Rocks In My Head...

That's what I have for getting myself into this project. I am having lots of fun, but it is more work than I thought it would be.

This morning I went out to the back yard with a sifter. Usually I am trying to make the dirt finer and I throw out what is left in the sifter...

This time, I kept what was in the sifter and threw out the smaller dirt and stones.

I had fun finding rocks that still looked like rocks but were small enough to fit in the little boxes.

The stones had to be picked up and placed in the compartments with tweezers.  That's how small they were!

I do like how the boxes turned out though.  They look pretty much like the real ones.

Of course, once I started putting things in place, the Terrible Two plus One showed up to "help". 

They didn't stop with the suggestions until I pulled them out and locked them in the workroom.  I told them to clean it up... Yea.. Sure... That's going to happen...
I went in and found stuff to make a basket that Amare has in the corner by the door. 

In case you hadn't guessed, it's brown and white...It is pretty big, so I think that I had better get started... NOW!

I am going back to work... My fingers are going to be sore when I finish this one!

Back to the grindstone.  See you tomorrow.

The rocks and mini collectors box is such a cool idea.
