Here and There…

Here and There…

(Y.R.C.) D.I.Y. Resurrection Eggs!

I don’t know about you, but all too often when I get all excited about How-To Do-It-Yourself projects, I get to reading the directions only to find that they are in reality, not so easy to Do Yourself.  “All you need is”…a chainsaw?  Some plywood or metal?  Or a really cute idea will only take you 3-4 hours to tediously … Continue reading
