Specially for you my dear friend Steliart!It took me 3 hours to clean the mess up, but here it is.I don’t do everything here on the attic. things like the top from the table project were inpossible.But i did alot here and i love the place. Downside it gets incredibly hot in the summer. And it’s not to big :)i insulated the wall for noice reduction, and the floor has 2 layers of subfloor.Still desperatly want a bigger and more accesable workplace, but for now it’s ok. ...
Well folks, its kind of the same old story. We’ve all heard the saying that “no news is good news” and I am happy to report that this is the case. It doesn’t make for very interesting blog reading, but it makes for a very, very happy Scrollgirl. We are at T-minus two days and all seems to be going well. As we get down to the nitty-gritty, there are still no disasters and it appears that everything is going as planned. Yesterday, upon inspecting the little skatin...
It’s getting to be that time. The final countdown. I wish I could say that I was sleeping a bit easier, but I think that the excitement is just too much. I awoke up earlier than I wanted to this morning and I almost went back to bed, but I had already had the first sip of coffee and it tasted soooo good that it wasn’t worth parting with it. Besides, I have lots to do today and an early start would probably be good. I finished most of my printing yesterday. I have a nice li...
I look around and there are “piles” everywhere. Piles of papers, patterns, wood pieces, etc. Even the cats know something is up, as Richard is flying back and forth through the house this morning like an idiot (well- as much as he can fly with a short runway!) Since I have sat down here this morning, he has ran the length of the apartment at full speed at least a dozen times, as if a rocket was lit under him. What a nut! It’s time to enlist one of the most important el...
”Time goes by so slowly for those who waitNo time to hesitateThose who run seem to have all the funI’m caught upI don’t know what to do” And running I am! I have never felt such exhilaration in preparing for a trip before. (And I mean that in a good way!) I am torn between wishing it would get here fast and knowing that it will pass so quickly that I want to take my time and enjoy every bit of it. I got to pick up my car yesterday from my mechanic. It is all...
Another piece of the puzzle has fallen into place – but not without effort. One of the last things that I needed to think about was to obtain paint brushes for both the painting class and the scrolling class. Back in the days, my favorite brush company was very supportive about providing brushes when I taught larger shows. Of course they didn’t send new brushes for every show I taught at, but every couple of years, if I were doing a larger show I could request paint brushes an...
Hiccups are a part of life, it seems. Yesterday things went pretty well, although it seems that there are always little things to get in the way. There was a time when I felt that I was ‘over-preparing’ for this little adventure, but as I get closer to the day of departure, I am happy that I have done things the way I have and have allowed a good buffer zone for these little things that come up. I know it will sound silly to some, but part of me has felt lazy in the past month...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #283: Where Did That Hour Go? I know It's Around Here Somewhere . . . .
“Daylight Savings Time” they call it. I am not really comfortable with it, as I much prefer the autumn when we turn the clocks back and gain an extra hour for the day. 25 hour days are good in my book. Not to mention that I got curious this morning and Wikipideia-ed it and spent another twenty minutes reading about it. After getting up while it is still dark for the past several months, I can’t help but feel like I am being lazy when I see the light streaming in my wind...
This was a project that I posted on youtube a while back which I had a lot of fun doing do I decided to share on LJ. Enjoy, Let me know if you have any questions.
Seen this on youtube, funny stuff. “All too typical discussion between a clueless guy with a walnut yard tree and a man who runs a sawmill” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agcLlKcXp40
