New address

I created a new email address to keep things simple (hopefully).  If you want to contact me about anything you can email me here:


*notice the ".ca" on the end.

I took a little break from blogging and doing pyrography last week.

This past weekend was a busy one.  We had a bunch of family over for Easter dinner and that meant a lot of preparation of food and tidying of the house.  Not much time left for anything else.  It was all worth it though!

On the weekend I received my first custom order!  It's a treasure box with the lady and roses image.  I worked on that yesterday and today and I am now in the finishing stages.  I think it has turned out really well.

I also worked a bit more on burning a tall ship on an oak plaque.  It has lots of detail and is going to take a few more hours to finish.  I like the look of black and white but I think the ship is going to need a little bit of colour.  It will help with some of the details I think.

I have a new item in the shop.  It's a wall hanging with the image of the Harvest man.  The image is from a stain glass pattern and I really like the colours and shapes that create the Harvest man's face.  My family and I are going to try to plant a vegetable garden in our yard this year so the Harvest man image is a personal one for me.  I really hope the Harvest man is good to us this year.

Treasure boxes

B's school is having a fundraiser in May and they wanted donations.  I immediately started brainstorming ideas for something I could create.  I found these cute, little boxes and started burning right away.  I think the image works really well.  I can't decide which one I like better, colour or no colour.

After I completed these boxes I decided to give the school a frame instead.  Now they're available for some other lucky person.

Celtic knots

I love celtic knotwork!  It amazes me how intricate and complex it can get.

When I saw the image of the two dragons on my Mom's pin I knew right away that it was going to be burnt into something.  This is one of my favourite pieces so far.  To check it out at my Etsy shop click here.

I think I can say I have officially launched now.  Phew, it took another couple of hours on the computer again today but I've learned so much and now feel ready to start posting items in my shop.  My shop.  It sounds so strange.  I'm sure it'll get more comfortable the more I do.

Today I added two more items to my shop:
dragonfly and fruit wall decor

"I love you" sign language frame

My first posting!

Well, it only took hours and hours and hours in front of the computer but I finally did it!

It really didn't have to take as long as it did to make this posting on Etsy.  I just found that there was so much information about starting a new shop that I thought I'd better read it and try to get myself up to speed and make sure I'm doing everything I'm supposed to be doing.

I have many more items to post on the shop but I thought I'd just get my toes wet with this one tonight.  I really like the way our hands can make a heart symbol and I think it will make a great frame for someone.  I've made two other ones in a rectangular shaped frame.  One was donated to my son's school for a fundraiser.  The other will be posted soon. 

After hours spent bent over the computer I need a break.  But I'm all smiles about this big first step.  I'm now out there in the big wild world!
