Shelving Videos

For a number of years I’ve been watching videos of various makers and builders on YouTube. And now I’ve decided to try my own hand at it. I’m enjoying spending more time making things. In addition to improving my skills with the tools, I’m also learning more about video and editing. While I’ve posted some […]

Does Monday always have to be a drag?

2016 Goals

First….Happy New Year! I hope you have an amazing year ahead of you! I haven’t really done resolutions for a while now, and while the idea was nice, I don’t think I want to try a 2016 in 2016, or 50 at 50 type list of things to do this year, so I’m going to […]

Most of the thoughts contain nothing grand, or stressful but the sheer volume overwhelmed me, leaving me emotionally confused. For some […]

Santa for a Night

Though Santa and I have shared a similar physiques for quite a long time, this is the first year I’ve actually gotten to be Santa Clause. The opportunity came up only the day before an event at the local elementary school, and even though I’d never done this before, once I knew it was possible […]
