Mason Jar Makeover

I've waved goodbye to the cluttered cabinet chaos and welcomed my trusty mason jars to the frontlines. They're not just for jams and pickles, folks! These 64oz beauties are my secret weapon for a tidy and stylish baking station.

Label Love

No mix-ups here! With chic black stickers and a dash of silver Sharpie flair, each jar proudly displays its contents. It's a simple touch that keeps the baking blunders at bay.

Dollar Tree Gardening Supplies | on the creek blog // www.onthecreekblog.com
The best gardening supplies at Dollar Tree!

Dollar Tree has definitely shown up this year regarding gardening supplies & decor. With their affordable prices, you can easily create a beautiful & bountiful garden without breaking the bank.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Garden Planters: They have so many cute planters in various sizes. They even have terracotta pots, which I love!

Storage Containers: I will talk about using Dollar Tree storage containers as mini greenhouses until the end of time because I love them so much! They can also be used to store gardening supplies in the off-season. They're such a good value!

Gardening Gloves & Tools: I'm constantly losing my gardening gloves & tools, so Dollar Tree always provides inexpensive replacements! They even have full-sized rakes this year!

Theme Decor: Dollar Tree spring/gardening theme decor is super cute this year. They have little signs to paint & hang up. They also have galvanized signs too! I even saw some gardening-themed ceramic paintable items for the kiddos. I'll definitely be getting my son some crafty things for his Easter basket this year!

2023 Seed Starting Adventures | on the creek blog //www.onthecreekblog.com
My 2023 seed starting adventures!

Seed starting is off to a weird start for me this year. Instead of planting everything at once, I've taken it slow, starting things at random times & using what I have.

My setup is super simple this year. 

I'm just using my huge bay window as my "greenhouse." I found a super cheap metal shelf at the thrift store & it works perfectly for organizing my seedlings. Because I'm working in small batches, it didn't make sense to bring out my large flats, so I'm using containers I got at Dollar Tree. They work really well as a greenhouse within a greenhouse & keep everything organized. It's easy to take the containers to the sink for watering. As the seedlings get bigger & are transplanted into larger pots, I use the lids of the containers as trays. I'm also using a super cute mini greenhouse I got at the thrift store.

To transplant, I'm just using the cups I had from years past. I cleaned them out at the end of the season last year, so they were ready to go this year. I also got a few supplies at Dollar Tree.
