Sonoran Living Segment {DIY}


Hey friends! I’ve gotten a few e-mails from readers wanting to know how I did on the show. Thank you for being so supportive, you are all SO sweet!! I think it went pretty well for my first time. I was a little nervous at first…but I think I warmed up after about 30 seconds. We were just sitting there chatting and Stephanie said “okay we’re almost on…” and I was like what?! Then a few seconds later we were really on! lol! It definitely went by a lot faster than I thought, so I didn’t get to talk about everything, but overall I think it went pretty well. Stephanie was super fun to do the show with! What a cute gal! The whole studio was awesome and it was fun to see how everything goes down. They move FAST in there… yet they always look great!


Here’s the article they published on Sanoran Living. And I’ve embedded the video, if you’d like to watch! I’m sharing how to make those DIY Apothecary Jars that have been all the craze these days! There’s so many ways to make these jars using different size vases and bases. And you can get even more creative with the fillers! So fun for the holidays!

    I loved your segment. I too want to head out to the dollar store to get some jars. I was wondering where you got the wood for the cupcake stand and if you could post a tutorial on how to make those. That was so cute! My daughters birthday is this week and I want to do the birthday apothecary jar. I love you blog. You are so creative!

  30. FANTASTIC job my friend!! What an opportunity!!

  32. Hi Jamilyn~
    I found your blog not too long ago, and I am SO glad! You are adorable and inspiring…I already have a list of projects (including the desk make-over–wow!!).
    My question is that I have searched EVERYwhere (the very next day after watching the segment on tv) and the only place I can find the jars with lids are Michael’s for $4.99 each. I wanted to make these as gifts, and was hoping to make about twelve so I was a little heartbroken…I know sometimes things change fast, so I was wondering which dollar store and how long ago did you buy them???
    (I live in the East Valley, but I had hoped the 99cent store and DollarTree would be the same in AZ?)
    Thank you!!! I look forward to MANY more inspiring ideas from you!!! :)

    • Ah thanks so much! I found them at the dollar tree about 2 months ago. I would ask the manager about ordering them in. I had to order more from my dollar store along with the foam balls that are fun to fill them with. Hope you’re able to find them!! If they’re sold out, I know Michaels jars go 50% off every few weeks as well. They would be the perfect gifts!
