Oh the number of times I've said that. Typically I can do what I find on Pinterest, but I add my own twist or change it up.
I decided to make a terrarium and found a great jar at the Goodwill. I got the supplies and realized that the jar isn't big enough for all of the plants. I've got Rosemary, Lavender, a Venus Fly trap, and a pitcher plant. Gracie has been begging for bug eating plants.
Today I ended up planting the bug plants in an old fashioned candy jar that I got from the Goodwill a few years ago. It had been sitting on my counter with one (1) candy cane in it for nearly two years.
Now, looking at the rosemary and Lavender, I know I need them in two separate containers.
My thought process for the terrarium was to have an easy way to grow plants without killing them. Now I find myself back to several containers. I'm determined not to murder these ones.
So, here goes the journey to keeping plants alive!
PS. How is it that I can keep tiny humans alive but I'm a plant serial killer?

Friendships should go both ways. It's occurred to me lately that nearly all of my friends are takers. I will listen, hug, wipe tears, cry, and shun meanies for all of my friends. The moment I need comfort, Cassy and Andrew pull through. Always. Everyone else ignores any communication with me. So I've decided that I'm not being used anymore. Call me because you're having a rough time just a week after ignoring a text seeking help. I get it, we all need support, but if you're not there when I need you, why should I listen to you?
So, Cassy, Andrew, you're my go to peeps.

So, I have had to force myself to life. Creating and focusing on the wee ones has focused me to not sleep all day and night. Still sleeping a lot, but redeveloping myself takes longer and longer each time I fall.
So I see this cute project on Pinterest. Glass etching. I like challenges, so I learned about it, bought the supplies, waited two months for a design I loved, and finally finished the mirror I was planning on for Topher's parents' 40th anniversary. A month late.
