Just finished bottling and labeling. Maddox's Madd-Ox Insect Repellant made with essential oils. Just like his sister he also was bit by the entrepreneur bug. He debuted his insect repellent last weekend at the farmers market and sold out in the first two and half hours. #wow So here is hoping for another successful weekend.
Here's the (almost) finished product. I made a back-lit shadow box out of a jewelry box from the craft store. Stained the wood, added a few layers of cork inside, and lined it with an LED string light. I still need to cover the cork with a strip of material and make my insect labels. #tarantulahawk#wasp#insect#invertebrate#insectpinning#shadowbox#diy
You are responsible for what you see in your life. Take note because not all of it is real. -Dragonfly
