Megan's Mason Jar Tumbler

I have pretty amazing friends.

Since I moved to Seoul, care packages from friends back home have become an unexpected and cherished event. Anytime that I feel worn down or just a little sad they always seem to know, and perk me right up.

Every time I get a box full of goodies it’s like Christmas all over again!

This Christmas had some great items, and one of my favorites was a unique handmade gift from my lovely friend, Megan. Megan is quite the crafty gal and made me a needlepoint kitchen towel last Christmas, and the amount of care she put into it sent me over the moon. This Christmas was full of more handmade awesomeness in the form of a mason jar tumbler.

I cannot tell you how excited I was to receive this little beauty which was packed full of instant drink mixes that I have been trying out all week. I love using my mason jar tumbler so much that I have started making Crystal Light in large quantities so I can sip from my jar at all times. I think I am a bit obsessed with it right now. >.>

Here is a simple tutorial from adelynSTONE on how to make your own mason jar tumbler in just 3 easy steps and you only need to have a mason jar, a drill, a rubber grommet and a pair of wire cutters to make your own! 
Megan added her own spin to the mason jar tumbler by using a stainless steel drink straw (you can purchase the steel drink straws, here) and by making an adorable cozy from her grandmother's stash of vintage fabric and buttons. The end result is a perfectly unique handmade gift that has become a part of my daily life.
