Busy Beaver Button Museum.

December 8th, 2010 · Comments Off on Busy Beaver Button Museum.

collages by jacob whibley: a nod to a paper-peppered past.

November 15th, 2010 · Comments Off on collages by jacob whibley: a nod to a paper-peppered past.

November 12th, 2010 · Comments Off on paperback wall.

In the last few months I have attempted to read about four different books…but with my crazy busy life and inability to prioritize, I am ashamed to say that I don’t think I have completed a single one.  Instead, I spend my time doing more important things…like researching cool how-tos.  Luckily, in doing so, I […]
