I meant to post this earlier, but Steve has been holding the camera hostage at work for the past several days. This is a cute toddler backpack that I made for our friend Joshua’s first birthday. He’s probably a little too little to wear it, but I figured that he’ll be ready to stuff it […]

Before:After:I finally covered our horribly disgusting, most embarrassing piece of living room furniture. I have no idea what the gross stain is. I think it started as a small stain, but then I tried to clean it and made it worse. Then it became a cat chair, and I gave up on it ever being […]
