It is simply beautiful. It came carefully packed as I thought I surely would find something damaged. I was pleasantly surprised it was all in tact. I have it sitting on my desk at work and it's definitely a talked about piece with everyone who sees it.

How it all began...

Right after we moved into our first home I dug right into setting up my backyard garden. I purchased a plethora of expensive specialty mail order plants, garden tools, topsoil and set out to have a gorgeous bloom-filled terrain by the end of Spring. Unfortunately I had very little experience and soon discovered caring for a garden was a lot of work and planning, the latter I had failed at miserably. Many of the plants didn't make it and I ended the Summer feeling defeated and discouraged. When we moved into our current home my gardening challenges were amplified by the very shady location of my new space. I noticed that no matter how many shade-loving species I tried just about the only thing that really flourished was a carpet of green moss that I was previously trying to cover up. At first I was less than thrilled, but eventually I learned to love that die hard plant more than any other. At this point an old mason jar seemed like an appropriate home for this newly discovered plant and my very first terrarium was born.

Over the next few years I perfected my technique and design and have since blossomed into a full blown terrarium enthusiast. Finally, a plant that was practically fool proof!

My work space/studio has also evolved over time from originally taking over my entire living room to now having a designated area for working and storage.

Primarily I still do everything myself after 8 years in business from shopping for supplies to creating, constructing, and packing. I also must thank my very helpful husband and daughter for supporting me in my endeavors.

    I love anything miniature, from tiny plants to tiny critters. Spending time in nature enjoying the little things most people pass by is when I am most happy.

    Some of my favorite passtimes are realistic drawing, painting, and making terrariums. I enjoy helping my mom create and ship terrariums.

    Nature is where I feel at home and beg incessantly to be let out to which I take my time actually going out so as not to seem desperate. I also enjoy small critters such as bugs and plants such as grass, preferably in my belly.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

Terrariums are packaged with great care keeping safety in mind. Because of that reason, gift wrapping is not an option. However, a personalized gift card is available upon request and is free of charge.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders are non-refundable and may take longer to process. If a custom order is cancelled there will be a fee to cover the cost of materials.

If your package is returned to the sender...

If your package is returned due to an incomplete or undeliverable address you will have the option of a replacement (with additional shipping fees) or a refund in full (minus the shipping fees).

Wholesale availability

I do not work on consignment or wholesale at this time. However a discount may be offered on large quantities ordered upfront. Contact me for details.

How are terrariums packaged and shipped?

Terrariums are packaged with great care. Packing material is used both inside and outside the jar so that the contents are not jumbled around during shipping. Any terrarium containing live plants should be unpacked immediately after arrival. Plants cannot survive long periods of time inside the box or with packing material covering them. If you need to keep the terrarium in the box then place it in the refrigerator until needed. This will keep the plant fresh (simulating winter conditions) and green. Remember to remove the packing material prior to storage.
