One event I do not want to miss is the Capital Home & Garden Show at the Dulles Expo on February 22-25. I enjoy the ideas, inspiration and the ability to consult with home improvement specialists. Mostly, it's eye-candy for my decorating soul.
I recently purchased Be Jane's book and love the concept of a home improvement/repair book for women. You also read stories of women and their home improvement projects and desires for future projects.
After reading this book, I feel like I can take on just about any home improvement project. And working with tools is so empowering. I'm even looking forward to playing with my hubby's new miter saw.
