ORC Week Two (& Three?): A Very Scary Sunroom

ORC Week Two (& Three?): A Very Scary Sunroom

Well, it’s been an unproductive last few days! Already! On week 2 (or 3?)! My work’s upcoming Gala + editing photography for a wedding + working another part-time job + finishing up these ledges + just returning from New Orleans = all of three seconds to work […]

Making Display Ledges For My Vinyl Records

Making Display Ledges For My Vinyl Records

Once upon a time, my dad bundled up and, somewhat unintentionally, gifted me a handful of vinyl record albums. It was during my parents divorcing and them selling the house. Everything was being packed into boxes or thrown into trash cans. Despite me not having […]

A Very Scary Sunroom – One Room Challenge

My house has been one big challenge to tackle. But, when done in bits and pieces, has felt manageable. One particular agenda item I have been sliiightly pushing off is the daunting task of my sunroom. Next to the bathroom (and the entire floor replacement), […]

Cutting Out A Custom Cat Door

I’m going to tell you a tale that most are probably familiar with: having a dog and a cat simultaneously is a constant poopy battle. If your cats are anything like my cats, then they poop an obscene amount. Not only that, but it smells […]

The Bluffing Bubbly: A Spring-Themed, Winter-Time Mimosa

The Bluffing Bubbly: A Spring-Themed, Winter-Time Mimosa

While it might not be spring quite yet, the strangely warm and rainy weather has been trying to fool me. Shedding off my coat and opening my windows are both trying to persuade me to begin planting. My lawn is barren from cutting down two […]
