Making things makes me happy. Every weekend I try to spend a little time messing around, doing whatever it is that I want to do. It washes away the stresses of a busy week.
A while back, I found this antique aquarium for a quarter. It has a crack in it which no longer allows it to hold water. The kids and I started getting antsy for spring. We went to a local nursery and bought $6 worth of plants. Then we scavenged a little moss from the woods. Easy peasy. Our own indoor spring. Go make one! It's fun and I promise you'll love it. There's nothing like creating something that offers up immediate gratification and takes very little time and money to achieve the effect.
