Food in Jars Classes in the March Issue of Country Living

When I was growing up, one of the few magazines that my mom subscribed to was Country Living (she also got Newsweek each week thanks to her step-father, but that one wasn’t nearly as interesting to me). She loved the spreads of rustic antiques and because I loved anything she did, I’d pour over them with her. I believe the seeds of my jar love were planted during those days.


Many months ago, an editor from Country Living sent me an email, asking for some details on my classes. I gave her all the information I could, all the while buzzing with excitement that I might just make it into the pages of this magazine that I’d spent so many hours with.

Earlier today, I heard that the March issue was on shelves and that my classes had made the cut (thanks so much for the tip, Ashley!). I raced over to my neighborhood Barnes and Noble and flipped through the pages until I found the spread. I snuck in to the corner and took a couple photos right then and there. It’s just a little mention, but still thrills me to the core. Make sure to take a peek!

Also, in other news, I’m hosting a business card giveaway over on my personal blog, Apartment 2024. If that’s something you might be interested in, please click over to enter.

  • I posted this on my Facebook page when I got the magazine. Too cool!
    Did you happen to see the jar lid labels in there? Hand-stitched on brown kraft paper(?), they also have little felt veggies and a fill-in-the-blank space.

  • I saw it yesterday too! Congrats on being mentioned in such a great magazine, that’s exciting:@)

  • Marisa, This was my experience too! My mother always had country living and I ended up leafing through them too. Congrats!

  • Congratulations! I’m headed to the Barnes and Noble myself directly after work to check it out. I’ve not seen too many classes in my area. Would be neat to attend or be a part of one!

  • I believe it’s truly a small world. Several of us at work share our magazines and this issue just showed up on the pile. Friday I’d picked it up and quickly paged through as we were walking out the door. Can’t wait to get back Monday to see your article and share with the girls you’re awesome blog. Congrats!!!
