New item!

We are having another great weekend!  The weather has been nice and we've mostly been focussing on celebrating birthdays and Mother's day with family.  How can you beat that?

We took a trip to see my parents and brother's family on Friday.  While we were there I received a couple more custom orders!  I'm very excited about these ones.  I get to work with the wood a little more, rather than just burning and colouring.  The orders are gifts so I don't want to say to much more just yet.

I also had a couple of brainstorming ideas on our drive.  I think I've missed the window this year but I was thinking I could make a bunch of pieces for teacher gifts next year!  And while we were visiting, my Mom showed me a wooden wine box.  I have so many ideas for the box that I'm thinking the hardest part is going to be deciding just what to burn onto it.  My biggest problem is having/finding the time to work on these ideas!  I could be really productive if I didn't have to be a parent some days.  ; )

I've posted another item for purchase on my Etsy site.  Yay!  It's the image of a dragon and pheonix burned onto an oak plaque.  I am so happy with how it turned out!  For more details click here.

Six years ago I did the same image for a good friend of mine who was getting married.  I burnt the image onto a wooden album for her wedding pictures.  It was the first time I'd done something so big and detailed and when it was finished I was very proud to give her and her husband the album.
Please remember I had a horrible camera 6 years ago so the quality of the picture really isn't that good  ; )
Now I've had a chance to do the image again and I'm just as pleased with the result as I was six years ago.  Please take a look at my new item and my other pieces at my Etsy shop, you just might see something you like.


  1. I still love that album, 6 years later and it still looks brand new. Thanks Maya :)

  2. Absolutely my pleasure, Janine! It was so much fun to make and I'm glad to hear that it's doing so well 6 years later!
