After I build the peep box, it is time to take a photo of it. I find that the perspective can be changed when the light inside the box is increased. This box was fun to make, I used junk mail, foil, a clear glass marble, a stapler and a long skinny box,  contructed while listening to the song "Th...

A slight change in your perspective can change your day for the better. If the day has become less than ideal, remember to stop, take a deep breath, think about standing at the beach, waves are crashing, fishing boats are off shore, they're hauling in a fresh catch of Dungeness, and you are enjoy...

Circular stairs can be great to maximize sleeping spaces for kids, or perhaps lead to a small attic room with a fantastic view.  This set of circular stairs is in a beach house in Waldport, about a half hour south of Newport, Oregon. I find them charming, however, they should be used with care.Th...

Feast your eyes upon this very nice ocean front view...however, it comes with a price. "The M word!" When a vacation home is left unattended, the wind and rain can wreak havoc with the roof and siding. Here is an example of what happens when you combine a damaged roof with the awesome power of Mo...

 To make a wall hanging, all you need is a collection of plastic bags, rinse clean of debris, cut them open and use the colors you find appealing. My translucent window hanging was made of various bags and netting used to hold onions and potatoes. Use a stapler to attach the loose pieces to one m...

Go ahead, take a look inside!!! I have found that making 3 dimensional art inside of a shoebox is a great way to relax after a long day of showing homes, managing transaction paperwork.  All you need is a shoe box, old magazines and tape, perhaps some cotton and aluminum foil too.  I use a small ...
