    MÖLKKY (Finnish Lawn Game)

    Today we are posting about the game Mölkky (a Finnish Lawn Game) that we made out of an old tree. If you follow our posts, you may have seen the amazing corn hole game my son’s father-in-law so thoughtfully made for us. We are so grateful, and knowing that he really enjoys corn hole, we wanted to create an outdoor game for him in return. At first, we were going to make a set of “Giant Jenga Blocks” but Sarah (his daughter) said they already have a Jenga game.

    DIY Pizza Pan Rack

    Today is about the DIY pizza pan rack we created out of scraps of wood we found in our workshop. Years ago, my kids bought me a small wood fire pizza oven that makes the pizza taste amazing!! We were hosting a surprise birthday party for my daughter-in-law, Janae and decided we would make “build your own” pizzas. We really wanted to host a “build your own style” party but space was a big issue. I had to fit 10 pans of pizza dough, toppings, sauces, and cheeses all on my counter. I searched around the internet before the party to see if I could purchase a small pizza pan…
