At the suggestion of The Brit, to promote my Etsy shop, Meggie’s Window, (insert shame
fulless self-promotion here) and connect with other crafty-minded people, I started blogging earlier this year. I had no clue what I was doing, or what to talk about. I didn’t want to make it *all* about my shop. Perusing the Internet (why do we capitalise that word like it’s a real place or something?), and some of the creative people I found on WordPress itself, however, gave me the inspiration I needed.
My first was The Learner Observer. I was looking up terrariums because I wanted to see if there were any special tricks to making one (there are), and came across a picture that grabbed my attention. The photo linked back to a WordPress blog- how fortuitous! I commented on the project, and got a lovely response from Thalita.
And so it began…
It was actually quite a while before I finally made that terrarium, which ended up in a pretty metal birdcage I got for $6 at a Ross department store.
This past weekend, as Thalita was celebrating her 1st anniversary with The Learner Observer, I was creating my second mini-garden for The Brit- his desk at work in front of that nice big window was crying out for plant life! A fitting coincidence since it was because of a terrarium I found her and got the inspiration boost to get started on my own blog.
Special thanks to Thalita ❤ for her, albeit unwitting, inspiration. Happy anniversary to the Learner Observer; and here they are, Thalita, as promised 🙂
And #2- which gave me an opportunity to use some of the cool rocks I have collected across the country
