I've been caught up in a number of eyebrow-blowing-off experiences lately.
First, my talk at TEDxWaterloo at the end of March. It consumed me. I've never worked harder on anything, yet I still made crucial mistakes, which have driven me crazy for more than 2 months. Until this morning, when I realized that our mistakes become our future strengths so I should respect my mistakes, not revile them.
I also started work on a new season of Lowe's Family Fun Projects. This year we're working with Tweens. The kids have lots of cool design ideas (headboards, WarHammer terrains, treehouse upgrades). It's going to be amazing to watch them work with their hands.
I've been experimenting with getting some cool finishes on furniture. Here's one of them:
And here's another:
I made sheers after the blinds fell apart (employing doorknobs from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore)
Kicked off the 2013 Habitat for Humanity WomenBuild. Want to join me in September?

And traveled to Saskatoon and Vancouver for Skills Canada's provincial and national competitions. More on that this week from Vancouver with the adorable Mike Holmes.
