Hobbit Garden

This took a couple months to plan and collect all the materials and plants, and about a week to build and put it all together. 

The hobbit house is handmade, including the door, chimney, windows, and bird nest.  I also made the fence, gate, and a Shire signpost (not pictured).

A question for anyone who makes and sells crafts:

If I made more of these, either just doors and accessories or complete houses, and put them on etsy, would people buy them? If so, what would be a reasonable price to charge?  I’ve never done this before so i’m clueless about how this works.  I’d really appreciate your advice :)

(I’ve also made a harry potter wand and a couple hand-stenciled hogwarts textbooks for a cosplay, if anyone would be interested in those as well?)

Twin Brazilian street artists Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo, collectively known as Os Gêmeos (previously featured here), just completed this awesomely huge, vibrant and detailed piece covering six towering silos on Granville island in Vancouver, Canada for the Vancouver Biennale. These massive Giants are the brothers’ largest work to date.They spent three months painting the 75-foot-tall industrial towers in their distinctive colorful style, full of smaller hidden characters. A successful Indiegogo fundraising campaign helped the brothers cover the expenses needed to complete this non-profit public art project.

The twins spent the final days adding numerous details to their characters – pockets, stitches, buttons, shoes, fabric patterns, all by using lots of bright colors and by painting more and more signature yellow faces. Using the architecture of the silos, the giants are all kneeling with four of them facing one way, and the other two facing the other way, giving the finished work a full 360 degree identity.

You probably know someone who’s always a step ahead of the game. She can tell, somehow innately, when bad news is coming, or when to take the risk that no one else would touch.
These people are dialed into their “gut instincts,” and are never wrong—almost annoyingly so.
The International Association of Administrative Professionals and OfficeTeam surveyed 3,500 administrative professionals and 1,300 senior managers, and found that 88% make decisions based on gut feelings.
The ability to intuit future problems before they become serious can be an invaluable trait in the workplace. “Any manager will tell you that having an assistant who anticipates his or her needs and offers solutions without being asked is virtually indispensable,” says Robert Hosking, OfficeTeam executive director.
