Labor day is this weekend friends, and that means for many of you it's the last chance to go make friends with the Great Outdoors before fall hits. One of the benefits of living in Arizona is that we get to enjoy camping from about April to October. I bet you didn't know almost half of Arizona is actually covered in mountains and pine trees (yes, seriously). The majority of the Arizona population lives in Phoenix or Tucson, smack dab in the desert, so that's the image most of us get when we think of AZ. Surprisingly, although I live in a Phoenix suburb, I'm only about 1-2 hours from mountain lakes and cool breezes. 

Both my husband and I love to go camping. In fact, we actually met on camping trip with mutual friends. We also both love tools! On our last trip to the mountains, we brought several tools to make life away from home a little easier. I put together a list of 5 extremely helpful tools you definitely need to bring with you when you camp.

I might make pretty things, but until recently the space where I made those things sure wasn't pretty. My garage was downright embarrassing and in need of some MAJOR storage! In one afternoon, with some sturdy hardware, I created a totally customizable garage storage wall. No more boxes on the floor!

Trying new things is good for you! I'm always urging you guys to try something new, like learning to weld or upping your staining game, so I suppose I should take my own advice. When my friends from BuildSomething.com asked me to create a new project I tried something new and I totally think it payed off! What do you think?
