Created before The Hypertufa Gardener, I have a YouTube Channel called Kim’s Gardens.
I have filmed a lot of making and creating hypertufa pots and planters, but there are also cooking and recipes and a few films of family too! Check those out too!
I have made quite a few videos on making hypertufa planters, bowls, hanging pots, etc. I have many videos about my draped hypertufa planters there also, including the ones here on the posts.
I have also made some videos for the recipes and crafts and activities from my other posts, so feel free to explore and find something you like. I try to keep the videos fairly short so that you can watch them quickly since we are all on the run these days.
Here are a couple of links . Click and be directed to the video. ( I was experimenting at getting really creative. Or maybe it was two glasses of wine that evening.)

My Equipment for Making my Videos.
Just in case you are curious about my frugal equipment
You know I am frugal and that stays the same even when I am making photos for my blog. Granted, one day I may decide to upgrade to a bigger and better camera. But for now, this is what I use.
My phone camera
I have the LG G6 and I set it for the highest resolution 2560 x 1440 and video size 1920×1080.
You must always take your photos and especially the videos with the phone held horizontally, not vertically. Trust me.
My other camera.
Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Black) Bundle w/Canon EF-M 15-45mm is STM & Tamron 70-300mm Di LD Lenses + Auto (EF/EF-S to EF-M) Mount Adapter + Basic Camera Kit
It is a Canon EOS M50 and this works for photos and videos.
I recently got a tripod at a garage sale $5 (after some complaints about how unsteady I was, and it did help a lot).
So for my next gift to myself, I got a tripod too.
Software, the biggest expense
Sony Vegas Pro Suite [Download]
My son was so good to me and got this for me. He used it too for his channel on YouTube, so he was able to teach me too. He is a gamer. It is a detailed program and has so much capability, more than I have discovered, I know. But I am learning day by day.
Acer G226HQL Bbd 21.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) Widescreen Display
I have dual monitors on my computer set up so that I can listen/read/make changes while looking at two screens instead of toggling between tabs. ( I confess that I do have many tabs open anyway…on both.) I know my son had a different graphics card in my computer, but most have a dual port anyway if you would like to hook up two monitors.
