DIY Toy Treehouse Project

For a few weeks, my daughter and I have talked about making a tree house for some of her toys.  This weekend we decided to go for it.

Update 1/10/15: I am now selling this same treehouse through my Etsy page.

Total material cost was about $20.

This was a fun project, and I anticipate building additional elements over the next few months.

Christmas Project 2009

For several years, we’ve drawn names to give Christmas gifts with both my family and Keri’s family. This past Christmas, someone from Keri’s family came up with the terrible fantastic idea of creating a surprise handmade gift for “our person”.

I drew Keri’s sister, and after a few weeks of making no progress, Keri suggested that I make her a bird house.  After a little research, I decided to go the route of decorating a birdhouse that I bought at a hobby store nearby.  Here are a few pics of my project in action:

The bad news of the story: I think they want to do hand made gifts again next Christmas.
