I am a jack of all trades, but master of none! I'm a preschool teacher who loves everything crafty. I crochet, knit, sew, bake, scrapbook, etc etc etc!

I've only been avidly gardening for about four years. I developed an appreciation for it when a mother of one of my students gave me a bird's nest snake plant. I almost killed the thing but with the help of Google I figured out what I was doing wrong and now still have that first plant that started all this happily living in water. That little snake plant opened the door to my obsession. I'm still learning by trial and error and researching every single plant I come across. I have a bad habit of buying clearance plants off the shelves of Walmart and Home Depot and challenging myself to save them. It's a cheap way to feed my addiction.

A few plants I currently have are three different kinds of snake plants, jade plants, a plethora of succulents, a neon pothos, a mini phaleanopsis orchid, aloe vera, a bromeliad, lucky bamboo, christmas cactus, and a norfolk pine tree. i'm also in the process of rooting some rosemary taken from my best friend's new house.
