I'm a 70 year old lady that started building years ago because Anna gave me the confidence to try. Since I retired I have designed and built a desk/work surface, display shelves, a fire place mantel, and several other pieces. I am currently working on a mini outhouse for storage in my bathroom. I have followed her for many years visiting the site at least once a day. I actually cried when she posted pictures of the vanilla kitchen. It's been a long haul. I love her plans and reommendations for supplies and tools. I only wish I had a use for more furniture. I'm still waiting for an easy rocking chair for my porch. I enjoy many other crafts and do small shows. I also make Christmas decorations, sew, and crochet.
