So the new year brings with it my attempt at blogging. My daughter (computer literate) is teaching me (not computer literate) how to go about this. I know I'll be slow out the gate. So my idea with this blog is to have a showcase for whatever craft idea comes up. My latest creations are made from recycling wood from various sources. My first recycled project was the making of a character I named my "Garden People". The "About Me" section shows a picture of three girls I made for a Grandmother to give her grand-daughters. The word is she loves them. I have made several of these pieces now and I challenge myself to give each a recongnizable feature like style of hair and color to try and personalize it. The tools needed to create these are pretty simple. Great fun and I will continue with these as the faces make you smile. Ahhhhh...but now I have a scroll saw which provides greater detail so I've shifted to animals. Here are some examples. Sure is fun and I think they look good. Let me know if you agree (or not). All comments welcome. Thanks and try to stay dry!!!!!!!
