I am really running late this morning because my internet was down until just now. I didn't think that I would be able to write a blog at all. But obviously, it is back up (at least for now!) so I will try to do a quick blog to let you all know about the updates on the site. In addition to the new "Life is Better at the Beach" and "Life is Better at the Lake" plaques that I mentioned in yesterday's post, we have some other new things for you all to enjoy. &nbs...
Lately it seems like we are updating things quite a bit. In reality, we are still keeping to our "about twice a month" schedule of sending out our newsletter and updating the website. In between we must be working more than we realize. Not only are we updating the website today, but Keith is also working on adding all of our new products to our catalog. The last time we updated that was in autumn, and we like to do that at least twice a year. While neither Keith nor myself thou...
I am getting back to normal, whatever that is. The last couple of days were really kind of a pain. (literally!) However, I can't really complain because with the muscle relaxer pills I was taking, it was all manageable. I only need to be careful. I was going to try to not take them today, but this morning just sitting was bothering me quite a bit. So on to Plan B it is and I will try to take them as far apart as possible. The important thing is that I do feel better and I am on the m...
IMPORTANT NEWS: Holsworth Woodworks is currently in the process of building our warehouse for our massive amount of stock at our NEW location in Sparks, Nevada. We anticipate this to be complete in 3 months and we will take a full photo inventory to post on our website and reopen with a few new services and products. 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...
