I've been craving some new electronics lately. I want an iPad mini pretty badly, and I also want to go back to my Mac computers. I use a Windows laptop right now, and I miss my MacBook. I use an iMac every day for work, and it's so nice to use that I think I want one for myself.
I'm also trying to save for a down payment to get a new car. I hit a deer with mine early on Christmas morning, and I cracked up the bumper and it's been making some pretty ominous noises ever since. Plus, it's getting older, and it's a coupe with not a lot of interior space, so I'd like to upgrade to something with 4 doors that's a little roomier. Trying to bring home 8' boards for projects in a Pontiac G5 is no easy task! I'd really love to get something like this:
Or maybe one of these...
So since I'm saving for two different things, I wanted to create some cute "piggy banks" to help inspire me and encourage me to save. I picked up a couple of smooth sided Bell jars from Michael's, and cut some cute 12"x12" scrapbook paper to about 5" tall.
Then I grabbed my hot glue gun and ran a line down the side of the paper, and wrapped it around the jar.
