Shop Update

New cake things in the shop. You love cake too, right?


I also have a new workspace! I am loving it! Thank you IKEA and husband for putting it together. I hadn't even thought about lighting until we had it all put together. There is a glass portion in the top of the desk to light from below, but I need more light and hate the fluorescent overheads. We happened to have a light/lamp cord from IKEA laying around so I put together this little lampshade made from paper (with inspiration from a DIY blog post I saw somewhere (?) where they made a similar shade from wooden strips). It is nice to have more space... the husband and I had been sharing a desk for the last year (that's right, two computers, one desk, lots of bumping elbows). I have to say it was a little sad moving all of my things to the new desk after sitting next to each other every night at the computer... we felt like I was moving out or something... haha.

Etsy Love

Why have I not seen these?

I came across these pictures of my parents recently. In the middle of the 90's they literally took a church apart by hand from the top down so that all of it's parts could be salvaged. Nearly everything was cleaned up and sold to be reused; the ceiling joists, bricks, windows, pews, stone foundations, wood. I helped to clean some of the bricks during the process, but never really appreciated or understood how much work is involved in a project like this until I was older and came to admire their ambition and hard work. I wish I were as brave.

Big O Shop Update

Sorry for the country-soundin title but we went camping for one night and definitely picked up the country accent. Well, not really, but we're trying.

Bonus! Hilarious photo of one of our funny dogs. She looks like this on a pretty regular basis:
