I'm usually a HUGE procrastinator, but I' actually planning ahead for once in my life. I just happen to know that my boys will be getting a few small collectibles for Christmas next week. (I have an "in" at the North Pole). Until now, I've been the mean mom and haven't really caved on collectibles like Tsum Tsums and Shopkins. I have a low tolerance for clutter, so the idea of welcoming dozens of little tchotchkes into my house gives me hives.

Christmas is less than a week away. Are you in a total scramble mode yet? I got a late start on my decorations this year. I sweet talked my husband into helping set up the Christmas tree a few days ago, but we didn't have a tree skirt to put on it. If you're a procrastinator like me, no worries! I've got an easy tutorial that will give you something I think is even better than a boring old skirt.

I chose my blog name, Pneumatic Addict, after being inspired by my favorite power tool, the brad nailer. A very close second is the impact driver. I love those little guys! I can honestly say I use an impact driver on almost every project. If you're interested in learning what's the difference between an impact driver and a power drill, check out this blog post all about drills

I currently own 5 different impact drivers, all from different manufacturers. If you are on a budget, I'd hands down recommend the new brushless impact from Ryobi.

My mom had to work full time when I was a kid, so my brother and I spent a lot of time together, just the two of us. Summer breaks could become pretty long and once we re-watched Ghostbusters about 5 times, we would break out the board games. One of our favorites was and still is Mancala.

Holy cow guys! It's not even December and most of the houses on our street already have their Christmas lights up. I feel like a slacker! We don't have a tree up, and I haven't bought a single gift yet. Thank goodness for the internet and free shipping!

Plywood Hanging Planter Tutorial

How to make a West Elm knock-off hanging planter from scrap plywood

I love me some West Elm! I hit up their website all the time looking for "inspiration". In fact, I actually just built an 8 ft long console table for my sister that was influenced by a West Elm piece. Although I love the modern West Elm style, I'm not a fan of their prices.

My sister Emily is awesome. Her awesome husband recently retired from the Air Force after twenty years of service, and like many military families, they have made huge sacrifices and have moved all over the world. It's been years since their family had a house they could call their own. They finally have been able to buy a gorgeous new home and settle down close to me.
