A Project to Share

A couple weeks back I heard from Greg at Eliminate The Muda dot com. He was working on an article that focused on DIY and had heard that I enjoyed  woodworking. I was happy to send him a picture of my most prized work, a rocking horse I built for my then 2 year old from scratch along with a writeup of what effort went into it. My story and that of two other finance bloggers, Paul Van Lierop and Joe Plemon is presented today in The Value of DIY is Greater Than Just Savings.

    You did such a great job on that! You should be so proud of yourself!

    Thanks! I saw the design for it and said “If I ever have a child, I’m making one of those.” Over ten years later, I was married with the baby, and this was her 2nd birthday gift.
