« Part 1548: It's All in the Details Part 1549 of My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond series Part 1550: The Mustang Project - Phase 1 Complete »

Are you all tired of reading about this project yet?  I hope not. It is just been that it has really kind of consumed my life these past couple of weeks and because of that, I have had little else to write about. But I am getting to the end of my journey with this and soon will be moving on to other new things. I really appreciate all the nice comments and encouragement from everyone. When you work from home, outside feedback is really important – especially on the days when things don't go just right. Each and every comment has meant a lot to me. I hope you all know that. 

Keith was able to put the Pre Order Product for the Carousel All-Inclusive Kit on the site yesterday. You can see it here (SLDPS238 - Pre Order Carousel Kit) : 

It will be shipping within about two weeks. I am still awaiting some of the supplies I need to create the kits. But there are many being ordered so please don't wait if you are in a hurry. I may have to reorder more supplies soon. I tried really hard to find things that were available quickly for me. As you can imagine, the expense for the kits is a bit more than usual and I had no idea if I would sell 1 or 100. Those of you who have ordered from me know that I usually ship even my wood orders within a day or two at most, so it feels odd for me to have to wait for supplies. I ask that you all be a little patient with me while I am getting my bearings with this type of kit. I don't think you will be disappointed in it. The extra time and effort that I am putting into it will certainly be evident when you receive it and the pattern.

I am spending today writing and I will probably be doing so for the next few days. In between I need to go the hour drive to pick up my car, as I brought it yesterday to have the new top installed on it. Then tomorrow I will be off to Halifax again to drop it off for the rest of the work on it. Halifax is a three hour drive each way and you can imagine it eats up my time and days quickly (as well as Keith's). But it will be good to get this car stuff over with and then I will have the entire summer to enjoy it. 

Again, both Keith and I ask you to be patient with us these next few days. We know that everyone is used to us filling orders and answering questions immediately, but we will be gone a little more while we are doing this. We will however reply as soon as we come home. 

With that all said, I will keep this short today. Time to focus on the tasks at hand. :) 

I hope you all have a wonderful day today! It is sunny and warm and absolutely beautiful out today! It makes me think of the wonderful days we can look forward to ahead. 

Have a beautiful Thursday!

Glad to hear you are getting the weather to enjoy your car! It sure was a long winter for you all back there. Happy Spring!

Thanks, Anna! You too! I’ll post photos in a couple of weeks when it is done. It is beautiful today, too. Perhaps another trip to Halifax tomorrow to drop it off for the paint work. It will surely be a pleasure to drive. :)

Have a great day!
