“I will blog tomorrow.”
That’s what I kept telling myself each day. Each day as I got up and got rolling on finishing coasters, making subway signs, cutting letters, sending out Etsy orders I would say to myself, “as soon as I’m done with this I will write a blog post.”
The problem is – I never seem to be done with “this” whatever “this” may be.
And when I am done with “this” I tend to eat ice cream rather than blog (Trader Joe’s Mint Chip. I’ve been living on that and coffee for about a week. You know, cause I’m all about healthy).
So clearly, I need to become a “right when I get up” blogger. This will, of course lead to numerous spelling mistakes and poor grammar but I’m afraid that’s just the way it has to be.
Good Morning! It’s 6:01AM!!!!!
I have spent my week not blogging and prepping for the Renegade Craft Fair which is this weekend!
My prepping was a bit hindered when I discovered that my scroll saw was busted. A quick call to the folks at Porter Cable resulted in this easy fix.
I could either mail it to the factory (no problem – it only huge, awkwardly sized and weighs 50 pounds or so) or drive it 60 miles to a factory! After that it would just take them three short months to get the tiny little part that’s broken installed because it’s back ordered!
How totally awesome!
Amazon came to my rescue and I now have a brand new scroll saw…..and an old scroll saw……..anybody want a used, broken scroll saw? No? Weird.
Happily before my scroll saw trauma I had completed two custom orders. And it really is true – your customers come up with the best ideas.
Recently, two separate customers asked me if I’d consider making one large letter for them rather than my regular HOME sign. I’m always up for something new so we collaborated and emails flew back and forth and decisions were made and sawing was done and we emerged at the other end with these.
I hope he likes it!
It’s 20” high by 13.5” wide which – fun fact – is exactly ½” larger than the largest box my local box supplier makes! I turns out my artistry is not constrained by my imagination, finances or skill but by conveniently available box sizes!
OK. It’s now 6:45AM and as soon as I’m done with this blog post I’m gonna eat ice cream get to work!
