Our Fall To-Do List

Posted by John on September 11th, 2012

Hey everybody!  Another busy work week here for us means less project doing and more project planning.  Since we’re more or less into the whole Fall thing by now (I’m going along with it, although my feet are still in the beach sand), it’s time to post about all of our Fall projects.  What better […]

Our First Poll and Mums!

Posted by John on November 4th, 2011

So, yesterday on Twitter I promised our readers our first poll.  We’d like to add more interactivity and it’s a great way to get feedback on some of our projects and ideas.  Specifically, I said we’d be voting on a new catchphrase, with our current one being “building our home one project at a time.”  […]

Notice anything different around here?  Maybe our spooky Halloween banner?  Thought we’d be festive!  This week and next we’ll have some Halloween themed posts.

Little Pumpkin Baby Shower

Posted by Lisa on October 12th, 2011

Last Fall my Mom (and Dad) threw me (and John) and our little one to be a beautiful baby shower. The theme was “Lisa and John’s Little Pumpkin.” I was thrilled! We did not find out the gender, so everything was neutral. The pumpkin idea was great (…and you know how much I love pumpkins!). […]
