What’s a terrarium? It’s a mini ecosystem complete with plants, moss, rocks, soil and more. Building a tiny terrarium is like creating your own little world. There’s a lot of power in mini-gardening. And it’s WAY less work than the real thing.
Add some fresh greenery to your home, or give it as a gift alongside a bottle (or box) of vino. Easy and decorative DIY wine glass terrariums are incredibly stress-free to maintain, love an abundance of sun and are drought tolerant.
If you’ve always wanted to know how to go about creating your very own terrarium, this is the place to start.
Includes all materials:
high quality vessel
Coloured rocks/pebbles and other decor
terraring tools (chopstick and spoon)

The countdown is on to the last day of Saskatoon Fringe 2017 on August 14. Broadway has come alive over the past week and a half with strong, female performances. And fried food. Lots of fried food.
Here are the highlights from the shows we checked out this week:
Saskatoon Fringe 2017 Indoor Theatre
Windy Wynazz is… Rich and Famous ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
If Liza Minnelli, Mr. Rogers, Kesha and Andy Dick managed to raise a human together… you’d have Windy.
Before the show started Wynazz sat next to me and asked if she looked okay, or if she needed darker lipstick. Her face was caked in makeup with false eyelashes on both her top and bottom lids and a nude lip. I said no, you look like you’re channeling Liza Minnelli. Her incessant need for audience approval continued throughout the show.
Windy takes the audience on an augmented trip through her life from a bullied Jewish kid to an insecure druggie rockstar wannabe with a love affair for the transformational power of wigs. She sells her soul to the devil and doesn’t get what she wants most – fame. It’s outlandish while remaining relateable.
If you haven’t picked up on it yet, Windy is nuts. She gave me two of her shoes and told me to talk to Liza and “her mother”. When I obliged she told me to shut up because it was her show.
I laughed so hard my face still hurts, but I felt wrong about it at times. Especially when she fed Chris blueberries and gave him a blindfolded lap dance.
The Merkin Sisters ⭐⭐⭐
What’s up with the hair obsession?
Maybe the Stephanie Morin-Robert and Ingrid Hansen were offering a bizarre commentary on the avant-garde visual art that takes samples and puts them on display. They demonstrated how unconventional hair can be.
The ladies start the show in bathing suits and swim caps, interrupting the audience by walking through different rows and tapping people in tune with the music.
Once on stage, they use an old sweater to depict the birth of a white glove baby. The white glove then helps them pluck hair from each other and audience members. The collection then becomes the magic concoction that transforms them into giant bouncing hair balls.
I’m pretty sure a few people walked out. But that didn’t stop the rest of us from trying to figure out what the whole show was about.
A bizarrely hilHAIRious show with the randomness of Robot Chicken.
-relied on mom and her daughter, Coco from the audience.
An Australian contortionist, hoola hooper, and a balancing act who combines all three atop a German wheel. Her message: “Seriously it’s 2017 – we need to close the gender pay gap. The streets are the only place where we’re treated as equals.”

Marc Rousseau Comics “A Miserable Guide to Saskatoon”
A post shared by Marc Rousseau (@marcrousseaucomics) on
Rousseau’s comic preview is probably all you’ll get to see since all of his books have been selling out. From the first page you’ll be nodding in agreement and chuckling at his observations on the quirks of Saskatoon.
