I had thought that I would be able to take a day off today and do some things that aren’t work-related, but after an email from my editor at Creative Woodworks and Crafts, I realized that it wasn’t going to happen. I had mixed up my schedule for what is going to be published, and I need to have my next project in the mail by Monday so it can make it to the magazine offices on time. Why did I think that I would have another week?

I don’t mind though, because fortunately I have about 95% of the projects drawn and I am nearly ready to cut it out. In between doing all the other things that I have been doing lately, I did get the majority of it drawn up. I am really grateful for that. In theory, I could actually even finish cutting it out today and then I will have TOMORROW for doing my own personal things. It is a great goal to work for and will motivate me to have a good and productive day today.

So once again, I need to make this post short and get moving on the working front. In the meantime, I will show you a little preview of what I am working on:

This is going to be for the JUNE issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts. I can’t wait to see how it comes out.

I promise to show you a bit more on it the next time. I think it is going to be a fun project.

As we march through March, I can’t believe that it is half over already. In two weeks we will be in New York at the Northeastern Woodworkers Showcase teaching. I can’t wait to see old friends and meet new people. Both Keith and I are looking forward to it very much.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend and a very productive and creative Saturday.
