I'm not gonna lie, I'm feeling pretty smug right now. Finally a cool repurposing idea that's NOT "Pinterest-inspired", that I came up with all by myself! My brilliant idea was to turn a kids pup tent (pup tent? pop tent?) into a sandbox. You see, we have a fenced-in pool and lots of concrete in our back yard, so I wanted to spruce things up for baby #3 - a water table, a basketball hoop, maybe a slide or a playhouse, and now a sandbox. …

This weekend I thought I’d share some different “container” ideas for square foot gardening. I have my SFGs in 2 4 foot by 4 foot patio planters . They were made using plywood (with a few holes for drainage) and 2x6s for the edges. The planters sit on top of my brick patio. An idea from Lorri (who has a very handy husband!)… My husband and I started trying out the square gardening last year. It was awesome! Our okra grew to 12 and 1/2 …

Putting it all Together (Eventually) July 22, 2013 This summer I’m filling a fairly large, 10x18, not astronomical, space with mostly recycled material and a bit of good ol’ garbage. The purpose is pretty straightforward: to present the viewer with another view of the recycled materials and garbage collected by one guy, me, from their town. I’m building a playground, complete with child, hoping to inspire a contemplation of the future …

Well,unless that body of water is a bath… Swimming is by far my favorite activity,my frisbee is a close second. The best,of course,is being able to combine the two! But since there’s not a lake within walking distance and my mom seems to have an aversion to being confined in a vehicle with …

July 11,2013 Most children like splashing around in water. My dad would take us swimming often as we grew up.He would drive for hours to take us to a lake or a spring creek. I did not realize then how much time he was really setting aside for us. He loved spending time with his two daughters. He would grill out hamburgers or lie on the shore taking a nap while we played. I love the memories of walking with him along the creek or sandy …
