Tuesday Toolsday Giveaway: The End of an Era

To enter last Toolsday’s giveaway, you had to identify a weird-looking vise with two sharp tongs hanging from it. We had an interesting variety of answers, everything from an ice-block carrier to a grape press. Good guesses, but they’re wrong. The mystery tool was a skull trephine, which is a ancient medical device used to drill holes in a skull to relieve pain and abnormalities. Luckily, today we can just use aspirin. 

We randomly picked one winner out of all last week’s comments and that lucky person is Jeanne C, who thought it was a brain squisher, Sort of close. Congrats Jeanne, you win, you have exactly one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

So how do you like the blog’s new look?  Pretty snazzy, hah? Let us know your opinion and tell us what you’d like to see on Made and ReMade — we’re all ears.

Now that we’re starting this new chapter in our blog history, we’re going to give the Tuesday Toolsday Giveaway a bit of a rest, just for a little while until we think of a new game to play.

Stay tuned and in the meantime, happy DIYing.

    Does your organization have a residential district business relative strategy? You'll need one. You have to join the actual team, town and sustain your relations along with other nearby businesses. There are lots of ways to get this done, one would be to join the local chamber associated with commerce, yet only usually 10% from the proprietors of smaller businesses ever do that. You ought to be in the very best ten % shouldn't a person? http://www.afterbusinesscommunity.com/

    I don't like the new format at all. It is VERY slow to download, and difficult to find things. Some computer geeks need to be slapped until they realize that "newer" is not always better.
