No, seriously, he makes all my stuff for me and I love that he does/will because I have seen some of the prices they want for some of that stuff and it is outrageously over-priced!

I'd love pics!

When we move into a bigger home and I have more space for stuff like shelving and locker style cubbies a guy that I know local that has the exact same name as you is going to be building all of my shelving and stuff too. Weird, I guess the name DH is more common that I thought .

MarinaVanessa I second Discount School Supply. I love getting my stuff from them and have a wishlist that I write everything that I want down and then save up for an item and buy the stuff on my list little by little. It's great quality stuff and it's made to last. The way I see it is this stuff (and stuff from other daycare and school suppliers) are made to be used over a long period of time in classrooms of 15+ kids so the furniture and toys really can take a beating and in my daycare of no more than 8 kids this stuff will last me a long time.

Lakeshore Learning stuff also. I was having to buy new dishes and playfood for the dramatic play area every 6 months or so until I just went out and bought a large set of play dishes and play food (multicultural) and I've had them for 3 years now and only last week was one cup cracked.
