Strawberry picking and making strawberry jam

After reading about inchmarks Friday night strawberry jam making session, I decided I needed to give making jam a shot.  
We went to the strawberry patch and picked some deliciously sweet fresh strawberries, this place just has the best strawberries ever.  
Came home, made the jam the next day (minus the pectin).  It was so much fun
 making jam that I decided to try a bit of inchmarks comments to add some blueberries to the jam mix.  
Found some fresh blueberries, used the remainder of the strawberries I had, and made some "heavenly hash."  This time I used the pectin. :)-
I think in total we have about 8 jars of 
each, plus some for eating right away. Now, what to do with all that jam I made in a family of infrequent jam eaters?

Etsy shop to get updated

I put one of the purses up in my Etsy shop and finally put a link to my shop under my links section to the left.  I will be updating the shop soon!

Been on vacation

Been away on vacation, hence the lack of posts.  Back now and planning a baby shower I am hosting this weekend.  Oh, and it turns out that I am indeed allergic to poison ivy, oops.  In the meantime, here is a quick fun crafty thing I found the other night.
How to make a kleenex holder from Martha Stewart.
