Herb Garden

Last year I bought some of those flowers in a can that Fred Flare sells. Died.

Bought a few easy-to-care-for green plants and put them in the window. Died.

So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I successfully grew some herbs that my friend Judith gave me.

Now comes the problem. How do I maintain them? How often can I cut them? The chives in particular are looking a little crazy.

Enlighten me, dear herb garden experts, with your advice!

Have you discovered Pinterest yet? I'm obsessed with it.

Pinterest is a virtual bulletin board -- and it's way more organized than the real-life bulletin board on my wall at home. It's a great way to organize things that inspire you and things you want to make. It's also better than my old way of organizing my craft interests, which was to "star" them in my Google Reader. I went star crazy and I couldn't tell ya what's in that folder now!

Here are just a few projects I found on Pinterest that struck my fancy and made me want to run away from my full-time job to craft at home.

Stylish Blogger Award!

Despite my month and a half-long absence from blogging, Nikki at The Tolerant Vegan has given me a Stylish Blogger Award! (I bet she knew it was just what I needed to get back into blogging!)

As a recipient of the award, I have to do a couple things:

1. Share 7 things about myself
2. Award other fellow bloggers.
3. Contact these bloggers and tell them they've won.

7 Things About Me

1. I have an unnatural obsession with Paul McCartney
2. I won a beauty pageant when I was 4 years old. My mom saw how the mothers treated the daughters (mascara on a 2 year old, for example) and refused to let me go back. I didn't argue.
3. I was an AmeriCorps volunteer in 2005.
4. I'm frightened by the Statue of Liberty.
5. I can't pass up kits of any kind. Everything I need to make sushi? Sure!
6. I could easily see myself on an episode of Hoarders in a few years, surrounded by kits I referenced above.
7. I like to eat the chocolate around a Three Musketeers bar and then eat the inside nougat all by itself.

Tootsie Cuff Bracelet

Oh, the jokes we had in college.

In a recent post, I shared photos of the Hall and Oates coin purse I made for my friend. What I didn't tell you is that there was a bonus gift in that package, and it came in the form of....
