Duration - 1/5
Let's keep this quick, shall we? I've got a lot of work to be doing and not a hell of a lot of time to be doing it in; exams are this week and most of my time is currently taken up with sitting in the corner of my room rocking back and forth. To distract myself from impending doom for a little bit, I thought I'd show you something pretty I made:
|Yup, I wrote all those textbooks.|
|Choose your poison.|
|If you don't have any on hand, substitute with uncut cocaine.|
|Wet ones are too floppy.|
The flower I've used was from the bunch of cheap Lidl roses I got Fiona for our anniversary (ever the classy bird, me) and she's actually posted a little tutorial on her blog on how to dry the flowers to preserve them. The gist is pretty simple though, so I'll boil it down for you here; take some pretty flowers -
- hang them upside down -
|*Mission Impossible theme*|
|"How's it...hanging? *pfft*"|
- and lo and behold, many a hyphen later you have yourself a crunchy version of your flowers.
|Spares can be bundled into a lovely bouquet.|
All that's left to do is make sure your bottle is devoid of booze, mash all of the items together and voila, you've got yourself a lovely window ledge/coffee table/family crypt ornament for your home. You can tell people it represents the strength of your love persevering against the sands of time and your own latent alcoholism. Or that it's a pretty flower in a rum bottle; up to you.
I'll be back up to full steam as of next week once exams are out of the way. We might even be increasing the posting schedule to twice a week, so prepare yourselves for a summer of epicness and intrigue! Until then, wish me luck for the rest of these pissing exams.
