I stole a few precious moments this morning to curl up with a coffee and scroll through my Google Reader:) It’s raining outside so the kids are happily building a fort in the basement. I love listening to muffled giggles as they discuss who has the best fort design to use. I also hear them talking about how to incorporated the swing into the design. My husband installed some IKEA hand rings in their playroom. The kids love them and are constantly creating new tricks.
They came up with this 3 person swing design the other day. Kaleb is getting to be a master at knot tying, but I’m still not sure about this design! So cute to see them problem solve though. Sorry about the blurry photo, they were having so much fun I could not take a clear picture. You can see the entrance to the fort just behind the kids. Our basement has concrete walls, carpet tile flooring and really low ceilings. Perfect for kids to play in and just be kids! I recently picked up a large green wrestling mat that sits below the “swing”. The kiddos spend hours down there playing and being creative. I love having a space that is just theirs.
Anyways, back to my quiet moment reading. I am inspired by all the creative projects you guys come up with. I just wish there was more time to try all of them out! A few blogs in, and I am confused as to why a picture of myself was staring back at me. It takes me a bit to realize that my blog is being featured on Blue Cricket Design! Seriously, how fun is that! I love Becca’s blog, she has amazingly creative ideas, and I am honored that she would choose to feature my coffee sack art. If you have not already paid Becca’s blog a visit you need to!
