Couples Therapy: Building the Eiffel Tower

Many people ask us how we keep our marriage working. The simple answer is we do things together. Sometimes we pick what I like to do and other times we pick what Peg likes to do and sometimes we combine likes to do something totally different. On this craft adventure we combined Peg's love for all things Paris with my crafty nature of building things. Behold, Creatology's Eiffel Tower Wooden Puzzle.

Sure puzzles make for some quality couple time but 3-D puzzles are a little more challenging. The puzzle came on three laser cut boards. We popped all the pieces out and arranged them neatly on a folding table. After matching the pieces to the pictures we soon had the base complete.

It took a bit of teamwork to align the next pieces but quickly our structure began to look like the Eiffel Tower.

The total time to assemble and glue the 3D puzzle took a little over an hour. After letting the tower dry for a day, we spray painted it using a hammer tone finish. Now we have a lovely knickknack to display on our shelf.

Try some quality time together assembling a puzzle. Being together will give you a chance to talk about what is happening in your lives. And, don't forget to HAVE FUN!

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.


Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
