It’s funny how I have gotten into the habit of writing here every day. As I am approaching my fourth anniversary of starting my blog, I think of all the time and energy that I put into posting each morning here and it boggles my mind. If someone were to approach me four years ago and tell me that this was my ‘assignment’, I don’t think that I could have pulled it off. But looking back, I realize just how important posting here has been to me on so many levels. Thro...
The weekend seemed to go by in a whirlwind. Finally it appears that we are getting above freezing temperatures and that the warmer weather may be here to stay. While it rained all day on Saturday, it was beautiful and bright and sunny and it looks as if today may be the same. I am so ready for it. I was incredibly busy over the weekend. Not only did I have several orders for wood kits, but I also had some large printed orders that needed to be prepared and filled. Our business is defin...
I had quite a full day yesterday. However, I have no new pictures of my project to show you. For yesterday was one of those ‘maintenance’ days where I needed to get some everyday things done, take a breath and catch up with life. As the weather gets warmer, more and more of those days will come. I think I need them to come. While I like being able to stay here in my home and create, I do miss getting out in the real world and experiencing all that it has to offer. Not every...
I am about 80% functional in my attached garage. I would like to salute all of you that work in smaller shops. I know many of you think that 20×20 is not a small shop. I assure you it is if you build bigger items and were used to over 4 times that much space. I have much more organizing to do, but I feel very cramped. I am used to having several stacks of different lumber available in the shop at all times. Oh well, it sounds too much like whining now. I have nearly completed the firs...

I don’t know why, but I think the long, cold winter has me longing for spring. Today is the first day of the week that the sun is shining, and there is not a cloud in the sky. While there is still a touch of frost on the grass, I find myself being grateful for each day that passes with no snow. It may seem funny to be thinking like that in April, but for most people this year has been particularly brutal. I personally love the snow, but I think that even I have had my fill and am ...
Today’s post will be a short one. I was really thrilled that so many people commented on yesterday’s blog where I posted the “test” kitties using beautiful paper that I printed myself and DecoArt's Decoupage Medium. I had lots of questions regarding techniques and supplies and I pretty much spent the day answering questions and working on a new pattern using this method. Although this can be applied to just about anything you wish, I think that many of you lik...
I’ll start off by saying that I am running late today. After getting up at 4am yesterday, I stayed up until after midnight and I guess something had to give because I didn’t get my butt out of bed until nearly 8am this morning! For me, that may as well be noon. But I think I needed the extra rest and we just need to move on from here. I have lots of pictures to show you today. I had a great day yesterday ‘playing’ with a product that is probably not that ‘n...
It’s funny how even though we weren’t able to make the trip to Saratoga Springs, I still feel like I was falling behind with things. I think that all the planning and packing and anticipation of leaving home for a week really took a toll on me. Fortunately, I had met all my deadlines with my magazine prior to leaving. That was one thing off of my mind. Another good thing was that we made sure that our wholesalers were in good shape and that they were completely updated with al...
Today is going to be a busy day. I spent my Sunday catching up on some things that I neglected. I was also researching some new designing possibilities which I am very excited about. There is so many new and exciting ways to create! The internet really opens a whole world of possibilities for us as far as creating. I must admit, I got lost in my cyber-adventures of inspiration. One thing leads to another and before I know it, I have spent an hour or two looking at some incredible idea...
