Wondering what my wife will think. Answered

I was having fun with the kids in the garden this morning. It seemed like a great idea at the time, but now I am wondering if my wife will appreciate it as much as we do?
Any guesses?


I like it. The eyebrows really make it pop.

Well I listened, and hastily wrote up what I knew would be a lacking 'ible. Sadly it made my Instructable ego ticker featured score drop. Which prompted me to do a quick photo 'ible of it and irssitible.

My featured % came back up, but is still lower than when I started.

Any suggestions on how I can improve this one? (I have little that I can go on, my son took the only shots of it in progress, and while I know I must have a decent shot of the tree with no mod somewhere, I cannot for the life of me find one.)

Sigh, I'll need to write like 2 more and get featured to get my score back up.

I'm going to try and take a better shot of the tree, brighter morning today.

I left the comment before checking out more than the first picture :) It looks fine. Woops!

Just updated anyways. Added a bit more text too. Sigh, I don't know, while I love the tree, not too fond of the ible. Oh well, just bring down my featured percent. The next one may be better.

I only took a shot when it was done. Thanks! :)
My son may have a shot or two on his i-pod, but he is 7, so I am not sure if they are good enough to magic up an ible from.
...That being said, there is a bigger cedar in the other corner....I still think she is going to have a fit.
but, too late now.
I'll ask if I can do the other one.

Like Jayefuu suggested, it doesn't have to be a full blown step-by-step Instructable. Just a photo-only Instructable will suffice with some explanation of how to create the same. I personally think you'd get a ton of views. It's great!

okay, shoddy at best though

You could also add a photo of the tools you used laid out on the grass to bulk it out. And a cute shot of the kids hiding behind or peeking around it. Something likke that.

Only tool used was a clipper, it's in the shots. I didn't feel there was much to write up, it was a spur of the moment thing with the kids. I have no technique, no previous experience, nothing to write. We 'felt' it out, and had a good time doing it. I will add a shot of the clippers if you think it will help the ible.

Not at night.


Hehe - if she doesn't love it, she's just wrong.

Ha that's brilliant. Instructable! Or at the very least a photo instructable. I bet that'll look great if it gets snowed on too. He'll have frosty eyebrows.

HAHAHA.... I LOVE it! That's just awesome. You should make an Instructable for it.

If she has a sense of humor, she'll love it too. ;-)
