Fun with Cardboard Boxes

The projects I'm designing require cardboard boxes. Lots and lots of cardboard boxes.

Last night I ventured into the unimproved side of the basement and discovered  six forgotten cardboard boxes (each 5 ft tall) stacked in the corner.  Looking at them, I remember that I couldn't make myself throw them away. They're so big and such good cardboard.  I'll want them some day. 

Today's the day, and I'm so excited about this project I'm tempted to see the boxes as a sign. It's probably just another example of why I'm such a pack rat: you never know what you're going to need later.

Whatever. I've got great big pieces of cardboard to play with, and I can't wait to get started!  It's going to be a great day.

Ooh! Fun! The girls and I have had a great time making bird feeders from old milk cartons this summer. Bubba still goes crazy over what he calls my "non-toy-toys."
