For expert tips and ideas on everything "wood", check out the "The Wood Whisperer" blog! A last minute gift idea for the woodworker in the family may be this movie he recently reviewed - "Woodshop". A bit on the cheesy, corny side, but for those into wood, it might be a good laugh!

DIY Home Energy Assessment

The last thing we want to think about during the holidays is another project around the house.  However, taking the time to do a home energy assessment can potentially save you some serious cash in the New Year.  Check out the Dept. of Energy's DIY tips; many utility companies also offer in-home assessments for a small fee.

Get in the spirit of the season by making a wreath!

Wreaths are easy to make and don't have to cost a lot of money - you can find many parts of your wreath from your own backyard (pine cones, evergreens, holly bushes) or from decorations you already have (ribbons, bows, dried flowers) - the possibilities are endless!
