1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 cup of sugar

Terrarium Love
I am always becoming a big fan of gardening right after we visit garden exhibitions - since last weekend I have been thinking about nothing else then terrariums.
I love how much life can be kept in a single jar. I love the idea of keeping a small world, hidden from everything else, close to yourself, and taking care of it.
 My boyfriend bought me some succulents at the garden exhibition and I have been reminding myself since to make them part of my own terrarium once I decide to make one in the future (hopefully this year).

Today ...

Today is a special day! I have gotten my ear pierced!

Since thursday I have been looking everywhere for someone to do it, but unfortunately there are no places open on weekends and I had to wait till the holidays end. But I finally got it! It didn't hurt at all and I am looking forward to try out as many earring variations as possible.
I found some on Pinterest which I like:

Do you have your ears pierced? How many holes do you have?

Artistic "Chevron" Evening

Killing time and Chevron Attempt
and w00t! 100 pageviews!!
I have finally done something with my nails, other then just using one colour, and I think it turned out pretty well.
On the other hand, my DIY Chevron Wall Art is failing. The bias tape didn't work for me, so I will need to to it some other way (or have more patience).
* EDIT *
I did it. I am not made for painting. It only took one permanent marker, 20 minutes and it was done. I can't wait to put it on the wall!

. . . . . . .

There has been a special visitor in our yard yesterday. 
A friend of my sister's has brought her dog along and we have been playing with her. 
Needless to say our cats didn't particularly like to be locked inside on such a lovely day, so of course when the door opened, Murko ran out and got nearly caught. Fortunately, cats are quite fast, and he disappeared for the next 3 hours.
