Thank you for your patience, understanding and support. Stay tuned for our relaunch and new project photos!
It appears that I will be down for a couple of days. On Wednesday, after the gym, it seems I pulled a muscle in my lower back. It kind of threw me for a loop.I am much too busy doing things to have something like this take me down. So many ideas! So many projects to develop! As I said on my Facebook page – when is a GOOD time to have this happen?But happen it did and for the next few days I need to really switch it to low gear and take is slow. That is so against my grain!As we get...
As a designer I feel that I am always learning something new. With so many new products available, it is always fun and exciting for me to learn different ways to be creative. Many times just seeing a new product will spur things for me. But other times I learn from others, and then put my own spin on things to make them work for my own purposes. I think it is important to continually take classes and seek out new information. No matter how accomplished an artist is, I think there is alw...
As we begin another week, there is something that I want to mention to you all. For the past couple of weeks, I have taken a day or two off from blogging on the weekend. This isn't because I have had nothing to do or wasn't busy, but rather because I have have been very productive – usually so much so that I have been using my morning time to get a head start on things. This isn't a bad thing. I rather think it is good. I have had several inquiries as to why I am not po...
I actually "behaved" yesterday and stayed focused on writing my pattern.I don't know why it is so difficult to write instructions sometimes. It isn't that I don't know what to say or remember what I did. It is more so that I get so PICKY with things and there are times when writing the instructions actually takes me longer than making the project itself. But in the end, I am very proud of the pattern packets that I produce. I think that even someone who is new to paintin...
Did you ever have those days when you set out to do a number of things, and when the day is finished you figure out that you accomplished a very small percentage of them, even though you were busy all day? That was the way I could best describe yesterday. I really don't quite understand what happened. I started out well. Got moving early, and somewhere along the way I just kind of got 'lost' with doing things other than I intended. Before I knew it – it was getting...
It’s mainly about my story in woodworking thus far, such as the cartoonish over sized hammers, and how I came to make the combs I sell now. Hope someone finds it entertaining. Thanks! http://www.handmademen.com/big-t-woodworks/
It felt really good to be back in the swing of things. Yesterday I was feeling much better about everything and I made wonderful progress on my next "Painting With Friends" pattern. In fact, I finished the painting part of the design completely.Many people ask me how the "Painting With Friends" program works. I thought that I would give a bit of an explanation again because of the many recent inquiries I have received.Painting With Friends is the name that a group of artis...
After an unprecedented three days off of blogging, I am back. I say "unprecedented" because in the four plus years since I began writing, I don't think that I ever skipped three days in a row while I was still home here and not on the road or away. Writing has become a morning ritual for me – as many of you know – and while it felt rather 'strange' not communicating with you all each morning, I believe it was a much needed break from my regular routine and so...
