2018 is finally here! We now have 365 new opportunities to make something great! I can’t wait to see what wonderful things that I get to share with you this year. There are so many ideas rolling around in my head that it sometimes keeps me up at night. I don’t want to give too much away, but I am planning a few big woodworking and organizing projects for this year. But, before we get started with what is to come, let’s take a look back at what you, the viewers, have chosen for 2017’s top ten posts!
Well, we have reached the end of another year, and what a great year it has been! I have met and gotten to know some fabulous people. This blog has grown to twice the size that it was last year, and just recently I expanded it to include a Blogger’s Beat section. (A place where I will share my tips and tricks for blogging related DIYs.) I have also enjoyed the comments and questions submitted by all of you wonderful people! It has been a blast, and I am thrilled to bring you 2017’s Year End Review!
I am of the opinion that DIYers and crafters are some of the easiest people for whom to shop. As I tell my husband, “Just walk into the home improvement store. If I don’t have, I want it.” Seems easy enough to me, but I understand that we can also be particular about brands, products, etc. So, I thought that I would let you in on what DIYers and/or crafters really want. These are the best gift ideas for crafters and DIYers. Choose from this list, and you can’t go wrong.
If you look through enough articles on my blog, you will begin to notice a heavy concentration on storage/organization (in addition to my love for woodworking). One particular area that seems to garner an excessive amount of interest is closets. Everyone wants to know how to get the most out of their own clothing storage space. As a result, I get a lot of questions concerning this issue. Today, I would like to address some of these questions. So, I will be going over the standard closet measurement guidelines.

If you have been paying attention to any of the home remodeling TV shows, then I am sure that you have seen some form of cement tile being installed. These are sometimes referred to as pattern tiles, and are reminiscent of either a Mediterranean or New Orleans style (depending on the design). However, these tiles are making a comeback in a big way. So, if you enjoying keeping up with current trends, then you should really check these out.
