Better Homes and Gardens Big News Plus Still Hoping

OK, we (meaning anyone I know with computer skills) have tried almost everything to recovery the pictures and video off my hard drive. We have one last option we are trying  so wish us luck!!
In the meantime we have continued to work on the basement and prepare for Christmas!

But I found out some news today that I could not  pass up sharing!!
Starting today on news stands everywhere you can check out a Specialty publication from Better Homes and Gardens called "I DID IT".

They picked their favorite I Did It stories and complied them into one publication. And surprise I was picked to be in it!!! I am suppose to be on page 65! I haven't seen it, but I am heading out to go check it out!! So let me know if you see it and what you think!!
Supper Excited!!!

Basement - More Detail and the Great Disaster!

Good morning!
I was so excited yesterday to be ahead of the game!
I had finished editing my video for this week and was ready to write this post.
That's when my computer froze up!
Nothing would work.
So I turned it off like most of us would,
it never came back on.
I called my tech guy who thought it a simple fix, until he got here and looked and looked at it.
He took the computer apart and checked all the cables and connections and put it back together multiply times.
The verdict?
My hard drive went out!!
It is not even a year old, there are not signs of electrical damage.
Just went out!
The best part is I didn't have enough money at the time I bought the computer so I didn't have a back up yet!
So enjoy this last video I made cause it may be the last for awhile.
All my most recent video clips and photo's of the basement are gone!
Here is the hope, 
that the hard drive was defective. That the manufacturer will replace it and recover my data. 
Otherwise there is just going to be a big divide between the video journey of our basement!!

Well enjoy this final video for now.
 Please be patient as I am using an others computer for this post.
There may not be any posts  for awhile as I try to get this sorted  out!!
Now excuse me as I will be drowning my sorrows at my favorite thrift store DI!

Basement - Little Details that make a Big Difference!

Sorry I am late posting this week!!
 have been working so hard Les, actually took yesterday off so we could get a little more done before Thanksgiving. 
That's great but that meant I didn't get my video and post done!
Sad Face.
But here it is a little late.
Today I want to show you just some of the details that make the finish product look good and how I used scraps of wood to create my projects.
Like these ones I found at the Restore.

Better late than never!!
