For a long time now Mark and I have been talking about making concrete pots to contain two of my many hobbies; candles and succulents. We had made a few prototypes that weren't anything amazing, but were scattered around the house and garden anyway. Then all of a sudden my sister and her now husband wanted concrete pots for their wedding; so the deadline was set and we gladly accepted the mission. Naturally Mark worked on making the best looking concrete pots around. My husband the perfectionist, made beautiful vessels for me to work with...the only problem is, he still hasn't taught me how to make them, and I don't think he has any plans of making them for me this weekend, thus my creativity is currently on hold.
|I love the combination of smoothness with air bubbles.|
|Propagating succulents-don't start, it's addictive!|
As I sit here gulping down a cup of caffeine in desperation to get the energy to do housework, I'm thinking about being outside in our backyard making things as a family this weekend...and stopping myself from going outside and pottering around right now. Plus, it's Friday, and I'm seriously looking forward to a glass of white wine tonight-which gets me to thinking about making a concrete wine cooler, it would be much harder to knock over after a few too many drinks.
Cheers All, have a great weekend!
