Thanks, Domino!

If you've been wondering why I've been hording glass containers and walking around covered in dirt for the past month, this is why...

I've been planting up specimens for my terrarium tutorial on dominomag.com. There ya go, mystery solved!

My gosh I love making these things. They're quick, easy, cheap, low maintenance, sweet, interesting; all things I never knew could coexist together. Please head on over and let me know what you think!

And here's a big thank you, thank you, thank you to the wonderful Cathy Halley for taking a chance on a young whippersnapper like me!

  2. I don't know what planted the idea of terrariums in your little head, but I can remember your obsession starting in elementary school. Look how far you've come... all official and published, but still covered in dirt!

  16. Just wanted to add my thanks and also a very clueless question about charcoal. I see on the photo that they are quite small, is this something I can get at a garden supply store?

  17. Hi Abby, I'm so happy you're interested in making some! I buy my charcoal at a pet supply store in the aquarium section. It's sometimes called activated carbon, too. Good luck!

  20. where did you find those larger jars? i'm looking to make some of these as set pieces, and am lost on where to find some great, inexpensive glass jars.

  21. I love them! Now that domino is down, I can't get to the tutorial.. do you have another link to it? I just found two cheese plates at the salvation army that will be perfect for terrariums, but I'm not sure where to start.
