I can’t believe it’s October already. But I’m excited because Fall is my favorite season. Being that I live in Georgia, it’s still 100 degrees outside, so I’m over the heat. I’m ready to wrap up in my blankets, wear my cardigans and oversized sweaters, and drink apple cider.
September was a busy month that went by so fast. Here are a few things I created last month. Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see on news and events I have coming up.
For custom orders DM me on IG or email me, firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be a panelist at the GSG Pop Up Shop on October 12th at Genesis Atlanta Studio and Creative Loft.
Lastly, I’m searching for 4-8 guest bloggers to be featured on the blog throughout November. To be considered you must creative a blog post of 100 words or more about something you’re passionate about, with 3 to 4 supporting photos. Send you’re blog content to email@example.com by October 18th.
So, I thought I would end the month by sharing some of the custom orders and creations I’ve completed this month. As some of you may know, I am an Event Planner and I have a small business called The Passion Palette specializing in events, customer decor and gifts, and marketing consulting. One of my goals for 2019, is to expand my business by advertising and collaborating more. I want to start sharing more of my work with you all. My new challenge is to share my creations each month in a blog post and develop a web page for The Passion Palette.
This month, I completed 2 custom order and 1 event. My photographer hasn’t gotten back to me with the photos from my most recent event. But I do have picture of the custom order from this month.
Custom Order: Travel Coffee Cups

I want to bring more DIY and creative blogs to Passion Locked. I mean arts and crafts are truly a passion of mine. So today I will be showing you how to make these cute little candy jars from clay pots and fish bowls.
This is a great DIY projects for your home, office, and gifts. Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I think this candy jar will be great to decorate your home or office with, or give as a gift. I will be making three of these Candy Jars, all different colors.
Here’s what I am using:
4.25 in Clay Pot and Saucer from Home Depot (0.78 each, pot and saucer sold separately)
Mini Fish Bowl from The Dollar Tree
Wooden Ball from Hobby Lobby ($2.99/ 4pk)
Acrylic Paint and Sponge brushes, for this project I am using 3 colors: CraftSmart Red, Anita’s Royal Fuchsia, and Folk Art 676E Inca Gold
For decorative supplies I am using Gold Adhesive Diamond Wrap and Red Diamond Wrap from The Dollar Tree
Loctite Super Glue
To start, paint the clay pot and saucer and wooden ball. I painted one coat, let it dry then painted a second coat.
Side Note: I used the parchment Paper to protect my table top from the paint.
Then, using Loctite super glue- glue the wooden ball to the top (center) of the saucer. As well as gluing the fish bowl to the (bottom) clay pot.
Now, it’s time to decorate. I am using the adhesive diamond wrap around the bottom of the gold candy jar and the red diamond wrap around the bottom of the red candy jar. You can personalize the candy jar with other decorative stickers or letters. I plan on actually personalizing these candy jars for special people- so I’m not going to post the finished product in this blog. But closer to Valentine’s Day I will post the finished look on my IG (@passionlocked) account.
Lastly, Fill the candy jar with you favorite sweet treats.
