Adding Floating Shelves

Posted by John on December 11th, 2012

Finishing a new home seems to be a continuous series of baby steps.  There have been major “ah-ha” moments, like when we finished the shed or the dining room wainscoting, but for the most part, our DIY projects have been minor in scope and fairly frequent.  Our to-do list never seems to end.  One of […]

Things are a bit busy at the moment.  Work is hectic, which is typical before the holidays and I’ve got about a week left in my grad class.  I’m really enjoying the course, but it does eat into my free time like a son of a gun.  Looking forward to the Christmas break.  I’ll have […]

Posted by Lisa on November 20th, 2012

Hey hey! This time around I get to share with you my two cents on Christmas shopping for the ladies. My parents and I have been midnight Black Friday shoppers since, well, Black Friday shopping started at 5am.
