I've Got An Itch

No not there. It's more of a bug, I guess. No not there either. I've had this bug up my butt. A creative bug. I know photography is supposed to be creative, but it's not when you just take photos of houses. There are times when I have someone who wants more creative shots, but for the most part it's all straight forward stuff. Lately I've been wanting to quit my job and go the farmers market craft route. Yeah, real profitable and realistic, but at least I can do some crafts for myself right.

So I started at the bane of Mario's existence...a bunch of glass jars that I refuse to throw out. A lot of them are from jam, jelly, spaghetti sauce, and a bunch of jars from my aunt at Christmas. She gives a bunch of pre-made soup mixes that you just add the liquids to. They're pretty cool, but I end up with all these jars that I don't know what to do with. Yet, I'm not throwing them out. Some need to go back to my sister's in laws, if I want to get more jam from them. Sometimes I store left overs in them. However most of the time they've been sitting there mocking Mario. It's funny as much as he hates seeing them, he still doesn't throw them out either.

Actually, once I figured out what I was going to do with them, he was pretty into it. He even asked if we could give one to his friends as a house warming present...he's pretty cute sometimes.

Anyway, I started by etching in the glass...

Then I put some rocks in the bottom. Filled it with dirt and threw a succulent in it. It's pretty stinking cute if I do say so myself and finally I'm using all those jars!

Now on to my second project with the jars...
