Over the years my children have become adjusted to life with a mother who is a frustrated carpenter at heart. They have watched my tool collection grow as Mother Day meant a new saw or drill or a bit for my Dremel.
Now, I can say with great pride that I was a recycler before my time! I love taking an old door and turning it into a headboard ... my current prooject or transforming an old fridge into DVD storage. There's something about finding that one piece and giving it a second chance at life in my livingroom that makes all the mess seem very wothwhile.
