Rested and refreshed the wife and I headed back to the Art and Antique sale with renewed vigor. One day of slow (actually nonexistent) sales wouldn’t deter us from putting a fine box in the hands of every American. When we pulled our trusty Ford F-150 into the venue there were plenty of parking spaces. Hmmm…. we arrived at the same time as yesterday and had to squeeze into a spot then. Is this an omen that the crowds on Saturday were much larger than we’d find today? ...
I had some interest from fellow Lumberjocks to let them know how the sales were at the show this weekend. Here’s a lengthy recap. You may want to get some snacks now or visit the restroom before proceeding. Day one of art show box sales is in the books. Day two is tomorrow. Let’s start at the beginning. Boxguy came up with a bright idea months ago, that he and I team up and present our boxes to the world at a local art show. I agreed and the wheels were set in motion. ...

What is a PechaKucha? I was excited to receive an invitation by Collaborative Design Architects to make a presentation at the most recent PechaKucha in Billings. I am sure you are wondering what this strange word is. First let me explain how it is pronounced: peh-CHAK-cha. This is a Japanese term which loosely translates as “chit chat” (as was shared with me.) A PechaKucha is an event for creative people to share their work with the public. I use the term “creative ...
I just received news last night that I have been accepted into the “Fall into the Arts” show to be held in early October. I am flattered to be included in a juried art show. I have never shown or sold my work before. I have donated pieces for charity auctions and given away pieces as gifts. I need help from my fellow Lumberjocks. I need to select 2 pieces to be entered for judging. Any suggestions on which of my pieces might show best would be greatly appreciated. I also welcom...
