A New Hobby

This year for Christmas I was fortunate enough to get a scroll saw. I have been admiring some scroll sawers (is that how you refer to people who use a scroll saw?) for awhile now on Youtube and Instagram and decided it was time for me to just try it already. These are a couple of my first projects. I am in love with this tool! There are so many possibilities. Also, it’s given me the confidence to pick up other tools that I was always so intimidated by before. I’ve even let my sons try it out a bit (with supervision, of course), and I think they really enjoyed it too. I can’t wait to see what the future brings to me and my shop with this amazing tool!

Cinco de Mayo!

It will be May soon, can you believe it!? This means Cinco de Mayo is on its way! This is just a great holiday for this time of year. All the bright colors are just perfect for Spring/Summer. Last year I only made one Cinco de Mayo gnome as a gift for my sister’s friend. I decided I need to make more this year. And just so he wouldn’t be lonely, I got him a cactus from the dollar tree. I decorated that with some leftover crepe paper in my stash (sometimes my craft hoard comes in handy…when I’m not tripping over it) and here’s the finished product!

This gnome, like all my others, can be found in my Etsy shop:
