Put a Chicken on it!

I skipped last Friday’s blog posting. Life has been pretty overwhelming and new items were not coming together. However, this week has been full of activity: Sunday set-up of the window at Footwise. Orders are almost here! More orders have been placed and (fingers crossed) will arrive before the event! Hurrah! A new drawing startedContinue reading “Put a Chicken on it!”

Slow drawing

Another week closer to the open studio tour and I’ve been working on drawings. I pulled out three incomplete images to finish. 1: black capped chickadee. 2: Ewe 183. 3: winter warbler. The Chickadee is similar to my first pyrography and colored pencils experiment. I think it will be lovely once completed. Ewe 183: IContinue reading “Slow drawing”

Uncle Harold’s 90th birthday was celebrated at the beginning of July. His sons and grandchildren, nieces and nephew gathered for a nice lunch in Eugene. It’s been about 8 years since we last visited. July is racing along and there are so many projects on the tables. House projects are getting thick and heavy. LumberContinue reading “July with Family and stuff”

Carving Wood, Felt Flowers and 13 Years

Let’s start with the 13th Anniversary of this Blog! Has it really been that long???? I’ve been so neglectful of keeping up with everything in life on any platform. Ok, I guess Instagram probably receives the most attention these days because it’s just easy to post a photo and add a few words. Sitting downContinue reading “Carving Wood, Felt Flowers and 13 Years”

New ideas popping up

Happy Lunar New Year! I’ve been working on numerous projects lately, mainly with wool, and slowly selling off the remaining chickadee cards from our holiday print run. Taxes are in the works because I’m awful about keeping track of expenses/time invested into projects. The Vintage Roost, a local seasonal venue, is currently hosting a fewContinue reading “New ideas popping up”

December? Already?

Oh my goodness! Where has all the time gone? Wait, I seem to remember lots of wool… stabbing with barbed needles and production. Yes, I’ve been working on product and things have been selling. Which means more production for restocking. Now the final weekend is almost here and I can shift to creating the holidayContinue reading “December? Already?”

Over the hurdle

Hello November with your blustery days. The atmospheric river of storms are dumping rain around the Pacific Northwest (aka “the Pineapple Express” due to the high temperatures). I went walking yesterday with my neighbor and we both had to pull off our coats. It was in the 60’s! The flood of rain is hitting fartherContinue reading “Over the hurdle”

Swamped with Home Improvements: September 6-12

After coming off the long Labor day weekend I kept working on the current house project of revamping the front door wall. Our weather is still good, but rain is actually looming later in the week. Below are a few images of the progress from start to end on the 12th. We still have theContinue reading “Swamped with Home Improvements: September 6-12”
