Im not sure if this falls under the craft category, but ive always wanted to build a boat. Last year for fathers day I got myself a canoe building kit. When completed, wasnt the prettiest thing, but it actually floated

This winter/ spring I may make a kayak.

LOL!!!
What movie was that.... One Crazy Summer I think.... with John Cusack.... they built "the boat", and smashed the bottle right thru the hull???
LOVE that movie!
Just my stupid sense of humor....

Anyway here's Mr.Spider (not to be confused with SpiderMan..)
hanging out with his little waiting-to-be-mailed candycorn friends.
