Just Sharing

http://hiptranquilchick.com/webplayer/webplayer.html

I just want to share this wonderful podcast that I listen to every week. It's called the Hip Tranquil Chick. For me, it's a motivational podcast. The host, Kimberly Wilson interviews creative, hip chicks, once a week...they discuss their lives and what motivates them. They also talk about their dreams and how to make things happen....Sometimes it can get deep, but it can also be something as simple as a mom who just wants her kids to pick up after themselves...I hope you check it out. I think you'll like it....

Keep it Simple

Do It Yourself...

This idea wins the award for, most functional, best looking, yet simple, do it yourself shelving that I've seen in a while...two eqaul size plywood boards for top and bottom, and two equal size plywood boards for the sides...glue or screw together...stain or paint...Mount on the wall with brackets...and Wala, you now have an office.

Patio Seating

Why Didn't I Think of That?

How clever. PVC plumbing tubes covered in fabric and stacked...make unusual shelving for a modern space....Imagine doing an enitre wall in a baby or kids room...Nice.

51 Shots

I'm trying to get my mind around the fact that I live in a city in the United States, where the police can shot an unarmed citizen 51 times and be found not guilty. ...Wow! What's next?
