    I need a new snow shovel, and that would be perfect for a $20 gift card to Home Depot. I live in an 1885 brick and marble Victorian in Holyoke and have had to do a LOT of work on the place since I moved in seven years ago. The next project is to go around and plastic-seal all the windows. They're still half done from last winter, but finishing the job is crucial, both to the final heating bill and also just for comfort, because those big old windows let in a lot of cold air. I've got HUGE windows, and about fifty of them....

He goes there once a week and buys one tool so he can build up his collection and for work. For Christmas and Birthdays that is all he ever asks for is a gift card to Home Depot every year. He love this:)

    Current project I'm working on is a cat tree. I've got the posts and platforms in place, and I'm working on covering a concrete tube form with fuzzy fleece for a little enclosed sleeping area. Still have to wrap the posts in sisal and the platforms in fabric, but I'm getting there. Hopefully it'll be done by Christmas! Thanks for the giveaway, we're always working on a project so it would definitely be much appreciated and put to use immediately!
