Well, I guess I’ve hit 4 years at It all began with a curiosity about woodworking and just wanting to make a box – any box.

The curiosity connected me with I immediately saw something different and felt very comfortable at the site, being able to find my way around easily. I also found a great group of people who encouraged me and tutored me and the journey began.

It wasn’t long before I started envisioning the possibilities for and I shared an idea or two with Martin. Through the messaging I discovered that our founder was a brilliant young man of integrity and I kind of took it upon myself to help him achieve the greatness that I saw in his future.

The rest is history and I think, with the CreativeHands sites joining Escalate Media, the possibilities are reaching even greater heights than I had envisioned. And now, I look forward to what the future holds for the sites.

As to my woodworking, I recently completed the “shoe carving challenge” and that was really exciting. I’m sure we will have more classes in the future and I look forward to participating.

And then there is the other part of my life, my home and family life. At the same time that LumberJocks joined Escalate Media I also found out that I am going to be a grandmother again. My daughter (who lives just 10 minutes away) is expecting her first child in June. In a few years I’ll be searching our site to find ideas of woodworking ideas for toddlers :)

Hello 2011 – what a great year it is so far!
