1  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Re: Make Your Own Worm Hotel - Home Composting Tutorial! on: October 04, 2006 08:11:10 AM
Sometimes I think that my compost area is the ugliest area of my home....and my dog always seem to get all the scraps out and eat them no matter how hard I try and cover them. This is something I really want to try and I thank you for the tute. My husband and I have tried using an old swimming pool for a "worm hotel" but  alas...my dog loves to dig.....swimming pool full of worms and dirt....how can you blame him...HE'S A DOG!
 I'm trying the "in-home" worm hotel for sure. I think I could use a bigger one because all my husband and I eat is fresh food, so theres TONS of food scraps daily, but being a crafter...I have MANY tubs, containers, what-have-you, just right for this job....I really don't even think I need to get ANYTHING!......... I have manure and compost, a big tub and lid, leaves...oh yea...worms is all I need! We have a bunch of pumpkins and squash growing out of our compost trying to detour our dog from wanting the scraps....I am really excited about not having to throw my food scraps right on top of my squash now!
I am doing this soon if not today!
Thank you so much...............COMPOST ON! Sustainable organic farming and living is the way to our (better) future!

Thank you so much guys.....I LUV being outside and playing in the dirt.....of coarse it IS our pasttime fun.
MissConduct you can pay me if you wanna come see it! I don't know anyone who is willing to pay for seeing some herbs and flowerz.
 We have a seed buying obsession mainly of wildflowerz...hence the name~ teehee. Most of the stuff is from a seed packets, but some of the cactus and agave's are bought. The greenhouse is for the stuff that needs to be nursed back to health or stuff that won't live in our heat in the summer and the stuff that can't take our slightly cold winters. Mainly tropicals. Since I'm the one whom likes to give things a chance....most of the greenhouse is filled with stuff that needs a little luv and helping hand. I will be selling 4in herbs at the market sometimes so if your in the area come visit and buy some herbs, or whatever I have at the time!~

I can't wait for the voting polls to open...SO many green thumbs..I'm in heaven. I only wish I had some friends that shared my same passion for the outdoors near me... Embarrassed anyone wanna move in?....JK ~already have 2 friends with 2 dogs living here from Portland so its a full house.

Thank you guys so much it was fun making it. This is what it looks like on...but I have to wear a belt to hold it up...looks nice with a belt I think. Its so heavy because of the polyester ties, it kinda slides right  down your hips.

So by NO means is this my idea...There are TONS of different tie skirts and jean tie skirts
I like to thank all those who inspired my skirt....It was my first one so I used a pair of jeans too big for me, so I'll be selling this one. I hope I can find as cool of ties for my next one! Thanks fellow craftsters the front

and the back

My husband and I are entering our gardening work from Austin,Tx. He IS the creator and I am the "go-to gal". I do have my fair share of creating but mainly pots. Please enjoy and tell us what you think. Here are pictures of veggie and herb gardens, and just some different ladscaping around. Some of the pictures are of the begining of spring, and then now summer time.

9  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: collage shoes on: June 13, 2006 10:10:13 AM
So I had to try this out and didn't use a clear pair of shoes, plus I left the top alone...maybe I should cover it too, but since the tops not very hard like the bottom of the shoes I wasn't sure if it would wrinkle or stuff when I walked. But for now I still like them, and will do another pair when I get the RIGHT pair of shoe. I just used a favorite pair that are all scuffed up where I could cover them...jsut to try it out. But they didn't come out too bad. I also used triple thick glass glaze to cover them and protect them from any weather or water that I may come across. Here they are...thanks for the inspiration
