AEDM 13 Day 26 and a summer project

It was a long weekend in Buenos Aires and with only one week to go for Art Every Day Month and a month to go in the year, it was a great moment to plan the summer and to start setting the intentions for 2014.

This will be our summer project: the garden.
We will redesign the landscape, taking some old shrubs off, changing lights, repainting walls and adding a little reading, lounging space with cute little details.

I started by prepping three bottles we had in different colours and taking the labels off. Two ofthem have nice patterns on tehm. Any ideas what I can do with them? Suggestions welcomed!

Since 2008 I have been choosing a word as compass for the year. It took me a while to understand that only my true words worked. Not those chosen because "everybody else" did. The most powerful so far has been 2010´s LISTEN. And for 2014? We are making a list. There is one that has caught my attention lately. I want to see how that relationship develops.

Here´s my crafty working table on Nov 25th:

November has really flown (mind you, 2013 has been pretty speedy on the whole). Another great LO Paula.

Would you lose the pattern on the bottles if you cut the tops off? If they were cut at different heights you could use them as a candle holder on the patio table - they look good clustered together like you have them in the photo and I think they could look good with candles in.

Great layout, and such a cute picture .... Cutting the tops of the bottles and using them as candleholders is a great idea, I agree with misteejay....

You've got some nice projects going. I'll bet you will get a lot of enjoyment from your new garden.

You have such neat ideas provided for getting ready for the summer and for 2014. For the three bottles maybe colored sand in the clear bottle and for the others you could put fresh flowers in them. That is if you are using them outside. I also love vocabulary as well and choosing one word for the year is great! Thanks so much for sharing!
