... a base-of-the-tree treehouse just for Annabel, so "she doesn't have to climb up to the big one".
...a "skibike" in progress. (He's got some time before the snow flies to work out the kinks.)
...and of course, paint and pen on anything and everything.
They're my very favorite kind of handmade, these things all over our house created by little hands and big imaginations. With a lot of freedom and time, a little bit of guidance and help with tools when it's requested or needed, they dream and make and problem solve and start it all over again with each project. With no hard and fast rules about what can be used where, there's no saying that plaster repair washers can't be art or that string and duct tape can't hold a bike seat to a piece of wood. And if it doesn't? Well, they try something else.
They're the creations I trip on, and the inventions that inspire me. And just the very things I'm thinking about this Monday morning as I start my week. Anything is possible. (I just might need more string.)
