I am a retired teacher, and now just recently retired from working in the jewellery business. For the past 35 plus years I have lived in Rockwood, ON and enjoyed working in my garden and "playing" in my workshop.
Several years ago, we moved to a new freehold luxury townhome situated above the river. We love it here, with a protected mixed wood stand between us and the river, although I can usually see the river between the trees. My workshop is small and limited to only part of the basement. Here I can "play" while creating decorative items for outdoors, or refinishing some antique piece that I have collected over the years. I used to have a stained glass small business, and am thinking of ways of incorporating stained glass and wood into some artistic expressions, perhaps adding photography into the mix as well.
In the past, while teaching and also serving in municipal politics for 20 year, I usually had a small busines going also. Thoses included a photography company, a couple of antique companies, an artistic aquisition company, a stained glass company, as well as a canes and spindle company. Just some things to keep my creative mind going.
I really have to get something going again, having been retired ( for the second time) since January. One can only travel so much especially these days. I find being at home is less stressful than travelling, although travelling does have its benefits as well. One certainly can get a lot of ideas flowing when seeing other people's work.
That is what I hope happens here.
