Earlier this week I talked about my herbs which I have growing indoors and they are doing Great! I planted them back in November so give or take 3 months and you have a good crop to harvest for spicing up your meals! Then I got to thinking about the upcoming holidays and since I am big on homemade gifts…I thought potted herbs are the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or any Birthday! I have recently acquired the Cricut cartridge “Freshly Picked” and haven’t had time to delve into what it can do.
What I really like about this cartridge is it’s all about Gardening…one of my favorite things in the world. So today I took some time and made a few seed packets and little paper signs. This is only a start … I can do so many creative things with this!
I had the herbs growing in the standard black plastic pots so I transplanted them into nicer terra-cotta pots. You can decorate the pots any way you desire, any color and even personalize them with names, dates, etc.
Add a packet of those saved seeds you kept from your garden last year and you have a spectacular homemade gift! You can even include some garden themed chocolates…..Yum! Perfect!!
