Every Sunday after church, I stop by my local Dollar Tree store to see what seasonal decor, gifts, and food items they have, and since everything is only a $1, I can get Christmas crazy!

Seriously, for that kind of price, you can create some some super Christmas gifts, holiday decor masterpieces, and craft projects for the kiddos to do at a fraction of the price.

Free Woodworking Classes

My hubby has decided that he is going to finally start learning how to use his wood router and design some custom pieces for our home.  (Hopefully, an entertainment center)  🙂  When he mentioned this to me,  I thought about the online woodworking classes that are available at Craftsy.com and I told him to check out a FREE class called, “Flawless Finishing” to see if this would be a type of learning environment that makes sense for him.  I think he will enjoy that he can watch these classes anytime he wants on  his phone or tabular device.   Which is perfect for anyone who is always on the go!  Below, is a class description and if you decide to give Craftsy a try, you must check out all the other FREE classes that are available while your there.  Now, I want my hubby to get cracking because I really do want a new entertainment center…..LOL

Never fear finishing again! Learn accessible techniques and troubleshooting tips from furniture maker and instructor Robert Spiece in this free mini-class. Find out how to pick the right finish based on the wood grain and desired outcome for your piece. Then, experiment with a variety of finishes to make the grain pop as you master wipe-on, brush-on and rottenstone hand-rub techniques. Robert will demonstrate how to prepare your wood for a smooth finish and share application methods for flawless results. You’ll even learn how to easily and efficiently work with curved and offset pieces. Plus, get important safety tips to protect you and your shop!

I know a ton of people who are wanting to save some money by learning how to update or create their own cabinetry masterpieces.  Here’s a mini-class to get you started.

 

Sawing Success

What good does it do to buy all of that those tools and not have a clue as to how to use them, and…..honestly I would rather learn from someone else than my hubby at times.  LOL
