The Use What You’ve Got scrap wood project has really got my mind exploding with ideas. I’m having a great time coming up with things but I’m having trouble getting to them because I have orders to fill. And it is kind of slowly dawning on me that “Oh! coasters and signs are my day job. I guess there is always going to be a day job.”
What is kind of awesome is that, for the first time in my life, I really enjoy my day job.
And what is making it even more enjoyable of late is a run of customers coming to me with ideas that make me think outside the David box.
And finally, Kevin got on a baseball kick after buying some Cardinals Coasters from me and, between us, we came up with these baseball themed coasters as gifts for his friends. We made a few using the classic subway graphics that I’m so fond of
And a few using vintage postcard graphics from classic ball fields.I do feel very, very lucky to have a business where, not only do I get to stretch my imagination on my own but the customers pitch in!
And now a little business to take care of before we part.
I’ve become aware that some of you may be reading this blog with the wrong intentions. Approaching it, perhaps, as others might view the Indy 500. Sure, you say you’re there for the fun of the race but really, in your heart, you’re hoping for a crash.
I became aware of this fact when my friend Nicki told me that she thought of me when she burned her hand on a glue gun and was reminded of my experience with the heat gun.
My friend Nicki then told me that around her house a bozo, injury causing move was referred to as “pulling a David.”
Well, we laughed and laughed and then I said to my former friend Nicki: “former friend Nicki I don’t think you are taking the correct message from this blog” and I asked her to please return her Cheltenham Road membership card and decoder ring.
Admittedly I was perhaps feeling a bit sensitive having just (I’m not kidding) smacked my head into the underside of the giant hinge that holds my garage door open.
No stitches. But hats will be a major player in my Spring wardrobe.
Anyway. I just wanted to bring to your attention that this blog is not intended to be the America’s Funniest Home Videos of the cyber world.
