Rainbow Cookies n' Milk in Cloud Jars

Recently I was contacted by Adams Media publishing about reviewing two new books. The first book (the second will be a post in the near future) is DIY Mason Jars: Thirty-Five Creative Crafts and Projects for the Classic Container by Melissa Averinos. 
I know I am not alone when I say that I love Mason jars!  What's not to love?  They are versatile, easily accessible, and exude a classic charm. I know I have had tons of food crafting fun with them~here, here, and here.
Right off the bat I fell in love with this cloud jar craft, which is pictured on the book's cover. In the book the jar is filled with cotton balls (cute!), but the cookie lover in me came up with another idea:)  I was so excited to get busy on this milk and cookies project, and lo and behold, I had all of the supplies on hand...WOO HOO! (The book is filled with doable, fun crafts just like this one, and I can't wait to whip up another. I have my eye on the Chalkboard Pantry Jars...) 

A rainbow was the logical cookie choice, complementing the blue sky and arching over the mouth of the jar just right.  My rainbow inspiration came from some adorable graphics by the crazy talented  Amy, of Living Locurto. I am a huge fan of her creations! Isn't the color combination of this rainbow pretty?

(Though I was given the above mentioned book, I was not compensated in any other way, nor compelled to post a review.  The opinion stated is my own.)
