Building A Raised Bed Out Of Pallets

  Hi all! Happy weekend! We’ve had a big run of warm spring weather the past few weeks so like the last post, we’ve been able to get outside and do lots of projects.

How & Why I Made A Pet Binder

How & Why I Made A Pet Binder

It all started one summer afternoon when Tucker and I were playing in the backyard.

I must have looked so awkward crouching down to get a closer look, trying to get him to hold still. I couldn’t see any obvious active bleeding or bites, so I…
