« Part 44: I Love Detailed Fretwork - BUT !! Part 45 of ScrollSaw Information and Resources series Part 46: Decision Going Forward »

I have written, several times, about what to do next with my scrollsaw work. I have considered lots of things, toys, 3-D objects, jewelry and others. Well, for the most part, I have made a decision.

The work I like best is detailed fretwork. The more detailed the better. So I have decided this will be the main focus of what I do. Why would one try yo do things that is just not part of what they wish to do. I have the choice. I am not really in this for money. Yes, if I make enough to buy some more scrollsaw baldes and a piece of wood, that will be fine, The real enjoyment I get is seeing the face of those who purchase, or recieve my work. I think that is the true test of a artist, if that is what I am.

I always say follow your heart not your head where hobbies are involved.

I think it is good to try different things and do what you like best, Jerrell. I always find that following my heart is the best way to go. That is part of why I like what I do so much. Keep having fun!
