I have been bitten by the jamming and canning bug this year, in a most delightful way. In accordance with this new obsession, Mason jars are EVERYWHERE in my house, and we’re using them for more and more tasks - storage, eating, and drinking. While sipping coffee from my wide-mouth pint jar the other day, I thought, why not design a cozy for this? It’d be a fabulous holiday gift for all the crafty folk in our lives.
