What do you get the #DIY guy in your life? The one who can create, build, recreate, and rebuild everything? Mychanic! #gifts #AD TurnYourOwnWrench @Mychanic

I think you all know by now that Cassidy is the ultimate DIY guy!

He’s the handiest-dandiest guy I know. He always finds genius ways to design, fix, create, build, rebuild, start from scratch, dream, and put plans into action. It’s sort of astonishing, actually. You never know what you’re going to find at our house.

It might be a chicken palace!

Or a giant tree costume he made in six days.

How about a vertical pallet garden?


Or a garden racetrack for Des.

He sometimes says, after the latest harebrained scheme, that maybe he will take a break from all of this creating and dreaming and planning. I really hope he never does! I knew what I was getting into long before I married him. On our first date, in Maine, I confessed that my car was way overdue for an oil change and I was worried it wouldn’t make it back to NYC. I had lost a car that way! I figured that this guy I barely knew would either think I was foolish, or try to find a mechanic. The problem? It was a holiday weekend and a Sunday at that! That’s when he surprised me, for the first time.

He got everything he needed at an auto supply store and gave my car an oil change right then and there.

When I saw him go under the car, I knew it was real. He was REALLY doing a DIY oil change, and he seemed to care about me too. That was convenient, because the sentiment was mutual. I love that we began that way, and with moose in Maine!

Years later, I care about him even more. I get stumped when it’s his birthday, or the holidays, or Father’s Day, or our anniversary, because I always have trouble thinking of gifts for him. What do you get the guy who has – or can build – nearly everything? That’s where MYCHANIC steps in! They have an amazing and useful variety of products using bold ideas, multi-purpose functions, and smart designs. We have the Sidekick Stool. It’s pretty awesome to see him using it around here!

What does it do? It helps you stop straining your back and crushing your knees in your garage! With the Sidekick Stool, you can glide around your project in comfort (and style) and have all of your needed tools within reach. This gorgeous rolling tool chest stool combines plenty of space to keep tools handy, with a comfortable deep-cushioned rolling seat to keep you off the ground. With 450 lbs of capacity, this stool is built to hold a lot of dude, and a lot of tools! You can keep everything at your fingertips! Remember to always follow recommended safety guidelines.

The thing is, the other day was a rare day without rain! Cassidy usually works inside our garage, although with the chickens temporarily being displaced there, it can be a racket! I was super happy to see him using the Sidekick Stool on the driveway. The stool’s heavy-duty steel frame is rugged and powder coated for weather resistance. Then, I was shocked to see him using it in the garden too! Apparently, he has found multi-purpose functions for this garage essential. Pretty cool, right?

With two padded drawers, a removable tool rack and magnetic trays, it’s no wonder he has found great uses for it! So what do you get the guy who seems to have everything? What do you get the DIYer in your life who needs garage essentials to make projects easier? Get the Sidekick Stool! It has 3″ rubber swivel casters for quick movement. It has two smooth gliding ball-bearing drawer slides for quick and easy access. And, it has foldable magnetic trays to keep loose nuts and bolts at your DIY guy’s fingertips. The tool rack can be removed for when you need it (or don’t) and the deep-cushion seat is comfortable.

It’s even comfy for the longest jobs.

Happy Gift Giving!

I think it’s safe to say by now that we’re a quirky, creative family – with a taste for the unique, fun, and creative. I think it’s safe to say that I LOOOOVE Nightmare Before Christmas and that we love Star Wars. That’s an understatement, actually!

I mean, that’s how we met!

Apollo Box

This post? It’s about celebrating the finer and quirkier things in life. It’s about complete awesomeness. When I stumbled upon Apollo Box, it was like a dream come true. Not only did I fall in love with the creative, fun, and unique collection of products, but it helped my “Gift-Giving Paralysis.” This is a self-titled, self-diagnosed “condition” in which you get so overwhelmed by gift-giving and want everything to be PERFECT, that your brain freezes and you can’t think of anything! Doesn’t that sound awful? I have lived with this for most of my life, but it’s getting better. You know why, right?

Where else can you find..?

Star Wars items even the most Star Wars-loving person you know probably doesn’t have?

FOOD, of course!

Apollo Box is an online shopping platform that celebrates the act of discovery. Apollo Box is dedicated to providing customers with creative products and unique gifts they can get excited about. With their AR shopping feature in the Apollo Box app, they designed a new way to play and share virtual products before you buy them. Now, we talk water bottles.

The Gradient Glass Water Bottle is beautifully painted for travel. The vivid gradiated colors give the soft look of watercolor. The bottle is thin enough to take everywhere, and has a leak-proof, screw-on lid. It can hold 11 ounces of your favorite beverage, and the solid glass withstands temps up to 176 F degrees! Also, it has awesome lettering!

Right now, there’s a 15% OFF coupon code valid for ALL products – and for a month long – for registered users. The coupon code is “TAMARA”. Don’t forget that one! Remember, you can use it sitewide for all of the wondrous things. 15% off!

The Apollo Box is passionate about their products. They decided to build their own personal shopping platform when they couldn’t find a good place to shop online for these fun, creative, and unique kinds of products. They believe shopping should be fun, and they work with small vendors from all over the world to share products and share stories. To make shopping with them even more fun, they have created an innovative augmented reality (AR) shopping platform. With this technology, you can engage and play with a virtual 3D model of the products in your environment before you buy them.

You can snap pictures and share with friends! It’s just so cool!
