Even though I spent most of the day yesterday drawing, I am still not finished with the last sets of designs for the calendar. I really wanted to be, but it just didn’t happen. I took time choosing my subjects and it wasn’t as easy as I initially would have thought. I still have the months of November and December to finish up and I hope to do so today. Sometimes when I have too many choices it gives me more of a problem then when I am not sure what I will be doing. With so ...
I am still working on drawing up the new sets for the calendar project. I spent the majority of the day doing as much and I am making good progress. Hopefully, I can finish up today and then tomorrow will be a day of cutting the pieces out and then on to writing the instructions. I made a little sample picture to show you: Today is just one of those days that I am short on words. I don’t know if that is a bad thing, or a good thing. I am quite focused on completing this assig...
Yesterday was one of those days that seemed to be over just after it began. It seemed like I was just getting warmed up when it started to get dark and the sun was setting. I spent much of the day working on the next installment of the calendar project that I am doing for the magazine. This is the third and final part of a calendar topper that I am creating with interchangeable figures that are held on with magnets. The idea is to keep the base of the topper (which the calendar hangs fr...
It seems that most of yesterday was spent catching up with things and getting back to normal. Being offline for the day caused me to really get behind in my emails and computer things. While I accomplished a lot on the saw Saturday, there was a lot of stuff that I needed to do on the website that took a bit of time. One area on the site that I can’t seem to keep up with is the place where I show other customer’s photos. I have decided to look into a way to simplify how that ...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #583: A Day Without Communication - Making Lemonade from Lemons
So you all thought I took the day off? I suppose that you could say that, although it wasn’t a choice of mine. It seems that the black cat must have really put her spell on my on Friday the 13th after all. Around 8pm Friday night the unthinkable happened – my internet went down. All of a sudden, I was getting the dreaded “server not found” error on my screen. When Keith checked his computer, it was the same thing. We fiddled with our modem a while and then I de...
Yesterday winter arrived here in Nova Scotia with a vengeance! It arrived with a few flakes starting to fall in the early afternoon and within a couple of hours, the snow was blowing sideways and building up in drifts. It made me rather happy. I am not quite sure why I like the cold and snow so much. I think it has to do with the coziness of curling up with the kitties all wrapped in a blanket. I have good memories of playing in the snow too, and of enjoying outdoor winter sports like ...

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I packed up and moved my house and my shop from Denver to Virginia. And it seems longer still since I’ve spent any real quality time here on LJ! Mostly, I guess that’s because my shop is still sitting in boxes in my smaller garage here in the hinterlands of Culpeper county. And since I still can’t fit a car in the garage under the best possible conditions it’s a safe bet I’m not doing any woodworking...
these were the shelves i posted under my projects after i finished my stain and installed. They fit nicely on each wall and completed the living room quite easily.
