Yesterday, I sent part of the day in playing in the “shop”. It all started out by joining a one on one ornament swap. So, I was search the net for ornament ideas. Well, I came across the cutest snowman. It was made out of wood. Looking at the list of supplies- she used a jig saw to cut out her snowman. At this point- I started writing letters to Mr. Ink to be delivered by the youngest ink spot. My heart sank when the note came back NO JIG SAW. So, I put my idea on the back burned for a while and of course I got sick. While I was laying around I started to do sketches for ornaments I wanted to make. Talked to Mr. Ink about how I could cut out my shapes with out a jig saw. Yesterday was the day I got new blades for the band saw- that made it work like a jig saw (ok it can’t make super tight curves). Mr. Ink put the new blade in for me. Showed me how to use it and off I went. I have to say in the back of my mind I keep thinking of Mr. Prom my wood shop teacher from middle school and how I cheated on my wood shop project. Gosh, I was silly- the band saw was a ton of fun!
Here is what I came up with. They are not finished…. I think they need some wax yet. I have some on order!
Thanks for stopping in! I enjoy your visits!
