Time Spent In Our Workshop

Time Spent In Our Workshop

Patrick’s brother sent us this yesterday, and I think it is safe to say he has spent MORE THAN ENOUGH time with us in the shop. He has our workshop habits down pat because this graph depicts EXACTLY what goes on around here on a daily basis.

Now, off to find that MISSING TOOL I was looking for…

What A Weekend!

What A Weekend!

Hi Friends, and Happy Monday! We hope all of you had a WONDERFUL weekend! Ours was so BUSY, but so GOOD! For starters, we were able to check CAKE off of our To-Do List! We actually purchased them for $2.00 each! WHAT A STEAL! Yep, they were on the discount rack, and they were MOIST and DELICIOUS. And since we had so much, we were able to SHARE our desserts with our family and friends. So, it was truly a blessing. As we always like to say, it is a BLESSING to be a BLESSING! Continue reading

Cleaning And Organizing The Shop

Cleaning And Organizing The Shop

While our current projects were drying this afternoon, we did some MUCH NEEDED CLEANING AND ORGANIZING in our shop! (We had SAWDUST FOR DAYS from all of the building that we have been doing lately!) We do this periodically because having an organized work space allows our business to operate much more SMOOTHLY and EFFICIENTLY.  Plus, we always seem to find better ways to organize our materials each time we do it.

Today, we added some peg board in order to make our most frequently used tools more EASILY ACCESSIBLE for us. We also put up some small SHELVING for our nails, screws, and glue. These new additions will help our workdays go by much more smoothly, which in turn makes us HAPPY! It is often the little things in life that can make such a HUGE DIFFERENCE! 

DIY Hanging Jewelry Organizer

DIY Hanging Jewelry Organizer

Happy Friday, Friends! We are back with another great DIY project for y’all! And as always, it is very cost effective and time friendly. Depending upon paint drying times, it should not take more than a few hours to make. We were able to pull together our material list from scrap lumber pieces, paint, and wire left over from previous projects. But you could easily find all of these materials at your local hardware store without breaking the bank.

This design came out of my own desperate need of somewhere to organize and store my hanging earrings and necklaces. I had a very small jewelry box that I would typically cram all of my jewelry into. But after many years, it became obvious that this was no longer a working option. Every time I would go to pull out a particular piece of jewelry, I would get a crazy, tangled ball of jewelry that looked like this….Continue reading

Tip Of The Week! “Easy PVC Organization For Tools”

Tip Of The Week! “Easy PVC Organization For Tools”

Alrighty, Friends! Here is our tip of the week: “Easy PVC Organization for Tools!” If y’all are anything like us, tools can be difficult to keep organized. If they do not have a “specific” place to go, they typically end up getting thrown into our shed. Before we know it, we have one big disorganized mess! And the Spring and Summer months seem to be our biggest challenge when it comes to keep our shed clean. Well, that is all about to change!

We found an amazing way to keep all of our tools organized and in their proper places. Simply cut small portions of PVC pipe and secure them to your wall. Then attach a name tag on the front of each one! Now you have a place for each tool, which helps to keep your shed safe and clean! And it can save you money in the long run, too! With all of your tools in their proper place, you will know exactly where they are at all times! This will eliminate the need to head out to the hardware store to pick up another replacement tool up because you cannot find your original.
