I’m posting this here as a blog because I wanted to talk a little about it, but also I didn’t feel the need to cluster the projects page with all these. To start off I wanted to say that these projects are important to me not only because of what they are for but because of who made them. She is an amazing woman, and I’m glad to have her in my life. These ornaments and decorations were cut out by me, or bought as kits. Most of this blog isn’t about the woodwork itself but the artistry in paint. So I apologize for putting them on a woodworking site, just know they are wood. I just wanted to “flaunt” my ladies creations. It is a privilege to work with her, and watch her work. Enjoy.

This bear is the first project she made everything on, from cutting the parts to painting.

These are all very good with a lot of work involved, I know someone that paints these items such as these and it is no small feat. They are all adorable. She does great work. Does she sell them?

To me the best part of woodworking is making something beautiful out of wood. WOW she sure did her part very well. Merry Christmas and LOL next year.
