Nuts and Bolts

Chris doesn't have any sort of pencil holder for all of his pencils and pens in his workshop, so I decided to make him one! I thought it would be fun to make him one from things that you can find in a workshop. So, on one of our many trips to Home Depot I got a metal electrical plate cover and two boxes of 5/16" nuts, and away I art-ed


If I was to do it again I think I would get a circular plate because the corners were REALLY hard (notice all the glue gobs), it's a little big (4" diameter was the smallest I could find), and I would make it taller, but each box was $9! (and I used up two). All in all though, I think it's pretty cool, and now Chris has a (very) sturdy pencil holder.


About six weeks ago Chris' mom came up from LA to visit and helped us build a raised vegetable garden. It was great because it was a project we actually finished! It took the three of us a day to weed, level, build the frame and plant everything.


Our garden has gotten quite big now! It's really nice having something done, and something that we can enjoy so much. I'm so glad we built it, it looks great, and everything tastes so yummy!!!
