Freestanding, Angled Bookcase – free building plans!

Build this Crate & Barrel “Strut Bookcase” knock-off for about $39 US (versus $799) with these free building plans for my freestanding, angled bookcase.

I’m happy today guys…

I was “nudged” back out to my She-Shop to get building again and after I (grudgingly) did, I felt inspired.

Frustrated with my errors (listed below), happy I could fix them, happy to have company to help and VERY happy with how this freestanding, angled bookcase turned out!

I started with this image I found on […]

Valentine’s for Couples (in a DIY top hat container)

Repurpose a coffee or hot cocoa canister into an adorable top hat that you can fill with Christmas cookies, Easter treats or sexy Valentine’s gifts for couples.

Okay Dad, stop reading right here.

Seriously, you DON’T want to scroll any further….  (I know I’m 46 guys, but he’s still my Dad – I don’t want to give him a stroke!)

This post has been in the making since roughly November.

I wanted to show how to make a top hat out by repurposing a […]

Why? My struggle with marketing.

This is a blog post I wrote in 2015 – so I’m not as thin and sexy (or even married) as I was back then…

who am I kidding – I’ve never been this thin and sexy (lol) but my conundrum/frustration is still valid – I think that marketing TO women is missing the mark.

(and yes – before you all rush to ask – I AM available for underwear modelling… with a mask and Doritos)


I have a bee in my bonnet.

I […]

These are a few of my favourite things… Best buys 2019

I’ve been meaning to write this blog post for some time, and with the Holidays right around the corner it seemed like a great opportunity to share a few of my favourite things… just in case you know someone that these might be good for.

As a blogger, I often get “samples” to test and review.  There have been times when I’ve had to refuse a review because the product itself just wasn’t up to my standards – and I don’t […]

Scrap wood playing card holder – help for little/old hands

Know someone with little hands, old hands, achey hands, shakey hands…. you get the idea.  Gifting them this simple scrap wood playing card holder can help bring the fun back into games and it only takes minutes to make!

Good morning everyone!

We had an awesome weekend here in SW Ontario – Sunday brought freezing rain all day and then Monday we received a light coating of snow overtop.  Dangling icicles from evergreens with just a frosting of snow – magical.  Treacherous […]

DIY Doghouse – Keep your pets warm this winter

Looking for DIY doghouse plans for a larger breed dog?  This DIY dog house (with free building plans), is perfect for our Berner and would easily fit labs, golden retrievers and other breeds in the 100lb range.

London has introduced new bi-laws where anyone caught leaving their dogs outside for an extended time in the cold can and will be fined.  I am 100% on board with this – I abhor animal cruelty – BUT Miss Lacey is a Bernese MOUNTAIN […]
