The big terrarium I put together two years ago desperately needed replanting. See? My aloe plant was trying to escape!
I don’t really have enough light for succulents, but I get them anyway and just replace them when they start getting leggy and sparse. This time around I planted non-succulents.
I chose plants with different leaf sizes and colors, and I made sure they all had the same light and water requirements.
In case you missed it here’s how I made my little terrarium mushrooms, and here are my basic terrarium planting instructions.
Now, let’s see if I can keep these alive for 2 years!

Once in a while someone will ask me what’s behind the big curtain in my studio. Unfortunately there’s nothing as exciting as the Wizard of Oz back there. I just needed storage space for inventory, paper, envelopes, and such, so I put up some shelving and hung curtains in front. It’s nice to be able to pull them closed and make the room seem tidy, while still keeping my stockpile within arm’s reach.
Ok, those are just begging to be made into a gif…
Oh yeah, gif-y goodness.

My window boxes are looking glorious right about now! Do you have a good spot to hang one? If so, do it! I planted daffodil bulbs and pansies in the fall and pretty much forgot about them. They survived this especially cold winter, and now they’re blooming all over the place. Next fall I think I’ll double up (or triple up?) on the flower bulbs!

I know it’s a little early, but I just added my new Mother’s Day cards to the shop!

I’m working on updating some of my older card designs. My style has changed quite a bit since I created my earliest cards, but I love their sentiments too much to discontinue them. Do you ever revisit old projects and redo them when your tastes change?
By the way, next week I’ll have a bunch of new Mother’s Day cards ready for you!
