I share an office with 9 other people at uni. I really like our office, the people and the space. It has a good vibe. I’ve moved into my office space, quite extensively (I’ll show you pictures another day). I like my space to be mine and I like there to be a little colour as well.
One of the things I like the most is to have plants inside. Those who know me from my days at Griffith University would know, that I arrive with half a garden nursery. I really enjoy the green colours and the little maintenance the plants need. Unfortunately our little office space at JCU is quite humid, has ants, roaches and a generally unfortunate indoor climate. Someone has tried to live up the space with green branches in water, but they are growing white spores underneath the leaves, which fly around the room. I’m not really sure they are safe to breathe…
We haven’t really agreed if the branches are to move out entirely yet. So far they are being washed on a regular basis. I’ve decided that they are not living on my desk. With the aircon, this is probably futile. One thing’s for sure, I’m not introducing new species.
Except for this one. I found it on someones blog about three months ago. I thought I’d book-marked the page, but I didn’t. I cannot take credit for the idea, but I did redo it from memory. It is my secret little project from the other day and I think I might just be on track with something. Is there room for development? Absolutely! But it is a start.
The basic idea is to make a cactus. It’s real easy, just a couple of tubes:
After filling them with wadding, I stuck them in with toothpicks. Easy peasy
Then I started decorating. Today I did one type of flowers, but I”m thinking butterflies, beetles, different flowers and whatever.
And for now I’m sticking them in with pins
What do you think?
And have you noticed the pictures! New editing program! Freeware! Awesome!
