Despite it being mid-April, there is still not much green out here in NE, so I've been making up for it inside the house. I've wanted a terrarium for the longest time, and finally got around to making one. It's hard to photograph, because of the camera flash, but I really like how it turned out.
I made it a little different on the two sides, and added tiny Hobby Lobby deer, cause I thought they were cute. If you're interested, I used this terrarium tutorial. After checking at a few stores, I ended up getting the activated charcoal from the fish section at Walmart. I wish I had known I could use that before wasting my time checking garden stores!
Last project I'll share today, I've been working on some "inspired" dresses. I'd like to eventually get a whole line of them, and maybe one day sell them on etsy. I'd have to invest in a new machine (serger) first though, so I'll have to see what the response is...
first up, is a military inspired. Here's my unfinished Air Force dress. I have a few things to add to it. Thankfully, I have friends in every service with little girls, so I'll be using them as models in the future.
Next up, I'm trying to do Disney princess dresses. Annaleigh dies every time we pass through Walmart and she sees the princess costumes. I die every time I see they're $20+ dollars for something so cheaply made, haha! I was able to make her this one for less than $10, and it's so pretty and full. Annaleigh loves it, and the next requested one is Elsa.
