  • This and That

    I thought I would have more time to get in here when I lost my job. Boy, was I wrong!! I have been so busy working for myself I wonder how I got everything done when I worked!! In addition to scrolling, I am selling Avon and doing quite well. I even manage to combine the two! When someone buys some Avon products, I suggest one of my baskets to put the items in for a lovely gift!! IT WORKS!!! I have gotten into 5 more shows, one of them a big 2 day Thanksgiving show. Hubby is quite happy now that we aren't eating dinner at 8:00 at night. Life is just so much more relaxed and happier. And yes, I am STILL smiling about being fired!! I may even send the jerk a thank you card!!! I read a sign this past year and it said "If opportunity isn't knocking, build a bigger door." Well, the jerk that fired me gave me a bigger door and I kicked it open with both feet!!! Now, if I could just figure out how to get my pictures posted in here!!

    Will, good for you. I have always said, opportunity is always just around the corner. We just have to look for it and then recognize it when we see it. Sounds like you have a pretty good head on your shoulders. You will do fine.

      Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

      Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

      Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

      My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
      I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
      Was it a good idea.....?...

      Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

      The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
