I made my first terrarium in the third grade but, when the plants died I gave up on horticulture. Helping with the community garden has rekindled my interest. In fact, I’ve been toying with the idea of creating a terrarium for quite sometime, but kept it to myself because I felt silly. This summer I took some steps and made a non-living terrarium out of: dollar-store moss, paper napkins, and branches I found in the neighborhood.
I have aspirations of adding to this whimsical world with Emmy as she grows, changing the scenery with the seasons. So far, I’ve only managed to make a few little toadstools using paper napkins:
Well, this Fall I want to put together a living terrarium ( with plants that I hope to keep alive). Luckily, Lane is planning to tackle this project with me! Anyone else want to join?
While I am always bursting at the seams with projects and ideas for more I seriously need to focus. Here goes the abridged list!
I’ve never sewn anything before (without help) and as previously mentioned I have a fondness for ribbon and recently discovered that Emmy does too!
She actually loves chewing on tags so I plan on sewing ribbons onto this fabric:
This ‘tag-blankie’ was inspired by Lotta’s Simple Sewing for Baby (thanks, Emily for the extended book loan!). Only thing is, I think I might be doing this by hand (yikes!).
- Gifts for soon-to-be mums and babes:
There are so many people I know that are expecting this season!
- Costume for Emmy:
…a plethora of ideas, but only time will tell which I decide to settle on : )
- Owl bookends:
This project is hard to describe, and I haven’t anywhere — but it’s in my mind, and I will blog about it when I finish.
At one point in my life, I was never without a camera (before the days of digital cameras, I carried a disposable one everywhere I went…craazy!). I suppose I let my desire to ‘capture the moment’ keep me from enjoying moments, so I stopped, but now I think time to resurrect the habit! This time, I want to actually learn how to use Daniel’s DSLR — Breezy‘s already given me a few pointers, but I still have so much to learn! Maybe it will improve the quality of photos I post? suggestions?
There are many many things on my bucket list but, knitting on there So, thanks to Lana, I have begun but, am having trouble keeping the consistent stitches. tips?
- Getting settled in the new home (painting, decor…etc):
This will include lots of little projects (probably like the ones in this former post)
- Hosting more creativity-events.
