Okay, yes, I do have a slightly unhealthy attachment to my drill. I admit it. Just like I admit you probably shouldn’t get me within three feet of any tool that I can buy, borrow, or snatch out of somebody’s hands and run away with. So when the folks at The Family Handyman magazine asked me to write about my favorite tools for them, I jumped at the chance to have a legitimate reason to continue to expand my tool collection.
See, I need that mini-lathe. I’m doing a public service here.
I wrote an article about The Makita a few months ago and shortly thereafter was asked to provide an updated rendition of the La Femme Makita picture–something I took quickly one evening after working on the house all day and which I suspected would be used as a tiny little image in the byline.
So imagine my surprise when I saw this…
So. That’s… larger, than expected.
Giselle I am not. However, I might have taken a brush to my hair if I knew just how prominent my head would be on this page. Or, given some of the horrendous pictures I’ve posted of myself on this website, maybe not.
Regardless, I’m a huge fan of The Family Handyman magazine so it’s incredibly awesome and fun to be working with them, and writing about things I love. Starting in the February issue you can expect to see me make a monthly appearance there. But I got way smarter about the picture this time.
(Also, big thanks to readers Kate H. and Lisa from JustOerTheRiver for giving me the heads up the November issue was out!)
