Second time lucky

    On Sunday I will be doing a vintage and craft fair which is the second one that I will have done however the first one was a complete and utter waste of time as it wasn't advertised at all and hardly any one turned up and many people left early without making a sale at all!! I asked the person who runs it for my money back and she went on this massive rant calling me a child and saying that I didn't know what I was talking about. So that didn't end entirely well however, the company that I have gone with this time is much more experienced and well known, unfortunately this means that a table at one of their fairs is slightly more expensive however, I know that there is a chance that if my stuff is good enough that I can make my money back.
   So any way see you there hopefully on the 29th of July at Fat Cats bar in stoke on trent Hanley! :)

Bottle plants

So I looked at my innocent (innocente according to my dad LOL) and I thought "I could do something with you but what?" Then I remembered my need for something to love and nurture and I thought about plants in my room.

 Cut off the top of the bottles around the line that is on there (its kinda wibbly wobbly) I used a craft knife but a pen knife may have been better.
 Get your plants.
 make sure their not dead I used alpines much to my mothers disgust.
 Fill your bottles with a third of pebbles or gravel, then a third of compost and then top it off with your plant making sure to break up the bottom slightly with your fingers and flatten it down a little with your fingers. If they are a little dry add water but don't drown em.
 I used an elastic band to put the names back on cos I'm lazy and I'm not going to remember the names LOL or how to look after them.
Finished!! :)
