I have been Jamming Out

For those that have had a chance to create your own, you know how satisfying it is.  A sense of accomplishment!  I was raised canning, and food drying thanks to my mom.  As an adult (on my own) I thought I would give it a try.  I am grateful my mom is around for that quick phone call and advice while I am neck deep in bubbling hot liquid, attempting to do what she does so well.

This year I am proud to say I canned (jarred) peach jam, nectarine jam, stewed tomatoes and a flop batch of peach (was going to be jam) chunky syrup.  I have frozen shucked corn, dried onion, tomatoes, peaches, plums, pears, peppers and bananas….whew!  I think I must be getting ready for the winter months when where we have to snow machine out from the cabin in order to get to town for food.  I am ready to hide out and enjoy the deep snow.  The hubby even chopped and stacked 8 chords of wood to keep us warm.  What an accomplishment for our first official winter in Colorado, at out own cabin, in the high altitude of 9600 ft elevation.  After full-time RVing for 6 years this is our new adventure.  Bring on the snow!

Okay, enough about me!  How about these fun stamps that can be used in so many ways?  I decided to make some cool labels for my canning jars.  These stamps come in all seasons, and are perfect for finishing off these beauties! They would also make great gift tags too.
