Today upon coming home from work, it was pretty much like any other day. I walked towards the front door, tripped over the newspapers, mindlessly threw them into the recycle bin and proceeded inside.
Once the door clicked shut, I gasped. Repening it in a real hurry and scrambling through the bin, the big search began for THEE paper. Where is it???? Was this the one?!
AHHH! It was! That’s ME!!
Today’s post chimes in so well with yesterday’s How to build a Dream Job While You Work A Dayjob post don’t you think? You just never know what’s around the corner, so always be armed and ready… with toolbox knowledge!
It was seriously such an easy decision. When I was contacted to speak at the Fraser Valley Women’s Expo in Chilliwack, (after I geeked out just a little) I knew immediately what to chat about. Focusing on all the elements I love, we are building an antique toolbox revolution at the Expo!
My love for creative toolboxes runs deep. They are easy to build, they look old, are so versatile, and can be used year around.
But there’s a bigger reason I desire these toolboxes to come to life in a big way.
I really want first time builders born after this Expo. It’s high time word gets out that every gal needs a good cordless drill, palm sander and miter saw in her life, so she can achieve skills she never dreamed possible.
I know what you’re thinking.
“Uh… that’s a tad dramatic. It’s only a toolbox.”
Maybe so! But know what happened after the Milner Spring Show last year when I had a demo table of these sweet things on the go?
Reader Paulette purchased a toolbox kit and after watching my demo, she was able to put it together at home and shot me a picture. YES!
Not long after that, she shot me another picture… of her new (ahem) POTTING BENCH.
The tool box was her first build. Ever.
So you see, there’s no such thing as ‘just a toolbox’. The smallest of things can be the beginning of something much bigger. For anyone.
I might even call you up to work the drill…
