I’ve given many of them for Christmas gifts, with wonderful responses after Christmas when family and friends have tried them out.

    I was thrilled to find links to my pages on your blog, particularly when I found out what “mag” stands for and all that it means to you and your readers.

    Thank you so much for sharing these links with your readers! I hope everyone that tries the recipes or ideas ends up feeling the same way that I do — sometimes, you’re just not sure what to give someone, because you don’t want to clutter up their home with something they might not like, yet you still want to give a personal gift that means more than a box of chocolates or a tin of nuts.

    With gifts in a jar you can give a personal, homemade gift – some of them offer time-savings, in terms of putting together homemade soup, desserts or whatever, and others can have a personal touch, because you choose scents or mixes that you know the gift recipient will like – either in the kitchen, or relaxing in the bath.

    Thank you so much for including me in your blog. I feel very honored!

    Hi, I found this blog while searching for anyone writing about jar cakes. I mean the kind actually baked in the jar and “canned.” Have you tried this? The jar cakes / brownies also make wonderful gifts and are ready-to-eat, with a shelf life up to 3 months. I got so into this method that I started selling jar cakes on etsy. Check it out here: and let me know what you think! I’m a new business so I appreciate any feedback.

    Is AllFreeCrafts your own site? It’s pretty neat.

    I’d love to exchange jar tips with you. What is your favorite way to decorate these? I’m definitely going to follow your blog! Chat soon hopefully!

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe

I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
