Can't. Stop. Making. Things.

Well, it's simple.  Doesn't take much time or effort. 

But I needed a way to get my window full of seedlings, and a way to keep track of what each little plant was.  And it needed to be freakin' cute, because it's a little apartment, and I look at them all day.   So... voila.   Hello My Name Is cups.   Take a cup, put a sticker on it, write in the name of the plant, and fill with dirt.  Add a seed, and wait patiently. 

Can you tell I love red???    Grin






sometimes the simplest ideas are extra fun.

Ahaha, this is really sweet :-) Could you do me one favour? If you ever plant a mystery seed and you're not sure what it is, PLEASE PLEASE write 'Hello, my name is: INIGO MONTOYA"? And just have it in there with all the others, all innocent-looking? Please? [grin]

Very cute.  I might try that with the kids at my school so they can stop asking me which plant is what since we lost the labels that stick in the soil.  Smiley

So cute!  When I first saw the picture I was gonna ask where you got such cute and creative little planting pots.  You could seriously market these things.  Little kits with some seeds and a couple cute red cups with labels.  I think you may be on to something.

So cute!

Of course, I'd have to have at least ONE plant named Inigo Montoya.

Great idea!  Although I wonder if I wouldn't feel guilty eating a vegetable that introduced itself so sweetly to me... Wink
