Designing Gone Bad

Sometimes, when I hear a friend or a family member has a special occasion coming up, I get ideas on something to make for them.

Not every occasion, though, because a sign for every occasion, in one family, would get old fast.

I started playing around with filigrees and wingdings seeing if I could make something pretty.

But it ended up looking more like an octopus spider of sorts!

That just won't do.

Maybe I'll have better luck later.

Wood Grain Wednesday - Beautiful in our Differences

I often wonder what these trees go through....what is the story.

And, while I was sanding this one, I became so curious.

Just like humans, they are beautiful in their differences.

Product Shots - Photo Bomb

Owning your own business also means juggling tasks from time to time.  Like, trying to take some really quick product shots while also watching a toddler.

Playing with a dead bug.

Staring at the rain.

I don't really know, but the dog is fixing to run out of the house, too.

I told him he was stealing the show.  :)
He's a ham.  I sure do love him.

Even if he tries to get into all the product photos.

Wood Grain Wednesday - Eye of a Storm

With all the bad weather situations around these days, I couldn't help but see an eye of a storm in this one.

Wood Grain Wednesday: Ripple

This one I saw as I was about to cut the edges of the board to the right size.

As if a droplet of water fell, and created a ripple cascading outwards.
