Growing Tomatoes

Summer has passed, but you don’t have to give up on your fresh tomatoes on the vine there is a way that you can keep them throughout the long winter days!  The plants that harvest small, cherry- or grape-sized tomatoes in large quantities usually do better indoors than larger “slicing” selections. At my  Etsy shop  Flymeawaycreations you can find a great and unique way to start your own tomato plant indoors!   I love having fresh tomatoes right in the kitchen that you can enjoy in so  many different recipes. This year I have three plants growing indoors on my kitchen window sill and they are thriving!  The planter is a kit to help anyone start their own tomato garden. After the plant starts blooming and about 14-16” tall it might be best to replant into a larger container.

When you begin your tomato plant, you will plant the seeds in a starter soil mix, about 1/4 inches deep. To maintain the plant water by keeping the soil moist but not soggy, and keep it in a warm area, therefore in 5-10 days the seeds should germinate. While growing any plant indoors, you may have to experiment with location and lighting to get the best results.  Nevertheless with a little time and care, soon you should be able to have your fresh off the vine tomatoes!

Give yourself to the Dark Side

That’s right… Go to the Dark side!

In the pantheon of movie villains, few figures are as daunting or unforgettable as Darth Vader.  I remember as a child watching Star Wars with my dad and loving the plots and twists of each movie. Today, I still enjoy watching the movies with my hubby and kids.  Many people who watch the Star Wars movies pick a side “Light” or “Dark”, for me, it has always been the Dark side.  Darth Vader was impressive as he presented terror when he walked into a room , he always seemed confident and thought he was unstoppable.

I am always trying to think about what the next unique planter could be in my shop, so I wanted to create an impressive and social spotlight for any room.  That is when I said; why not take one of my favorite “Dark” characters and create him into a one of a kind planter!

My inspired 3D printed Darth Vader is printed with PLA plastic and works perfect with small succulents or air plants. The size of the planter fits perfect on a small desk in an office or a window sill! You can check out the planter by visiting the shop at www.flymeawaycreations.com

Planting with Alligators

Growing up I was fascinated with a wide array of animals and at one time thought about being a Zoologist, but, my creativity and ideas directed me into a different direction, towards my business. I love to design or recreate an item to sell in the shop that has a meaning behind it. Take for instance, the Alligator planter which is one of my favorite planters that I have listed on my Etsy shop. The planter is made from plastic and yes you might be able to find it in the toy isle of a store, but I didn’t see the alligator as a toy for one of my children to play with, I saw it as a cool unique planter to showcase one of my air plants.  I had so many compliments  for the planter I started creating them to sell at my shop. After listing it within a few days it sold!  You can find the golden alligator planter at the shop by following the link

Printing For Flymeawaycreations

3D printing is evolving almost by the day, and, as this technology continues to enter more widely and deeply across industrial, and consumer worlds, as the years go on this

 

is only set to increase. The shop first started with one 3D printer and from growing with ideas of new objects to print we just added another printer to keep up with our inventory!

3D Printing is a method for making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model on a computer, typically by laying down many successive thin layers of a plastic (ABA or PLA). So, it brings an idea that was created on the computer into its physical form! The shop has several 3D printed planters created from designs that were inspired by nature or a favorite character from their childhood memories. You can check out all the 3D printed planters at the shop by following the link

Creating the planters is the fun part, as the design leaves the digital world and starts to print it can be fascinating to watch. You can check out many videos on our Facebook page Flymeawaycreations or our Instagram page @flymeawaycreations

Leo the Lion

Looking up at the night sky you might can recognize a few of the constellations.  Leo is a highly recognizable constellation, as it is one of the few  that resemble its name. It is fairly easy to find because the “pointer stars” of the Big Dipper point to Leo. As for the zodiac meaning Leo’s are dramatic, creative, self-confident, dominant and extremely difficult to resist. They are able to achieve anything they want to in any area of life they commit to. There is a specific strength to a Leo which refers to as  “king of the jungle” status making them center of attention and warmhearted.

The newest planter that has arrived at Flymeawaycreations on Etsy is a Lion planter, which is painted a pop of gold and created to hold any small succulent plant, air plants, or a small flower. I am a Leo and the zodiac description actually pin points me and my personally! I wanted to recreate a planter that would represent the strong, cheerful, warmhearted, and creative person that a Leo’s represent!  You can find the planter by following the link below:
