This pipe planter is one of the most fun crafts I’ve done in a while. It combines reclaimed materials and pipe pieces in a clever, simple way. I found these trapezoid panels of wood at a lumber salvage and knew I could up-cycle them with ease. Using re-purposed materials always makes me happy.

Tips for beginner drag racers from driver Molly Straight: 1. Keep your head in the game. Don’t let the intimidation of the other drivers get to you. Drag racing has a lot to do with your attitude and mentality. 2. You have to learn to lose to win, especially in bracket racing. 3.

Grandparents are such a treasure in life. They are a source of knowledge, love, and a bit of spoiling. Remember to give them a call or squeeze them extra tight today. “My children were brought up with their grandparents, and I was brought up with my grandparents. I think the continuity of moving through life together gives people a certain pride and sense of security.” –Francesca Annis
