Remember the Seed and Grow planters I painted on the last day of 30 Days of Creativity? Well, they used to be a very old and forgotten bookshelf  we had in the corner of our backyard not being used. Until this Spring, when we realized we could re-purpose the wood and make planters out of them. It was actually Michael’s idea, and he built them in a sunny afternoon.

Of course, Juancho and Paloma had to help him too.

We planted some tomatoes plants.

I painted them later with some left over paint we had from when we painted the kitchen and bedroom, and they look so much nicer!

I can’t wait to start eating our tomatoes and veggies!

I craft all night and party everyday at these Craft Parties.
