Thank you so very much for the feature!!! I am grabbing a button right now!


Hi Lisa, I need to make time to design a Featured button. This task will be on the agenda for this week. oxoxo… You did a such a beautiful job on that bench. Come see me in Alaska…. I have a headboard and footboard that you can work your magic on. I could do the construction part, but that part drives me bonkers. Focusing on paint finishes and proper prepping is where I excel. Love ya, lady!
