Google Docs and the Craft Corner Update

Okay.'s my first blog post using the Google document feature. Pretty cool stuff. I'm trying to think of how I can best use this tool.

I'll get back with you.

In other news, my dad came over yesterday and helped me get started on the 'craft corner' in our basement. I took some photos but haven't uploaded them yet. But...let me tell you, we made some GOOD progress. My wife and I moved tons of stuff out of the corner so we'd have room to work. [We installed new kitchen counter tops a couple years ago and we kept the old ones (for this project)].

After we moved all the stuff/junk out of the way, I laid out the counter tops on the floor to get an idea of what it would look when we are finished. It is going to be perfect. It's an L-shaped configuration that will give us a great surface to work on. We will be able to sew, stamp, sort through old photographs, etc., etc., It is going to be great.

I'm calling an electrician to see how much it will cost to have a couple lines brought in to the area. It's not that much distance from the breaker box to the corner, so hopefully it won't cost an arm and a leg. I'll keep you posted.

Have a great day!

UPDATE (01.17.08): The electrician gave me a very favorable quote on the work I want to have done. He'll be over tomorrow afternoon to install the new electric lines. Woo. Hoo. I am a happy camper!

Sounds good ... can't wait to see what it'll look like. Update us with pics every once in a while to see the work in progress.
