Start with about 3/4 inch sand.
Add just enough water to make the sand moist.
Pat down the sand level.
Add a layer of rocks. (We used shiny rocks collected at the beach)
Then a layer of dirt.
Plant small cute little plants. Succulents are my choice.
I wanted to remember 2011. Finding the best way was the question. I take a bunch of pictures, but not a ton of my personal life. When it comes to keeping my life inorder, and documenting my iPhone gets all the credit. Between Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, I had happy-snappy pictures to boot; so I printed them. I printed 183 pictures off my phone, memories out the ears! Everything from a new pair of shoes, to packing to to go Italy, and everything in between.
I used the Walgreens iPhone app to easily order my prints (no, I do not recommend printing anything other then phone pictures at Walgreens.), and got these Moleskines.
I just pasted the pictures in the Moleskine, one for last winter/spring, one for summer, and one for fall/this winter, and wrote short quirky captions.
A cheater’s scrapbook.
“Silence your body to listen to words.
Silence your tongue to listen to your heart beating.
Silence your heart to listen to your sprit.
Silence your sprit to listen to His sprit”.
