From jtaibleson: "This is my first try at learning to do surface embroidery. It's not as good as digging in the dirt, but it's a good way to enjoy the beauty of plants in yucky weather!"

From Nanth333: "What child has not held a sunny yellow buttercup under their chin to test their fondness for butter? This unbreakable art pottery is made of my handmade paper with actual buttercups in the pulp and used as embellishment. Several coats of protective finish allow for cleaning witha damp cloth. "
