I was approached a couple of weeks ago to do another love spoon.

I am used to people just letting me do my thing and this spoon was no exception. The customer gave me the couple’s initials but made no other demands on the design. I’ve done a couple of “C and G” spoons before but this is the first for a couple where the Lady’s initial is a “C”.

My rules:

1) Lady’s initial on top, Gentleman’s on the bottom.

2) the Initials are always linked together somehow.

I tried to pin down a “due” date but was told that the couple married late in life and celebrate their “anniversary” every month. That’s kind of a nice thought, don’t you think?

Check out my blog for more details.

Keep makin’ Chips!

Nice job. I’ve done my share of spoons and know how muck work goes into these.
