  • Arts n Crafts: What's with the Bear

    I’ve been trying to finish up some of my projects that are not so house related. I’ve been watching Rafael Robledo Jr and some others on YouTube modify collectible statues. It’s fun and inspiring to watch them cut and sculpt and paint these things up to make them fit their personal vision. I used to […]

  • Something from the Files

  • More Writing Goodness from KDL

    Good news email from the Kent District Library, they’re doing another writing conference in October. This time it’ll be focusing on the crafting aspects of the writing (as opposed to the publishing aspects of the last one). I’m already registered and looking forward to going. KDL Writers Conference: Crafting Edition Saturday, October 24, 9:30 AM […]

  • Superman Stands Tall

    Lady Ronn picked out a fantastic gift for me on my birthday this year, the Sideshow Collectibles life size Superman bust. It is awesome; fully 30-in tall. These pictures do not do it justice. But it’s also very big. Too big for my shelf or the corner of my desk. So I had to build […]

  • Arts n Crafts: Three Musketeers

    I’ve been trying to finish up some of my projects that are not so house related. If you remember last Christmas, these four guys showed up under my tree and ended up gracing my facebook page. The problem with them is that they aren’t particularly well balanced and have a tendency to fall over. Well, […]

  • Arts n Crafts: Faux Quill

    I’ve been working to finish up some of my projects that are not so house related. I tried something new, that I’ve been wanting to try for a while. I wanted to do something with a two part resin casting. You’ve seen all the writing inspired decoration in the office already, but I wanted to make […]

  • What Was I Thinking

    I picked up a couple of cabinets for the garage. They’re office cabinets, but they’re 72 x 36 x 18 inches and I thought they’d be great for garage storage. And for free, you can’t beat the price. But that lead to a garage reorganization project that started on Friday evening and is still ongoing. […]

  • 2nd Year, Better Than the 1st

    I’m back-filling this one, not because I forgot, but because I didn’t have time to put anything up on the actual date. I was busy spending time with the lady in question.   I didn’t think it could get any better, what with that first year of marriage being as good as it was, but […]

  • And We're Walking

  • Forty Seven

    Happy Birthday to me. Had the whole crew here tonight to celebrate my getting older and wiser. It was a ‘super’ birthday and Lady Ronn gave me something I’ve been wanting for a long while. Glade everyone was there. Sorry that work called and I had to rush off to fix a not-leak at the […]

  • Sunday Wrap-Up

    This morning, while drinking my coffee, I decided to take care of one of my very many craft projects. I hand drilled the feet of my musketeers with a 1/8-inch drill bit and installed a neodymium magnet in the foot of each. This will keep them from falling over on my shelf. Or it will […]
