    About 300-350 hours for a double bed. In days it really depends how much time I can spare. I usually spread it over 3-6 months, depending how busy I am.

    Considering I made and gave away a few of them, yes! I do love making them and I can't keep them all though, so… I make people happy with them :)

    We used to make Jesus a Birthday Cake but we stopped doing that many years ago as the kids started getting older.

    Last Christmas tree we had, I went out into the woods, chopped down a eastern red cedar. Brought it home, put it in a tree stand, we decorated it and put a bunch of presents under it. a few days later we had a infestation of baby praying mantis in the house (they vacuum up pretty easy with a shop vac). yep you guessed it that beautiful tree had multiple praying mantis nests in it and by bringing the tree into the warm house I caused them to hatch. We havn't had a Christmas tree since then.

    Our house is too small for a tree. We're talking about planting a tree out front this spring to decorate with outdoor things
