Proportion – evaluates the relationship or ratio of parts to the whole.
Rhythm – speaks to the flow within a room and throughout your home.
Balance – is equilibrium though symmetry (mirror images from a center point), asymmetry (optically varying items from a central point to achieve balance), or radial (equilibrium based on the circle).
Harmony – is creating a feeling of suitability through unifying elements and objects and adding variety for interest and diversity. The objective is to create an agreeable, appealing whole that won’t tire in the long-run.

Here is the bench without the paint and final touches. I love it!
Of course you need to go to Ana White's site to find these FREE plans.
All she is asks is for you to share the pics of your project when completed.
We had quite a bit of fun putting the finishing touches on this bench for Oma.
Each of the grandkids put their name on the bench.
Now I will need to poly it a few times and it will be done.
It already came in very handy when we had to do the company pics this year.
so Merry Christmas from me and everyone at Ecomony Electric too!

The wood is measured
and cut to size including the notches.
One set of legs done. They are not as flush as I would like them to be but a good first time try.
and also my first attempt at cutting angles.
By far the hardest part of this project.
Finally a paint finish and I will finish by posting my finshed product tomorrow...

There is nothing quite like sitting around the Christmas Tree
with all the people that you love.
And the kids are getting so big that we have a big table set out just for them.
They all kinda out-number us all now.
But are they not absolutely gorgeous.
What a great looking bunch.
As the children get a little older they are starting to catch on to the joy of giving instead of just receiving.
Also not forgetting to show their thanks with gi-normous hugs.
and kids too for that matter.
Another highlight was the length of time it took some of the kids to open their presents.
Thanks for that Uncle Al.

Yes I did another project. However, this time on a much smaller scale....
I have so enjoyed learning how to create things out of wood. When I found out that Josiah had Sierran's name for Christmas this year and that she wanted a doll I couldn't resist the urge to try a small piece of furniture. When I stumbled upon this blog Pieces For Reese's I knew I had everything I needed to make the perfect gift.
Since Sierran is now 6 it was important to make her a big girl's bunkbed with a big girl doll.
It appears as though it was a successful.
In fact, before I left we had to go into Sierran's room and we had a photo shoot with
the bed and the doll
Sierran and yes Aunt Marlene too.
A wonderful day with family and a very happy little girl.
