I used both a glue stick and rubber cement on mine. All in all I have to say the rubber cement works better. I glued 2 mag pages together and on some of them I noticed that the glue didn't hold them together. The next time I make them I'm using just rubber cement. The mailer can be a bit smelly from he rubber cement, but it will go away in a day or two.Even thought this was rather labor intensive I will definitely do this again. I mean just think of all the junk mail you can recycling by doing this....humm I wonder if you can use plastic bags to make mailers........ Not to mention by doing this you can customize the size of your packages. I hate having to use a giant mailer for one tiny little thing. There is already a giant pile of mags and junk mail waiting to be neato mailers. I love breathing new life into things.

After I boiled the hell out of it. I added all the sugar and boiled the hell out of it again.
These are my plumerias. They should be blooming by the end of next month. I'm a plant nut there I said it.
Turvy plant. I hope these are the first of many, but we shall see.

In my words its a wicked kewl little book that is self published. You can find a zine out there just for you. Vegan,cooking, and crafting are just a few of the subjects that can be found.

As some people know I love plants and gardening. However, since I had to move from my giant yard in the country I can't really garden. It is soo depressing. So when I saw this topsy turvy planter I was all YESSSSSSSS I can grown stuff. I planted a small tomato plant in it to see if it really works. So far its not looking to bad.
I was cruising around today when I found this super kewl site. It tells you how to make your own drip bottle for your flower. I love flowers and gardening so this was right up my alley. The site is http://www.yougrowgirl.com/garden/dripsystem.php . I am so going to try this.
This is my spider plant. As you can see the neighbors cat loves it.
I will have more plant pictures in a few weeks. I am waiting for everything to start blooming.
