it's really exciting! The attachment I found for my drill ( a forstner bit) makes this perfect and beautiful hole in the back of my wood blocks so they can hang flush against a wall. This means I won't have to drill and hammer my already finished paintings anymore (which was always a bit nerve racking). I found it to be too difficult to paint, scrape and incise a painting if it had a hanger attached to the back of it...I need to work with a piece lying flat on my work table. So anyways, I have drilled a number of blocks and am feeling a bit giddy after my power tool extravaganza!
Here are my five everyday loves (for gretchenmist)
1. our Rais woodburning stove
(keeps us warm in this drafty old house from breakfast thru story time)
(this paper is full of the best and worst of humanity and everything in between....it's actually tied with NPR but I spend much less time in my car these days....)
(without this product I resemble a walking bit of cotton candy...it has been my everyday love for the past 8 years)
(i love, love, love this space and am so grateful to have it....)
(my home is one block from the lake and it's constant presence whether I'm walking or driving makes my midwestern local seem open and expansive....)
I'm not going to tag anyone but I'd love to hear what your 5 everyday loves are on your own blog or here....
