How to create a sunken trampoline - little green fingers

How to create a sunken trampoline - little green fingers
I think a sunken trampoline has to be my favourite family garden feature. It's a simple enough idea but solves so many headaches. It's safer, less intrusive and popular with everyone. I have sunken a couple myself. Well, to be more accurate, I've sunken the same one twice (note to self - decide where to put the thing and don't change your mind after 12 months). And I have also designed several gardens with sunken trampolines, so I now consider myself, if not an expert, certainly au fait with the ups and downs (no pun intended). So what do you do...? First, measure up - I would say buy a relatively large trampoline (ours is 14') but make sure that it won't dominate the garden. And that's it, except to say, sunken trampolines might be safer, but not so safe that you shouldn't supervise very carefully. Oh and if you want to see a couple of films about putting in sunken trampoines and how to maintain them, check these out below:

Drink Can Tinwork Tinwork Embossed tinwork is sometimes used to decorate rustic style photo or mirror frames, or just to make decorative items such as Christmas tree decorations.

DIY - Single Use Antibiotic Packs The ongoing trend in the consumer market of providing small, ready-to-go, individual size packages of consumables has been a win-win for the lightweight and ultralight backpacking communities. Always looking to shave a few extra ounces or grams off of our overall pack weight, these individual servings are the perfect fit for trail snacks, drinks, condiments - you name it. However, these nicely packaged individual servings can come at a premium. They can often be pricy or difficult to find without going online and ordering in bulk +shipping. That's when the creative types among us come up with ingenious solutions that lets us make our own alternatives using things we usually have lying around.

How-To - Dirt Cheap Wall-Sized Whiteboards - chrismetcalf.net __Update3:__ Somewhere between Wordpress, TextMate, and the Markdown plugin, my post got corrupted and ended up in mixed HTML/Markdown. It should be fixed now. Updated Update: FYI… As the weather gets hotter and more humid here in Seattle, my board has started to noticeably warp and it doesn’t lean nicely on my wall anymore. This obviously won’t be a problem if you mount the board directly to the wall, but if you want a freestanding board like me, you may want to look into using a stiffer backing board such as real plywood or OSB, or build a stiffer frame. I’m going to look at building a frame out of 1"x1" on the back of the board to stiffen it up.

Binder Clips into Office Weapons Wow, if you thought working at your white-collared job, sitting in your well equipped air-conditioned office, thinking that this is probably one of the safest place to be… you may just want to think twice about that. The office is a jungle. Beside having to watch your back against office colleagues who may be wolf in sheep’s clothes, you may just have to watch out for those seemingly utilitarian office supplies, because in conjuncture with other seemingly innocent office supplies, they may just result to be one of the deadliest office weapon yet. Below is an example of our favorite office supplies- binder clips, turned into office weapons. Take a few binder clips of varying sizes, turn them upside down, and clip the smaller binder clips inside the larger clips. It should look like this when the larger binder clips have clipped the smaller ones.

The Best Free Apron Patterns on the Net! I love aprons. Not only are they practical (I always end up with flour head to toe if I neglect to wear one), but they tend to keep me on task. And these days, there are so many fun aprons available, it's tempting to acquire a whole collection for every mood and whim. My favorite aprons have full coverage, long straps for tying, and never need ironing. The latter is one reason I love aprons made of quilted fabric. Besides, if you're like me and you can never find a pot holder when you need one, a good quilted apron can double as one.

More DIY Ideas: Creative Salvage Makeovers One of my favorite topics to blog about is DIY / Makeover project ideas. I really wish I lived in a house with a garage and/or backyard (instead of an apartment) so I could take on more of my own DIY weekend projects...but for now, I"ll just have to settle with scoping out other people's fabulous transformations for inspiration. I found this gallery via Sunset Magazine with some great ideas! Do you have any DIY projects in the works? Please share :)
