Plant Killer, Kits & Wednesday Stamper

I'm a plant killer. From way back. For some reason I just can't keep plants alive. I've been known to kill a cactus or two. Even when we lived in the desert! How sad is that?! I'm sure you're all lovely plant growers and have massive jungles growing from all the love you give them. But I think I forget, or under/overwater or something. UGH! However, my parents graciously gave us a wonderful toy for Christmas. The AeroGarden. I thought, YES! I can finally grow plants and they won't die! Wishful thinking. We followed the rules, the instructions, the plan. We have 2 out of 7 that are growing profusely. Isn't it sad?! I moved the plants around today (after I took the pics), roots and all to put all the puny plants in the middle. They seem to be standing up straighter, like they now have the courage to grow or something. I'll keep you updated on my plant killing status... (I did hack away at the 2 plants that were growing so profusely, the basils, and hung them up to dry in the window. Won't they be yum for cooking!) The plants are supposed to look like the first pic:


I see a couple of the items I've designed for Altered Pages have made it into kits! I'm so excited! So if you were dying to make something similiar to my Beauty Matchbox or maybe the Altered Book Tags, now you can! If I'm not mistaken, a necklace kit is coming out soon. I'll post a link when it's available. If you create something with these kits, let me know. I wanna see pics!

Today's creations are for Wednesday Stamper's 'BOOKMARKS' theme:
