For the love of doing it yourself

(and for the love of a good terrarium)
I love a good terrarium
I love to learn. To try something new. To figure it out. Thus, I'm a lover of doing it yourself, or, DIY. If you're a regular to my blog, you know that about me. It's the love of learning that drives me. It's in my creativity, using emotions and a little bit of intuitive tapping into bits and pieces, that drives me to create. To make. To grow.

So I have to tell you I love this podcast, Destination DIY, about other people who like to get things done themselves, too. And if you're in Portland? Lucky you: they're hosting a salon (oh how I love a salon!) this Friday night with live demonstrations and interviews about how to make radio, how to make bacon, and how to make a terrarium. TERRARIUM. Yes, a terrarium. And I believe it will even be offered up for a silent auction to help raise funds for the show. There's stop-motion animation, music and should be an all around good time.

You should go!

Making a little world can be an act of exponential proportions!
And bacon is nummy.
