Garden Markers

Sigh....so I have finally come to the realization that until school is out, sports schedules slow down, graduation parties end, travelling is done....I may be posting a little less often. But that's life, huh? So for now, I'm accepting that I'll just have to be satisfied with the infrequent sharing of my creative projects! I hope you can bear with me. I do have a few (I think) very cool tricks up my sleeve for future craft projects!

Anyway. Here is a little preview of what I've been working on lately. The weather here has finally settled down, so I recently started planting my garden. I was very excited to get it going, since last year's attempt at a garden was a total disaster. Let's just say the weeds got completely, totally a little out of control!

So far, I have planted cucumber, zucchini, cilantro, tomatoes, green peppers and jalapenos. The tomatoes and peppers I bought already sprouting. The cucumber, zucchini and cilantro I started from seed. So to help remember which is which until they start growing (and just because I thought it was a cute idea!) I made these little markers.

This was literally a 1-minute craft project...wooden skewer + wine cork + Sharpie marker. How much easier could it be?! And right now a 1-minute project fits perfectly in my schedule! 

Hope you are all having a GREAT spring and I'd love to see your garden progress too!
