And so this is Christmas… flops and all

read

Today I worked on my first 2014 Christmas project. It was rather cute! And sorry for the mere peek… I need to make 11 more before December 1st, so I promise if I come up with a surplus, I will start sharing early. 🙂 Anyway, the one project inspired me to do more. So I […]

Funky new boarded wall for the laundry room

read

Back in the day, whenever someone would be sitting in front of the TV, we’d all be in danger of ‘the laundry basket’. Mom would swoop into the room, plunk a big ‘ol basket full of freshly line dried laundry in front of us, and we knew the drill. But we whined anyway. “I don’t waaaant to fold that! I […]

A blogger’s busy season is about to fire up with Christmas straight ahead. Remember 12 Days of Christmas last year? That’s happening again! So I’m mulling over 12, easy junk styled Christmas tutorials to whip up. And being that my home is generally a dark cave this time of year, it’s nice to be able to […]

22 – Drilling towards success

read

On Tuesday night after dinner, my son suggested we watch Lord of The Rings / The Fellowship of the Ring together. I’ll never turn down a date with my son!  And I certainly didn’t think I’d be posting tonight because of it. That is one, long, intense, but awesome movie! And I saved money, because I won’t […]

Toolbox paint storage paper roll caddy – by complete fluke

LOVE it when stuff like this just happens. By fluke. You caught that this was a toolbox, right? HILARIOUS how my little reclaimed wood toolboxes […]

Organize your tools on an enhanced pallet shelf

read

I cut myself a deal. Whatever I’d put in my single car garage turned dream workshop, it would be: #1. Unique. #2. Super easy to make for others to copy. #3. Hopefully, quite possibly free. #4. Very me. And I do believe I’ve achieved that with this one. Organize your tools on an enhanced pallet […]

18 – Rejoice! You are who you are.

read

While waiting for our regular Friday night pizza delivery, I decided to spend a little time in the workshop and work on a new project. It was a drizzly night, but that didn’t matter. With lights blazing, I opened the back and main garage door so I could take in the fresh air and hear the […]

17 – Reduce mind mess. Follow a day planner.

read

I had such big plans today. I was going to start a new project, but I needed my workshop.  So I went into the workshop but had forgotten about having pushed everything away from the wall I was working on (and didn’t finish) the other day. So I pushed enough back to create a trail to my […]

CN Tower, Wicked, Graffiti Alley in Toronto. Wow.

read

I’ve always wanted to visit New York. So when I most recently spent some time in Toronto, it was incredibly tempting to hop on a plane after Blogpodium and fly on over there. Know what? New York IS on my bucket list, bar none. But Toronto offered me all the NYC perks without the added […]
