My spring project

While my book is in editing, I need to occupy myself. I can't work on another story because I don't want to have to put it aside when my editor gets back to me. As such, I usually take a little break and work on other things, as well as read as much as I can of other writers.

So what did I do during this down time? I created a living wall in my living room! How did I do it? I'll tell you.

First I hung up a pegboard and painted it white.

I wanted to make this wall was as sustainable as possible. I wanted to use things I already had (like the peg board, which was just sitting in my garage). Therefore, I decided to save some plastic water bottles from the recycle bin and repurpose them. So, I cut them in half and used a hole punch to put holes in them.

Next, I painted the bottles green, and put strings through the holes. At this point, I moved some of the house plants I already had to the board. Nox was very curious, but he cried in vain because I made sure he could not reach them.

I cut and painted more bottles as well as a 1 x 4 board. Then it was time for a trip to the plant nursery!

    D. Lieber has a wanderlust that would make a butterfly envious. When she isn’t planning her next physical adventure, she’s recklessly jumping from one fictional world to another. Her love of reading led her to earn a Bachelor’s in English from Wright State University.

    Beyond her skeptic and slightly pessimistic mind, Lieber wants to believe. She has been many places—from Canada to England, France to Italy, Germany to Russia—believing that a better world comes from putting a face on “other.” She is a romantic idealist at heart, always fighting to keep her feet on the ground and her head in the clouds.

    Lieber lives in Wisconsin with her husband (John) and cats (Yin and Nox).
