This is the wooden crate I demonstrated how to build in my Google + Hangout. I wasn’t prepared enough to have one finished so you could actually SEE what the finished product would look like.
That’s how things go ’round these parts.
The purpose for my crates was to hold Madison’t Christmas countdown gifts but I didn’t get it done in time so we went for the old cardboard box with chocolate behind the doors. She loves those anyway. It’s getting harder to find 24 (inexpensive) gifts for her now that she is a teen. Wes asked me when we were going to stop the 24 gift tradition the other day. Uhm. It’s a tradition so — never! :-)
We just might have to start using Hershey’s kisses for all the gifts. Wonder how many days it would take for that to lose it’s excitement?
But here is my finished crate anyway…four days late. Ha! (Oh well.)
I should look at it this way instead: It’s ready for next year a whole year early. Booyah!
