Today is my Blogger-Versary.
Where are my damn flowers?!?!

I leave for Tool Camp tomorrow morning. I should pack some snacks and clean undies.

Am not bringing my laptop with me but will bring my camera and phone. Maybe I’ll finally figure out that whole “mobile blog” thing. Or not. I’ll have my blackberry with me too so any comments posted on my blog will forward over to my blackberry – but I won’t be able to respond to them till I return. Also, not sure my blackberry will even get reception up there. Big Adventure!

In case you want to know more about Yestermorrow…here is their mission statement and some pictures from their website:


The Yestermorrow Design/Build School
Mission Yestermorrow Design/Build School inspires people to create a better, more sustainable world by providing hands-on education that integrates design and craft as a creative, interactive process.

Philosophy Yestermorrow’s courses are specifically designed to demystify the designing and building processes using hands-on, experiential learning to teach students the art and wisdom of good design and the skill and savvy of enduring craftsmanship as a single, integrated process.
This creative process offers students unique insight into the oftentimes disparate worlds of the architect and the builder. Architects are routinely trained without any building experience that might inform their designs, and builders are trained to execute without a sense of the overarching purpose or design of the project.

View current course listings.

Yestermorrow Design/Build School is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational institution. Yestermorrow does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color or creed.
