new projects, oldprojects

I love working on new things. Love it. Unfortunately that means old projects get left behind.  It’s a terrible habit, and one that I work on daily.  Newest project has been making freezie cozies in all sorts of themes.  Working on Star Wars was great, now I’m working on making the My Little Pony character themed ones.  Lots of fun, and I get to play with my stash of sequins.  I knew I bought and collected them for a reason beyond their sparkliness.

Sparkle & Doom DesignsThey’re sitting on an old project that I need to get done. :) So that’s what I’ll be doing this week: working on an old project with popcorn bites of freezie cozies and Anna between!

growing Pinterest celery

There’s this pin,

This pin…

and this pin.

I thought I’d give it a try.  I’m not that huge of a celery fan, so I don’t grow it in my garden.  But I thought I’d give it a try as a container/indoor plant.

I popped it into the dirt straightaway, and watered it semi-daily.  And it started shooting up green leaves on day 3 or 4.  You apparently have to wait a bit until you can harvest any, so it’s best to keep buying from the market until you can have a row of started celery like in the first pin.  I’ll have to figure out where I can grow a row of celery without the cats or dogs knocking it around. That’s a wee green onion I planted the root end of beside the celery.  :) So go ahead! Plant your celery! Gather the ends from family & friends who don’t want them! Start a celery movement! :)

PS. Sorry Thriftygirl, I think I killed the orchid you gifted me 2 years ago. :’( I’m not a great plant person.
