Hubby's Bench

Here's a bench Hubby created for a Christmas present for my brother. He used simple scrap 2x4's, wood stain, scrap fabric, and scrap foam for the cushion.
I couldn't get a really good picture for it as it is already at home in my brother's closet. But I assure you it turned out beautifully and nice and sturdy.
now onto the next project!

a Baby Garden

We've decided to grow a few things this year. We both love gardening, but weren't sure when we were going to be able to start. Well I guess you make it work if it is important to you.We followed this tutorial on how to make newspaper starter pots at the best price... free! Plus you can plant the whole thing when you are ready because the newspaper biodegrades very quickly. All you need is water, some newspapers, and a 15 ounce can.

So far our little garden has cost us 80 cents for the seeds and $3.50 for the potting mix which we still have plenty left to use for the big pots we'll use later. We're big spenders, I know.
