I’m Still Here!! Plans for 2016

Good grief! It’s been over a month since I last posted on here. Please please please forgive me. I promise I’m not being lazy…I’m just swamped with this and that. I know you know how that goes…
I’m so excited to start off 2016 with a long list of ideas and plans and hopes and dreams! I’m curious to see how much of those actually happen this year haha! 
First, I’d like to share with you some upcoming plans for the year. Hopefully they will peak your interest πŸ™‚
Building plans–I’ve actually made a few things since I last posted, I just haven’t had time to get a how to together for them. I plan to soon show you how I made an octotrisquareagon. 
And a tractor shelf. And possibly a porch swing. And some board and batten. And nightstands. The list goes on. Just know that I plan to show you lots πŸ™‚ 
Room remodels–this year I am remodeling our office, our master bathroom, our guest room, and possibly our master bedroom (if time permits). Busy is an understatement. Dream big, right? The office is in progress…very early stages–which basically means it’s just a huge mess haha. The bathroom is next. What is wrong with me?!
I also have some exciting news…BUT I can’t tell you yet. I can’t trust you to keep a secret and I was told not to tell…yet. No offense πŸ™‚ but it is exciting. At least for me πŸ™‚ but I’m going to need your help, so keep your eyes and ears ready when I am allowed to spill the beans! Actually this is one reason why I’ve been so absent lately. I have been working on a time consuming project that I was completely clueless on how to do. Well that and the holidays. Those will get ya. 
Anyways, I’m sorry for rambling. I’m just checking in to let you all know I’m still here and I have a lot planned for 2016. And I’m sorry for not posting in forever.  And I really hope you choose to follow along with me on these upcoming new projects. If nothing else, I may be mildly entertaining and you might get a laugh every now and then πŸ™‚ 
One last thing…My goal for this year is to continue growing this blog and be more consistent.  I hope to be more consistent in my posting and to be more consistent in my quality.  I’d love suggestions or feedback on what you’d like to see more of so feel free to comment or send me an email. 
Thanks to you all for following so far. You guys make my day. I hope I can reciprocate that into this new year πŸ™‚

    Happy New Year! I wanted you to know I made two twisty tables for my two adult (40 & 43) daughters for Christmas and they absolutely loved them. I am now looking forward to making the octotrisquareagon so post it soon. As far as suggestions for projects, I most appreciate the smaller ones like the twisty table or the octotrisquareagon. While I enjoy following some of your projects like the barn doors to cover your laundry room, my wife and I designed our β€œretirement home” and I like it just the way it is. Just my two cents worth.

    Keep those projects coming,

    Tom Clarke

    P.S. Your exciting news – are you pregnant?

      Yay I’m so glad they liked them! And thank you for your suggestions! I agree. The smaller projects probably appeal to more people. And no the exciting news isn’t about a pregnancy. It’s blog/DIY related πŸ™‚

    I searched your blog for the octotrisquareagon. Is it here and I’m just missing it? I’m new to your blog so maybe I’m not looking in the right places, but I used the search tool and came up only with this “I’m still here….”. Love what you do! I’m a noobie woodworker and loving it. You’re an inspiration. I’m in the middle of making the snowflake shelf with I LOOOOOVE!

      Thank you! Yes, it’s still on the site. Not sure why it’s not showing up in the search. Odd. Check out the projects page under DIY Furniture πŸ™‚ Sorry for the trouble!
