As a keen gardener, I love anything garden related... and I do love to receive gardening books, sets or accessories as gifts! I've been collecting empty pill bottles to store seeds from my annual plants since I started to find great joy in gardening, whether I did that on a balcony or when I've been so blessed to own a huge garden in the country.
This month in Green Craft, you can find my article about turning plastic medicine bottles into chic gardening accessories.
I also made a garden journal and cute plant signs to complete the set.
My card accompanying my work has been published too, even if I was surprised as my writing wasn't perfect- I must admit that got me down a bit, because you know I put much time and energy in always improving my knowledge of English each and every day... but being not my first language, I'm well aware it goes out of the window when I'm very tired or stressed! That was the case last summer, when I was facing problems about our move, my health etc. (Just for fun, I don't call 'laundry sheets' that way, I improperly call them 'washing-machine towels' both in English and Italian :))). But the sadness lasted only a few moments, because I was tremendously proud when I re- read my article, and really loved how it turned out- even doubted I had written it myself! Does this happen to you too?
Now, just waiting for Spring to sow some seeds. Seriously, can't wait... can't wait!
