Didn't get much writing done this weekend. Had the eldest niece over to spend time with my daughter. Went to my parents' on Saturday so Spike could help my Dad with some yard work. while he was doing that, I took the girls down to Mom's work and did some shopping for container gardens. Bought seeds: lavender, chamomile, basil, cilantro, spearmint, carrots, and radishes. Bought a couple large bags of potting soil, a couple of buckets, a few hanging pots. Oh, and I bought a package of my favorite flowers. I love Calla Lilies. They were out of the white ones so I bought "Burst" which is a hint of burgundy/red to the callas.
Sunday, all the seeds were started, except for the carrots and radishes, and the callas went into a large pot I got from my parents garden shed. I also finished the little project I gave myself on Friday. I'm telling you, I can NOT wait until I hit 50 followers here so I can have my first contest.
It only took me a couple of hours to make two. apparently, I zoned out when arranging the little flowers. The first one was an experiment to see how I could do it and my daughter got it as a little gift. The second box is much more put together and prettier, so this one is going into the prize vault. Even Spike said he was amazed by how well I put them together, that I had my Dad's creativeness in putting something together out of nothing.
I want to make a few more! =)
My next ones, though, will definitely be experiments. Different finishes and paint techniques.
How was everyone's weekend? Do anything fun and exciting? =)
