There is Always A Day Job And Proper Blog Usage

The Use What You've Got scrap wood project has really got my mind exploding with ideas.  I'm having a great time coming up with things but I'm having trouble getting to them because I have orders to fill.  And it is kind of slowly dawning on me that "Oh!  coasters and signs are my day… Continue reading There is Always A Day Job And Proper Blog Usage
