17 New Boards   Leave a comment

Mr-Ms-Logo---LargeIt has been a glorious vacation. 75 days without sales events has been a wonderful thing.

We’ve created a monster, you see. I make “Cutting Boards, Wooden Serving Pieces & More” … according to my sign. Mrs M makes her “Handmade Soaps & Lotions” … according to her sign. And we’ve found enough success actually selling those products that we’re now constantly chasing our tails trying to keep up.

It’s exhausting.

And, it’s a good thing. No complaints! But it is a job to keep track of what inventory is needed, and then actually following that siren song of creativity to produce what we must. That’s how creativity works: you must create to scratch that itch. You must.

Luckily, this week I’ve had the recently retired Dr H in the shop, and he’s helped me through the many steps of making those several different products, including a rather large one that he’s taking home. He also helped me think through the, ummm, shall we say unusual production of a new product, but that’s a story for another day.

Getting covered with sawdust relaxes him, he says. Everyone has their own wacky ways of having fun, it seems.

Here’s the latest to make it out of the shop:
