It's no secret that I cannot keep a plant alive. Kids, sure. Plants, not a chance. I love them way too much. I plant cute little succulents in bowls and tubs and all kinds of cute things and BAM, two weeks later, I've loved them to death. Although, surprisingly the thyme I put in a pot by the front door is still alive after 4 weeks and actually thriving.
But, my misadventures in planting haven't stopped Marisol from asking, for weeks now, if she can not only have succulents in her bedroom, but also tea light candles too (of course I'm only allowing the battery operated ones for now). She's ten, and growing up, and is becoming more addicted to Pinterest, and spends a lot of time researching bedroom decor, re-decorating her room, and asking for slightly more grown-up looking items.
So when I was sent the Pottery Cool craft kit I asked her what she wanted to make. We jumped on Pinterest together to take a look at a few bedroom ideas and she decided on a small succulent container so she could put a plant on her desk.
