I Want to Make Stuff

And that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m dedicating this weekend to only four main things: go on a 12 mile run, explore a new local brewery, go to church, and CRAFT. The crafting is going to be part spring cleaning, part sewing/painting/building, and it’s about time I got to it! There is a whole list of projects I’ve been meaning to do, and now I’m finally going to make time for them.

I’m sharing this with you all not just for your reading pleasure…but also because I hope you all hold me accountable. I better come out of this weekend with some great photos of my finished projects to share with you all!

Here’s the plan (more or less):

How to Open a Bottle of Wine Without a Corkscrew

I think this guy opened his bottle faster with his shoe than I did with a real corkscrew…

And also, please admire this gorgeous wine stopper my friend’s father made. That’s right…made, created, handcrafted. It’s almost as impressive as that time my dad offered to make me a pulley system to lower my bicycle from my second story balcony to the sidewalk.

Cheers (to talented dads and easy-to-open wine)!
