Talk about feeling the power. Last week, I spent a wonderful and inspiring day with the folks from Craftsman and a fabulous, patient crew of instructors who taught me new terms, skills and technology.
They really pumped up my DIY mojo and I look forward to tackling projects at Casa de Renovation. After lunch, the team showed us a variety of new/up and coming Nextec power hand tools, and I'll be damned if I couldn't put each of those things to work the minute I got them home. #gadgetlust
No, the bloggers did not receive the whole line, but I do have two goodies heading my way that will likely show up in some form at Reluctant Renovator. But before I think too much about building up our workshop, we have to tear down the walls that surround it in order to locate the foundation crack. :-/
Check out a few highlights:
|@MissLori swears she didn't purposely dress to match the goody bag.|
|@HollyConrad's project could not have been a bigger hit.|
|Holly simultaneously rocks a skirt, legwarmers and a band saw. #awesome|
|I rock the double chin and the band saw.|
|@CC_Chapman simply rocks; check out that ogre knife.|
|Event Tweets referencing "stripping, sawing and corn-holing" can be attributed to @CondoBlues|
|@RedneckMommy tackles the most challenging task of the day.|
Disclosure: I was not required to post about this event. All opinions are my own. I received a wrench-like Craftsman bottle opener, a Craftsman rain poncho, a tin of Garrett's popcorn(!), a box of Frango mints(!) and a few other items in addition to lunch and an ogre sword which, in case you missed it, I MADE MYSELF, albeit with Craftsman's tools and supplies.
