It is a beautiful and sunny Wednesday morning here in Nova Scotia. One would expect to open the window and hear the birds chirping cheerfully, welcoming the dawning of another spectacular day. But that isn't really the case (yet!). There is still about two feet of snow on the ground and although the sky is clear and the sun bright, it will be just a while longer until we find ourselves rid of the snow and able to see the grass beneath and open the windows fully. But patience will pay off ...
No matter how long I have been doing woodworking, it seems that I am always learning something new. Most of the time, too, this knowledge comes when I need something or stumble onto something while I am focusing on something else. It is kind of cool. This weekend I spent creating some new things for my grand daughter, Willow. Willow is about 18 months old now, and really at a 'busy' age. I thought it would a nice to send her some cute and simple puzzles for Easter.I have...

We awoke this morning to yet another "blizzard". I have lost count as to how many blizzards we have already had this season. They forecast it yesterday, and I laughed mockingly to myself thinking – "here we go again, with all these scare tactics." Keith went to Halifax yesterday He had to go pick up a few things. Usually I would take the trip with him – especially now when I have been pretty much tied to the house for the past three months – b...
Good day to everyone. Today is going to be another one of those 'odds and ends' days. I really think that the entire week will be like that. After getting so many little things accomplished over the weekend, I think I am on a roll and while I have other designs in mind, I really want that progress to continue. It feels so good seeing things finding their place around here, and while most people moan and groan a bit about organizing, I think that once we start the organizational ball r...
It was still dark when I first awoke today. As I was going through my morning emails, I heard the sound of the plow going by on the road. Once again it had snowed. We were supposed to get 10cm of additional snow on Saturday evening, but that never really materialized. We got some snow here and there, but it didnt' really stick much, as the warmer temperatures are trying to work their way here, but keep being pushed back by the unrelenting cold winter air that isn't quite ready to...
I debated on writing today because I am not sure if I have anything very interesting to discuss today. After putting in some really long hours the past week or so, I think it is time for me to take a breath. I had to smile to myself when someone who placed an order put a note that said how anxious they were for the patterns. It really made me feel good to know that the hard work I invested was appreciated and people like the design. It isn't always like that. I am not mentioning this...
Today I am revealing the fourth and final new trinket box pattern that I created over the weekend. I was really pleased with all the kind reponses that I have received regarding them. It feels good to make something that people seem to like so much. I spent the day yesterday writing up the pattern packets for these projects. I tried to include some step-by-step photos so that even newer scrollers would be able to make the projects successfully. Actually they aren't that difficult at ...
It is NOT snowing today.It is hazy and dull outside, and I can see the tops of the bare trees waving slightly in the breeze. There are still mountains of snow – some drifts 3-4 feet high – and they are no longer that beautiful pristine white, but rather rather dirty looking and grey. As I look out to my car, however, I notice that the banks of snow that surround it no longer have it completely encased. They have pulled back quite a bit, leaving a gap between the wall of snow and t...
It has been a while sense I have posted any thing. I hope not to be a stranger. Life is crazy with all the travel and all the other stuff that I do. It seems like I only have time for family and business. Just got back from the symposium. It was their first and it went great! Met lots of new people. I think my favorite moments are when I get to meet people who have been my clients for years and I get to meet them in person for the first time. and of course seeing old friends that I only ge...
