I enjoy making things I’m asked for as long as the request isn’t overly specific. I really like making something that makes something else easier, better, or saves time. It might take two days to make, but it will save five minutes each time it’s used again, and again, and again. It’s appreciated each and every time it’s used.

I’ve seen some unusual pieces that made me think “I’d like to try making one of those, but what would I do with it.” I haven’t done it yet, but I think charity auctions is the answer. Make it to see if I can and, if it turns out nice, donate it to charity.
