Make Your Own Garden Markers

Our family has had a few different gardens over the past couple of years and, although we missed last season with home renovation at planting time, we are ready to plant again. A great way to remember what you planted are garden markers. Most plants come with their own plastic markers, but it is much more fun and festive to make your own.

Wooden fairy wands from a craft store are inexpensive and have enough room for little hands to write the veggie of choice. The wands pictured were painted with chalkboard paint so that they could be used again next season.

Another possibility is decorated rocks. Find rocks large and smooth enough to write your veggie’s name. Use either a paint pen or a small brush and acrylic paint to decorate.

What do you use for markers?

A Moment of Gratitude

I know we just came through the season of thankfulness, but gratitude is something we should never stop feeling. A grateful heart is amazing for creating a feeling of peace in a busy world.

My suggestion for our first day is to take just 5 minutes and write down, or record on your phone, or simply share with a friend, 3 things you are grateful for. If you record them in some way, you can come back to them in a particularly difficult time and remind yourself of the wonderful things in your life and you will feel better in no time.

What will you record today? Oh, and do it again tomorrow too! Share with us on Facebook!
