DIY Terrarium Instructable

Terrarium
Here is a beautiful terrarium with nicely written instructions. I’d love to have this little glass garden hanging in my home! It’s assembled with low-maintenance plants that need very little water. I love having something living and green in my house when it’s cold and snowy outside!

Check out the Instructables page and learn how to make your own terrarium. This is definitely on my list of things to try!

LEGO Compatible NFL Minifigures

drew brees minifigurepeyton manning minifigureI’m not a huge NFL fan, but I do love LEGOs, and there are a couple of teams and players I love to cheer for. How cute are these NFL football minifigures?

My favorites are Peyton Manning (Denver Broncos) and Drew Brees (New Orleans Saints). These little guys are buildable, so you can put them together with LEGOs and other plastic building bricks. Also, they’re bendy, and their helmets are removable. So you can play and pose them for on- or off-field scenes.

The figures are kind of like 3-dimensional player cards. Each one comes with a football, a helmet with a removable face mask, water bottle, and stand. You can get your favorite mini-player at OYO for about $12.99.
