My Home Organization Must-Haves

I used to believe that I could get my home organized with items I found around the house. You know, grab an old Amazon box and turn it into a basket and boom – your house is organized! But, I’ve learned it doesn’t work quite like that. Home organization is a tad more complicated and, for me at least, requires a purchase or two. I haven’t ever had success at keeping the spaces in my home organized until I got intentional about finding and buying organizational tools intended specifically for the space I was working on. No more one-size-fits-all baskets or random bins scrounged from the house. It’s all about making intentional choices if you want it to last. I’ve...

Our Favorite Things

A random thought came to mind recently, as sometimes happens when I’m at a corporate meeting or during a Sunday sermon. This one was, how many woodworking projects have I built in my life? As I dove into this rabbit hole, I quickly decided it was impossible to determine. (Did the sword and shield I built as a kid qualify as one project…or two?) Then I asked myself what woodworking project has brought me the fondest memories? What has been my favorite project? This turned out to be nearly as difficult. But I got there eventually. What about you? Do you have a favorite? Or maybe just a favorite for this year? If so, share it with us! A picture...
