I planned for when I reached 10,000 page views I would do something to celebrate. I don't know how, or even why quite yet, but it means something special to me. It means almost as many people who live in the town I grew up in found something I created worthwhile enough to click on it. 10,000 is really small potatoes in the blog world, but I'm proud of it! Thank you. Profoundly. And to the 16 brilliant people who follow me :).... You guys are the cool trendsetters!

Mixing Custom Glaze

I know, I know... it's been a little while since a post. I'm in the middle of a custom built-in project for a client and have been a bit consumed. I'll have before and after photos of that  project coming soon! I was working in the garage this morning and I started to think of my tools and projects I can't live without. Glaze quickly came to mind.

Ruffled Slipcovers

One of the skills my very beautiful and very talented mother taught me was how to sew. I grew up sewing prom dresses and curtains alike (yeah we were poor). Have I mentioned that I dislike sewing? Well, I REALLY do and this last project has just reminded me of that. I guess if someone is offering me a sizable amount of money I can push past my extreme dislike for a few hours.

The (other) Twins & More Caning Tutorial

Sorry for my absenteeism. I've been so super busy this last week, I just haven't had time to get a new post together. To give you an idea of what the last couple of days has been like, I have a nightstand drying in my garage that has three different colors of paint on it. ARG! More on that later.
