Saw this the other day when I was at Home Depot…
A bunch of kids taking part in a Home Depot Kids Workshop in Franklin, Tennessee.
…I wish I’d participated in a few do-it-yourself projects when I was a kid!
The only “hands-on experience” I got as a little kid was in my own backyard… making mud pies and collecting lightening bugs & nightcrawlers.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
