American Girl Dollhouse Accessories 3D Printed

3D Printed Dollhouse Accessories

My daughter and I share the love of creating. While my version of creation might have me covered in woodchips or grease, my daughter is keen to painting, coloring and modeling clay. I guess, in a way, one could call us “Makers.” But I’ve always envisioned a “maker” as someone who is building circuits, programming … Continue Reading


Install a 3-Way Lamp Switch

Click…click…click. Click. Click-click. That’s the sound of a lamp with a three-way bulb. It was my grandfather trying to find the right level of light to read by. I think one almost never gets it right the first time. So you turn it on…up…up. Off. Then you realize two clicks will get you there. I … Continue Reading

BenQ treVolo Bluetooth Speaker Review

My wife has a record. Well, quite a few of them. No, not the Guinness-kind-of-record. The plasticky-vinyl-kind-of-record. You know. Rappity-rappers use to scratch on them. Your parents had them, or (gasp) …grandparents had them. An LP. Anyway, I recently got her one. Apparently they’re making a comeback. Oh and it was Miles Davis’ Kind of … Continue Reading


Lawn Fertilizer Challenge – Part 2

So this is where our fescue fracas ends. The results of Pete and I fertilizing half of our lawns, having the lawns look kinda dumb for a month or so, and seeing who grew the best blades. If you got this far and are like “huh?,” then check out part 1 here. If you got … Continue Reading


DIY Container Garden

In case you didn’t see, Pete and I are having a little spring challenge to grow the best lawn.

This … Continue Reading


Strollin’ with Target

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Target. It’s not a typical post because we’re not talking about tools or DIY, but we do have “dad” in our title and we do actually talk about fatherhood from time-to-time, so they asked me to discuss my take on fatherhood and style. Little did they know I only … Continue Reading


Mancave Makeover

What’s a mancave? I first think of some air-conditioned space full of leather recliners, with at least one each of the following: Beer dispenser or beer storage en masse Some kind of frat boy, high-fivin’ game Lighted neon sign(s) Flat-screen tv(s) Sports memorabilia or theme Every other sentence in the room starts or ends with … Continue Reading

MightyMug Is Dad’s coffee so strong that his wussy little travel mug is having a hard time containing it? Put that old mug out … Continue Reading


Lawn Fertilizer Challenge

Ahhh…Spring. A time to break out the tools. Tools that cut, blow, edge and mow all the things that grow. So, Pete and I are having a little dad-ly challenge. A cultivation contest…a blade bash…fertilizer feud…or a “grass-off” of sorts. To ensure we have stuff to cut, blow and mow, we’re gonna fertilize our lawns … Continue Reading


Fixing Dents and Painting an Exterior Door

Kung fu for my déjà vu. That’s what I wanted to call this post. It’s because I’ve been here before. My front door. Oh, how I’ve fixed your dents and painted you. And then… Skateboard, skateboard, dog, dog, groceries, keys, stroller, surfboard, lumber, lumber, kid, kid, kid, kid, neighbor’s kid and scooter happened. Times 365. … Continue Reading
