Create some Curb Appeal

#SpringisCalling It calls all right. It’s calling me out for the almost-criminal neglect of the front of our home during the winter. It’s not like Winter really prevented me from doing anything. But in Florida, I still have to mow the lawn in January. Water plants and pluck weeds, too. And I probably haven’t done … Continue Reading

Photography: Crop Your Photos Like a Pro

Cropping a photo was one of the first things I learned how to do in my layout class in college. We did it by hand, with a ruler, grease pencil and your eyes all squinty-like to get an idea of how it’s gonna look when it comes back from the service bureau or printer. That … Continue Reading

Kitchen Paint Refresh

Not everyone can change a dryer belt, build a cat condo or assemble your kid’s bike. But everyone can pretty much paint a room. You might not be a pro, but you have no problem picking up a brush or a roller (but never one of those paint pad things), opening up a gallon of … Continue Reading

Photography: Content Aware Awareness

When I’m taking shots of the family, I’m trying to be aware of what’s going on in the subject…are they looking at the camera, smiling, tall in back/short in front? …and then I’m all adjusting the camera settings, fiddling with a lens…blah blah blah.

I Re-tiled My Kitchen

It was 1999. We were looking for a home and knew exactly what we wanted. A mid-century, concrete block, terrazzo floor-laden home. Our realtor found one. It had the flat sweeping roof line and terrazzo made of black, gray and pink stone—it was perfect. But perfectly creepy. Like someone-just-died-in-the-home-and-they’re-still-there creepy. So overwhelmingly creepy that we … Continue Reading

Photography: Fixing Group Photos

It never fails. You take a group shot and something (someone) always ruins it. They blink. They look away. A rabbit ear here, a nose pick there. Little Billy vomits or the dog is humping Aunt Dot’s leg. Well, I got a fix for most of those. Crate the dog Tell everyone to say “cheese.” … Continue Reading

Small Parts Organizer Organizer

This post is about organizing. From a person whose desk looks like a paper truck collided with an armored car. An armored car that only carries pennies. And both trucks were struck by a rocket-propelled grenade—a grenade filled with cat hair. Anyway…when I was a kid, my mom used the excuse “he’s creative.” So I … Continue Reading
