I was pleased with how it came out, so I tried a birdhouse for my son's scout project:
This made me realize I cannot just make things without a plan. It is functional, but just barely. The birds shunned it for the longest time (I think they only used it after all other possible nest building sites were taken).
However the bedside table I made for the youngest one turned out pretty well.
This was ALOT easier to do and alot more relaxing. I just did a little bit here and there, as I had time and energy.
Since school is about to start again, I think I will stick with small, easy to do projects for a while. My son needs a bedside table for his big bed, H is asking for another stuffed animal, and she needs a simple desk for her room. That should keep me busy for a while.
I hope your summer was fun too!
