My friends from college and I all live in the New Hampshire/Massachusetts area. We try to meet up every few months for an activity, because we are precious like that. We have done pasta making, a cooking class, concerts, and our latest adventure was a woodworking class!

I will be honest, I did not think I would thrive in a woodworking class. First of all, there is the fear of splinters. Second of all, to say I am not crafty is a major understatement. I can barely draw a stick figure properly! But it's all in the name of fun so I said "Why the heck not?! "

The time came for me to select a project on the Board and Brush website. There are SO MANY OPTIONS!

My friend Shea chose a planter for her porch:

Samantha chose a sign with hooks for leashes and other doggie accoutrement. Are you surprised I knew that word? ME TOO!

And then there's me, who decided to make a "Greenberger Brewing Company" sign for my husband Steven for his bday. He doesn't have a man cave yet, but when we buy a house, he will (and for now it can live over our mini-fridge).

The staff was so helpful. They truly guide you through the entire process from distressing and sanding the wood, to stenciling, and everything in between. It's a ton of fun!

I am so proud of the end result, and still can't believe I made it with my own two hands:
