Happy New Year Everyone!! Hopefully 2013 will be a wonderful year for everybody!!
I have to admit, 2012 wasn’t an entirely bad year but I’m not shedding any tears for it’s passing. I have always felt refreshed by the concept of a new year coming along and always resolve to change something about the way I live my life in subtle ways; some last and some don’t. As in previous years, I’ve made some resolutions for this years also. Nothing particularly difficult but will take a bit of commitment all the same. My primary resolution, for the interest of the blog, is to take my “crafting” to a new level. Hopefully, I may even achieve the level of “art”…but that is yet to be seen. More detail to follow…
Anyway, on my last post, I had discussed my intention for integrating wood and resin. In all honesty, the dog paw in the small, wooden box was exhausting to pull off. The hand carving of the paw about broke my hand as I did it with a Dremel freehand…big mistake. However, the possibilities of what I can do with the integration of wood and resin has been brewing and building in my mind ever since.
Thanks to a very generous Santa Clause this year (my dear hubby), I now have a brand new Ryobi Scroll Saw and a brand new NICE camera to use to document my progress. For those of you that don’t know what the capabilities of a scroll saw are…stay tuned; it’s difficult to explain but can easily be shown in pictures and videos. Both of which I fully intend to have in my blog entries this year.
Just as before, I am a working woman and time to dedicate to my craft is brief so blog posts aren’t going to be very frequent for the foreseeable future; but I’ll do my best. I’ve very excited about the new direction I’m about to embark on and the cool little workshop I now have in the basement!!!
Thanks for the support through this and hopefully we can have another inspiring year!!
