Coconut & Green Tea Ice Cream

Coconut & Green Tea Ice Cream

Ice cream is awesome! Homemade ice cream is awesomer! Yes, homemade ice cream can be somewhat time-consuming, but allow me to explain why it’s worth the effort and awesomer than store-bought ice cream.

Pallet & Shims Wall Art

Pallet and Shims Wall Art

A few weeks back I did a shim sunburst mirror project. Apparently I got shim fever because a few weeks later I got another project idea to do with shims. In my master bedroom next to the closet door was a bare wall with a lonely chair.  The wall has stayed bared for some time…
