Wow, totally adorable! I might have to copy that idea...
Anyone want some empty baby food jars with lids, along with some empty spice jars with accompanying lids? PM me! I have a whole shopping bag full...
FYI...Kitchen stuff is all taken!
Anyone interested in a breadmaker? I have one, made a few breads with it, and now the novelty has worn off. Too much hassle, too much space for me, but if a keener wants to pick this up, they're welcome to it! I also have a rice maker to give away, plus some Christmas themed cookie tins.

DH had it, he was affected for about 9 months in total. The month he had it the worst, there were a few nights where I sat up straight in bed, fearing his coughing was going to make him unable to catch his breath. One instance it was pretty close. I'd mentally calculate how long it would take me to...
Here's a neat alternative to storing your kid's art!
