Hi Friends! I am so happy and proud to say that I have made my first video! I’m a little scared too! Yikes! It isn’t easy putting yourself out there for everyone to see.
I made the video about a month ago and it took me a while to upload it. My daughter Maya, who is home from her first year of college (whoop! whoop!) gave me an editing lesson and I see that I have so much to learn! She did a wonderful job. Thanks Maya!! Now I just have to practice.
There is so much to learn! I would like to say that I have such an appreciation for all the people that take the time to make videos. Anyone that takes the time and effort to be creative with a video, teach something, and entertain us has my respect!! This is not easy and there is so much to it.
My video is simple and I think they will be that way for a while, lol! It will be interesting to look back in a year and see how I have grown and how things have improved. I thought blogging and the technical aspects of blogging were hard! It’s all hard, so I must say that you have to love it.
I am enjoying the journey and I love exploring new and exciting ways to express my creativity.
In the video, I show you how to make a succulent arrangement and I use sand and aquarium gravel. It turned out really pretty and I have it on a table on my deck. Here is a list of materials that you will need:
To make the arrangement, I placed activated charcoal in the bottom of my container. Then, I placed the soil on top leaving room to plant my succulents. I played around the arrangement of succulents until I liked what I saw.
Next, I put more soil around the plants. After I was sure I liked the arrangement and had enough soil, I brushed the soil off of the leaves of the plants.
It was time to place the sand on top of the soil. I put white sand on top of the soil. Lastly, I put black aquarium gravel in the places that I wanted gravel. It turned out really pretty and it is doing quite well.
Water your arrangement once every two weeks. I purchased a soil moisture meter from Lowe’s for about $10.00. You don’t have to have a moisture meter; I just thought it would be helpful for me to have one. I have a lot of plants in my house and I am really starting to take an interest in succulents.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this blog post about making a succulent arrangement and I hope you will watch and enjoy the video!
