Feburary Already?

   Posted by: admin    in Figural Nutcracker, Valentine's Day

It’s been a long time since our last post.    January was a long, unbelievably cold, extremely snowy month.  It was so cold that Brandon was unable to work out in the workshop very often.  Once it’s below 20 degrees it gets almost impossible to heat his workshop and you can’t carve with numb fingers.    Now that the weather is much warmer he’ll be in his workshop much more.

I spent the month of January trying to get our house in some sort of order after the holidays.  I then decided the wallpaper in the kitchen had been there long enough.  We moved into this house 8 years ago and every room had  wallpaper of some sort.  The kitchen was the last room to have wallpaper.  It wasn’t awful, but I just wanted it gone.  So it was on to the wonderful job of removing wallpaper, fixing walls, painting, and installing new lighting.  It’s all done and I believe it’s a great improvement!

Since that’s done, it’s back to more artful projects.  I have painted a few Valentine’s Day items:

Next on my agenda is painting a few clocks that have been patiently waiting to be painted.  Also, this next month is a busy month with family birthdays (5 birthdays in 2 weeks including our son’s).  I will be busy getting a party planned.

Brandon is currently working on a commission nutcracker.  It is a very beautiful, impressive piece and we will post pictures of it when it is completed.  Then he’s on to his next project, a nautical sign for a home.

Until next time,

Melissa
