Dan the Tool Man Porter

When you let your husband spend $800 or so on tools, you get this:

Introducing my new ribbon rack!!!!! I've been asking Dan for MONTHS to build me some sort of ribbon organizer for my scrapbook room. My ribbon was in boxes everywhere and I had no idea what I owned and what I didn't. This is what he came up with and I am MORE than pleased with it!! Now all that's left is buying more ribbon to fill it up :)

My awesome hubby also built this for my mom :

My mom's due to have her first grandchild in April so she was really pleased to receive this rocking chair for Christmas. I told Dan I wanted one for our house :)

I'd also like to show off the great gingerbread house we made on Christmas Day. Dan did most of the structure and I had fun with the decorating. I will have to admit that Dan made the sweet flag :)Lastly, I'll post a few pictures of the gifts I made for the teachers at school. I was pleased with the way they turned out.

That's it folks. I hope you enjoyed my update :)

You need to color-code your ribbons, stat.

And did you tell Dan that you wanted a baby or a rocking chair for the house??? :)

Love you, roomie.

I'm a big fan of husbands buying tools because we always get stuff out of it, too, since our husbands are busybodies and actually build stuff with their tools. :-)

What an amazing hubby you have! Wow! Now I need to show my hubby this, because I know exactly how you felt - my ribbons are also everywhere. Tons of hugs from Sweden - Anki
