« Part 1042: More New Designs Added on the Website Part 1043 of My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond series Part 1044: The Christmas Box »

What a fun and busy day we had yesterday! I sent out a quick newsletter to those who are on our Mailing List announcing the updates we made to the site and spent the rest of the day cutting out my Christmas box, filling orders and corresponding with customers. I must say that is was one of the busiest days we have had on our site, as everyone really loved Keith’s new plaques that I featured here yesterday.

It feels really great to have some of our new stuff received so well. I know it was a big boost to Keith because so many people jumped on getting these new patterns. It is nice to take the time to do something like that and have people appreciate it so much. Both of us are really grateful!

I am almost finished cutting the Christmas box, and I should be done today. I hope to have some finished pictures of the nativity keys too in the next day or so, and the finished box. Once I am done with these two projects, I can move on to some more things for the site, as most of the deadlines will be met.

I am going to keep today’s post short, as there is lots to do and I want to get started. But I also wanted to wish everyone a happy Memorial Day weekend. I hope you have fun and stay safe and take a bit of time to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Have a great weekend!

Hi Sheila,
My Saturday was a tedious one too. Cutting by hand some veneers for my restoration work of my late father’s violin. Others are melodica and bandoria … like a mandolin. My stepmom passed away two weeks ago and those wooden musical instrument are here with me for restoration. The violin is really a high quality of wood but the glue are not so lasting. I just post later on blog. This has given another test for my skill.

About the eagle and the leaf… maroon or red background signifies the bloody fight of heroes. Nice choice of color. I can see the pine tree that creates the close up effect of the eagle.

Have a niceweekend.

-- Bert

Nice designs Sheila. It’s just the outcome of all your hard work. Making such designs is not an easy task. It’s difficult too for some experience designers to make. You did quite a beautiful job.

Thank you all. Bert, I would love to see the violin blogged. I am sure it will be really beautiful and a wonderful keepsake to pass down to your own children. :)
