  • Brother home, back from Texas and didn't get in show

    PHEW!!! Another crazy week. My brother came home last Wednesday. He's much better. Fluid is mostly gone from around his heart,he had 2 stints put in and still has some blockage. He can go to work when he can walk the 3 1/2 blocks from the parking lot to his office without getting winded. He told me last night this is harder than he imagined it would. Open heart surgery on hold right now depending on future tests in 6 weeks.

    We got back from Texas Tues night visiting the grandkids. They are getting so big I can't believe it. The picture shows Chris the youngest, Samantha and Ben, the oldest. That's me and hubby with them somewhere in the Alamo.

    Got a letter today saying they loved my work but had 4 woodworkers and didn't want to add another but would contact me if one backed out. Oh well, Leaves that date open for another show!!

    Happy to hear about the heart condition being on the mend sad to hear you were not accepted to their show. Consider it their loss.

      Betty, the picture with your precious grandkids speaks to what's really important.

      It's their loss not to have your lovely work in this year's show!

        Betty -- Your brother's improvement and spending time with the grandkids are the important things in life. And If I were king of the craft show, you'd be there, even if I had to kick another woodworker out..

            So glad your bro is doing better. Bummer about the show, but you will be on the list next year, I'll bet.

            Love the pic of you, hubby and the gkids.

              Glad to hear that your brother is on the mend and that you get time to spend with family. Shows come and go but Family is much more important. They will miss your work I am sure, their loss.

                Hi Betty - so glad to hear that your brother is on the mend. Regarding the show, I guess it's a disappointment for you but take the news with a pinch of salt. Jury decisions are always subjective and its best to take them or leave them. We and you know your work is good and there are always other opportunities.

                Great photo of the grandparents and kids. Looks like you make a fun bunch when out together.

                      No, Rolf, that's not my house. It's somewhere in the grounds of the Alamo, in front of the Library, I think. There is another 3 day show in Oct I am applying for so I'm not too concerned about not getting in that one. It was close, we could stay home so no hotel fees. But like everyone says, their loss not mine!!!

                          Betty I see the prayers for your brother were heard....glad he is back home.

                          I remember one show years ago we juried for and got into...they came around the first day and said we had way to much stock displayed for the show. They gave us a 5'X20' booth and we put up a wall display and filled it....they wanted us to remove most of it...said it would not be fair to others that did not bring as much. Sold the hell out of our items and did not try to go back the next year...even when the invited us!!

                              None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                              What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                              The bags seem easier on the surface.
                              But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                              Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                              As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                              I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
