Busy with Custom Orders!

I have been sparse lately, partially for reasons that I can't explain, and mostly because we are busy with several custom orders, and I am very busy with roller derby. I am skating 4+ days a week again, which is fun, but I also spend a lot of time planning the 2 practices that I run, researching teams and drills and doing other things behind the scenes. We have also started climbing every Friday again.

Here are a few pictures from our trip to Michigan:

A nice picture of the two of us

Autumn looking gleefully into the donation box as though at 14 months she already knows the power and importance of money in this world.

Also, last Saturday I died my hair black. I like it.

So, these are our custom orders:

Yesterday I finished these adorable Martial Arts Kiddos. There are 12 of them, 6 boys and 6 girls. I tried to make a good multicultural mix. I think they are cute but am a little worried that they are fragile.

Adam also recently finished this awesome kitchen chopper. I really love it and am encouraging him to make more. He does have a few kitchen knives on the bench though, including a stainless steel one. I cant wait to see how they turn out. I will be shipping this one very soon.

Then there is the wedding dress I am working on. All I have left to do is cut the stray strings, and make the veil. I also decided today when I put this dress on the form to take pictures that I wanted to add some strings to tie up the skirt from the inside to make the raised skirt a little easier to accomplish and also create a more even billowy drape. I will take some nicer pictures when the dress is done.

I also am feeling a little sick. Bleh. It's a tired achy flue-ish cold.

Also, I have had several people ask me for cards that they can hand out.... so I guess I need to design some new cards, eh?

Take care for now, folks.

  1. You can get to buy Knife Set online as well. So, in this case you need not have to worry about going out in the scorching heat of the sun to get one for you.

  2. Wonderful pictures. Autumn gets her looks honestly!

    The custom order kiddos are cute and the dress is pretty.

    Hope you feel better soon!
