Spaceship Project

Project day! Project Day! Project Day! I love Project day!  A chance to sink myself into something creative without feeling guilty about all the other chores I’m not getting done.  I know some of you hear the word “project” and begin to cringe at the thought of being creative.  I on the other hand go into dreamland at the thought of working on a project.  This past week I planned, prepared and created with my sons Tiger Scout Den.  Each scout needed to make a space themed centrepiece to use at the upcoming banquet.  I was thrilled to help out with such a project.  They turned out pretty good if I do say so myself!
