My "thing"

Everyone needs a "thing" right? Like, there special little craft that they do. I'm afraid that I don't really have an official one. I've tried my hand at scrapbooking, knitting, and all that jazz. I could manage, but I really wasn't IN LOVE with it. I'm desperate to fill my time with something that I could find to be rewarding, and pretty. I decided to go to Michael's today and see what would inspire me. I ended up finding some 1/2 gallon mason jars that I thought would be cool to make faux terrariums, since I'm really not interested in actually growing anything. So here's what I did:




I was actually inspired to do something crafty from this girl here. This is my friend from high school. She just moved to Vermont and just has such a cool life. She's so creative and cool and pretty. She has an etsy shop too, but I'm not going to bother putting it here because it's currently closed due to her moving. I'll put it up when she's up and running again.

Anyway, I'm just generally inspired today. I want to make things and do things and just be creative.

  8. i'm happy to see you are feeling inspired. it looks beautiful. terrariums always make me feel happy and sad. happy because i think they are beautiful and sad because they are usually encased in glass jars....
