I promise this will never be a DIY blog. I'm only a dabbler. I do read a couple of those blogs, and they've given me the little shove I needed to take my fate in my hands and actually attempt some things. And I've really been enjoying the sense of accomplishment I get when I do a project that actually has a beginning and an end. It's amazing to finish a job and then be done with it. Most of the things I work really hard at are repetitive tasks that are never really finished (i.e. laundry, dishes, food prep).
