Planting A Pineapple. Did y’all know that you can take this and turn it into… This?

Planting A Pineapple

And that this will eventually produce… This? Yes, I’m talking about turning your average, ordinary grocery store pineapple into a tropical showpiece within your home. A plant that is not only impressive but will WOW! Planting a Pineapple 1. 2. 3. In 24 months (sounds better than two years) it will look like this. You will have an actual, large, utterly delicious pineapple in 24-36 months. The thought of growing my own pineapple always makes me smile and giggle just a little bit. Now what am I supposed to do with all of this leftover pineapple? I see something sweet coming soon. While you’re waiting for me to make something yummy with the leftovers, go ahead and plant a pineapple. Be adventurous plant a pineapple.

Holga D - Holga Digtal Camera - Saikat Biswas. The original Holga camera has very few controls, a 2 speed shutter, 2 apertures and very basic focusing ring.

Holga D - Holga Digtal Camera - Saikat Biswas

Holga D is aimed for similar rudimentary controls, but as it's a digital camera and as it has a electronic shutter there are some change in functionalities in order to make it useful. On one side of the top panel there is a big shutter release key, and on the other side a same sized E-Ink display. Surrounding these there are two ring-dials for ISO and shutter speed control. There is a power-key on next to the shutter speed dial. The entire top panel can be removed and reversed for left hand use. On the back panel there is a key to select between 3:2 or square aspect ratio, this is inspired from existing Holga cameras aspect ratio selector and film counter slider.

On the front panel there is a push button for unlocking the lens. At the bottom there is a key to select color and black or white mode. A Sewing Table for Small Spaces. The perfect spot for a part time sewing enthusiast!

I have truly loved the motivation the So You Think You’re Craft competition has given me to tackle projects recently.

A Valentine Project for Little Ones

I have to say, though, that it has been very hard keeping my creations a secret! I have always been horrible about spilling the beans when it comes to things I’m excited about, and my contribution to last week’s Kids Can Do lineup is no exception. The moment the kiddos and I finished the project, I was clamoring to share it here with you! Thank goodness the wait is over, and I can share it with you today! In case you missed my blurb from last week on SYTYC, here it is… If you have children in your life, one thing is certain: come February, you’ll be putting together Valentines for school parties. I absolutely adore a craft project that utilizes things that would otherwise be discarded.
