    Good to know that he arrived safely! Have a nice time, and I'm sure the whole "family" look forward to both pictures and worded information on the visit. Cheers!

      Hehehe - terrible photo Frieke, but you beat me to it because my head was hazy this morning from the beer last night - got home around 1:30am absolutely beat after a very long day.

      I have to say here first off that walking into Fiieke and Erics house yesterday had me drooling. So much talent on display that her posted images certainly don't do any justice to her work.... more on this to come

      Program for today:

      Priority #1 Recover from yesterday with a very strong coffee!

      Shop day most of the morning and early afternoon to work on our joint collaboration piece.

      Evening, girls arrive full of giggles and a little English to join in my 'English guy teaching Flemish kids how to make Italian pizzas' party - flour dust and chaos in the kitchen with lots of laughter and probably flying salami frizzbies.

      Not sure what is programmed for later. Frieke has everything planned out and I'm simply tethered to her with a piece of string so that I can keep up with the movements and not get lost.

      Frieke and Eric are such nice folk and are going to make this weekend truly memorable for me. Stay tuned!!!


      Here are a couple more mug shots. Frieke and Eric and then 'er and me in front of the old dockyard port control castle in Antwerp by the side of the river Schelde.

              Jim you sure get around. LOL

              Try to keep him out of trouble Frieke, I know it is not an easy task.

              Can't wait to see what the 2 of you come up with this weekend.

                                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....
