When I'm under stress or if I feel overwhelmed, I create. It releases tension for me. Especially if I'm building things that require manual labor.
I have several projects going right now.. :)
project #1: kids' playhouse
Our natural playscape isn't coming along the way I'd envisioned it. I'm not following very many of my 10 Ideas for a DIY Playscape. We don't plan on being in this house very long and it doesn't make sense to tear up the weedy grass to plant my dream garden or build a small hill, or install a rock monolith. So, like everyone else, we make do with what we have; and improve as we are able.
But we can build a playhouse and take it with us when we leave!
