Wow! Thanks everybody! Really appreciate the welcome!

I’m trying this morning to get myself organized to write a little in my profile about who I am. Just a tiny bit for now k?
My name is Connie Carey.. hence the “CC” part… LOL.. I live in Campbell, Ca. Raised in the area although born in Detroit, MI. Moved to Ca when I was 7. So because I’m 54 that pretty much makes me a Ca girl. Although I remember the cold and humid in Mi.
I’ve been relief carving for a few years. I use a Foredom power tool and also I am a pyrographer.. love that word.. just means I like to burn pictures in wood…
Currently I’m working on a relief carving of a boat and harbor scene that somewhat resembles Port Townsend, Wa. Which was our hailing Port when we lived aboard out lovely sailboat “Tyree”..
I am so very impressed by the pieces y’all have made. Real talent here, just beautiful!! Was a real treat to find this site.
Thanks again.. Chat soon and I’ll try to get some pictures up asap. Just was able to buy a new laptop but everything isn’t transferred to it yet.. like my pictures.. duh..

Best to all,

Welcome! I’m sorry to hear of the accident and I hope you recover properly. Surgery seems scary but it sounds like you’ve been through it enough to not be to bothered. I look forward to seeing your carvings and projects. If you have any questions just let them fly. Someone here will be able to help you.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Thanks Rj…

I appreciate your email! I’ve been not able to do too much on my carving because I’m still recouping from my ankle/foot/toes (LOL boy that looks bad written) surgery Feb. 11th. My husband built me a lovely table to use while in the wheel chair, however my foot swells so quickly when not elevated. sighhhhhhh… I’m getting some days in but not enough. It’s on my mind constantly. So what I’ve been doing is making patterns for new carving.
I’ll for sure put some questions out there for help, basically very much a newbie at all of this.. but.. I love it.. and I’m hooked!

Best to you and yours!
