{FREEBIE} Toilet Fizzies …

25 Mar

I’ve been having fun experimenting with natural cleaning options and, because I have a 10 year old son, wanted something that would work for those ‘in-between days’ for the toilet bowl. I discovered toilet fizzies and let me tell you, not only are they fun for your children to drop into the loo, they are also a great option for freshening it up on those days you don’t have time to do a full scrub.


Here’s the recipe I used: Continue reading


It’s Beginning to Smell a lot Like Christmas! – Christmas Candles, Gift Boxes and Tags

31 Oct

It’s all heads down, bums up at Just Jane HQ at the moment. Why? Well Christmas is coming and that means lots of markets to get ready for. And even though I had plans in place fairly early on – in August in fact – I still am not ready and the first market is in two days O.M.G!

Soooo, where to start? Well, way back in August (maybe even July) I found these great coloured jars and just knew they would be perfect for my Christmas candle range. Then I had to test them to make sure they were suitable for use as candles and to find out what size wicks worked best, etc – you can never do too much testing as a candle maker 🙂 The great thing about these jars is that they will be fab for re-using in most rooms of the house – see below for a little bath salt recipe. I wanted to make them attractive as gifts on their own so added some handmade gift tags which include my labelling and I’m thinking about adding a little handmade polymer clay charm to each as well – not sure how I’ll be fixed for time on that one though. So here’s the almost finished product. Continue reading

I Spy Photo Game {Wedding | Party | Printable Freebie}

7 Feb

My WordPress analytics for 2011 showed that this post received more hits than any other of my posts last year, so I decided it was time for a follow up!

Let’s start with a basic Google search here. What an incredible number of styles and wording there are around!

I still think that this game is a great ice breaker and gives the kids something to do at a wedding. It would also make a great activity for those big special occasion parties – you know the ones: wedding anniversaries, special age parties, etc. Just change the words around or write your own rhyme (I’m absolutely no good at that!) and you’re good to go.

As a special thank you for taking the time to read my post I’ve decided to give away a printable I Spy. I found this rhyme on an image in the Google search, but unfortunately I am unable to find the original source so if these are your words please let me know so that I can credit you properly!

To get your free download file please click here (updated … you will be taken to the Freebies page of to download these files).

Enjoy! Jane x

Super little gift boxes for your baby bulb candles!

28 Sep

As you know, I love gift boxes and I love candles! When I was trying to come up with a gift for my son’s teachers for the end of term it made sense to join the two together and make gift boxes for my baby bulb candles.

Gift boxes for the baby bulb candles

Making them prompted me to write a post for my Just Jane Designs blog and to include a great freebie of the template and the word art.
