Metallic Painted Jars

 When I was asking to review two kids craft books by my friend Amanda from Crafts by Amanda I just couldn’t say no.  I was shocked that I was inspired to make something for ME out of those books and not even for the kids.  Although these metallic painted jars are easy enough that the kids could make them.  I am not compensated at all for my review of these books and all opinions are my own.
