Woodworking, one of humanity’s oldest crafts; from Ancient Egypt and China to modern day art, working with wood has been a backbone to our lives. Whether you are in a woodworking profession or just enjoy it as a hobby, you are creating something magical and that should be celebrated! From building a few simple pine boxes to a custom long bow to even a picnic table that seats six, the variety that can be made with woodworking is absolutely visionary!
For me, woodworking will always be close to my heart. Before I was born, my grandmother (yes, grandmother!) made my mom a beautiful hope chest made out of cedar with some beautiful medallion inlays. I’ve had my eyes on it forever, it actually makes me glad I’m an only child because I know I won’t have to fight over who gets it! My grandmother unfortunately passed away before I could learn woodworking from her but it sparked in me an appreciation for the patience, dedication, and hard work it takes to create something majestic. Which is something I still carry with me to this day.

Do you enjoy cooking? How about aprons? Then you must be a fan of the Cooking Apron
, right? I love aprons andI love to eat yummy delicious food, but it’s usually when someone else has prepared it. It’s not that I can’t cook or that I don’t enjoy cooking, it more has to do with nothaving the time to devote to creating a gourmet meal.
When I had more time on my hands, I loved to host or be invited to cooking parties. Everyone would bring a dish to cook, from appetizers to desserts and we’d all stand around the kitchen in our aprons, drinking wine or beer or whatever was in the cupboard.
Most of the girls and guys were wearing the most amazingly beautiful, cool and funky looking aprons. It almost verged on a contest to see who would be wearing the best apron in the kitchen that week. Aside from a little apron fashionista competition, we all had loads of fun cooking and drinking and eating all day long. We usually managed to keep our clothing clean too. Those were the days.
Now whenever I’m in a shop that has cooking aprons, I always get excited. The aprons generally have the best designs and colors and I also think it reminds me of a time that was filled with delicious food and great company.
Aprons also make wonderful gifts. They’re usually inexpensive, can be personalized and generally tend to make the chefs in our lives smile gleefully at the thought of wearing one. So the next time you’re at a loss as to what to get your friend for their birthday, worry no more. Pick up the coolest aprons in the shop. One for them and one for you and may delicious dishes come your way. Bon Appetite!
