15 Clever Mason Jar Gift Ideas for Mom - perfect for a last minute gift!

A few years ago, I was on WDRB in Louisville, sharing some simple ideas for cute handmade gifts for Mother’s Day.

It was my second time on WDRB in the Morning, and I didn’t throw up or pass out (even though I had dreams the night before, I would do both. And fall down the stairs and break all of the Mason Jars on my way into the station *wink*.


First, let me tell you, figuring out how long 3 minutes is while you’re live on the air might as well be a question on the SAT.  I think that’s the hardest thing to get used to, knowing how much to talk about and when to start wrapping things up.

Luckily Candice (the morning show host) is a pro and kept me on track. I was much less nervous this time and watched the playback and picked up on a few things to work on before my next segment, but overall I felt pretty good about it.


You’ll be able to catch me on WDRB in the morning every few weeks now, sharing creative ideas and projects.  This summer, I’ll also be talking about some crafts to help keep your kids occupied while they are out of school.
