Finally got around to constructing it although its not finished yet. Let me know what you think.
We obviously need a front but then I couldn't take pictures.
Here is the inside without the roof on.
Its located at the base of a tree that leans toward the Northeast. After our first try at building at this site, a thunderstorm with heavy rain and large gusts of wind blew through and we thought it was ruined. Nope. Completely intact and only one side was a little damp.

I read through those scrapbooking books from the library and one of them had an interesting idea for paper storage. I didn't think much more about it after that. Well, I was yard saleing during our community yard sales and ended up finding the materials I needed, as well as a brand new scrapbook for $5. Seems like someone is trying to tell me something ;)
I've decided it will take me a while to gather all the supplies needed for scrapbooking so I will be waiting until winter to start. Unless it snows and I can go cross country skiing what else am I going to do?!
Here's a picture of my new scrapbooking storage unit.
Did I mention that I got all the materials except the cable ties ($1) for free?
There are more wire squares and I only have 3 connectors left but I found the connectors online for $0.20 a piece.
I'm going to make some storage units for the kids because they really need them, there are no closets in their rooms. I really scored with this find as the wire cube units (6 cubes) sell for $35 a set.

This little elephant is so cute and one of many free Amigurumi crochet patterns here. Noelle is in love with them and I guess I know what my next few projects will be :)
I also like these ones:
Here are some more patterns for amigurumi. I guess this little guy is my first project for my little dog lover.

I love the internet! With a few clicks I can find great crochet patterns. For free! How great it that? Crochet Pattern Central is my new favorite site! I also like to recycle whenever I can and found out about My Recycled Bags. I also found video tutorials for crochet on NexStitch if you want to learn how. Three gems that I thought I'd share just in case you didn't already know about them ;)

I really like the way it turned out. All my other totes always fell over when I was trying to crochet or knit and working out of a gift bag wasn't very lasting.
The pattern is from the book Crochet with Bits and Pieces that I found at our library. I also made Noelle a drawstring purse for Easter out of this book.
