Halloween – The month of Horror – Part One

Halloween – The month of Horror – Part One

It all started with creating a wood-burning piece for Scoops and Mischief Annual Scares that Care Charity Event. And of course, Halloween – the month of horror is here. Last year Scoops and Mischief donated $2,700 and they increased their goal to $5000. There...

#the100dayproject

I’ve made a last minute decision to join the #the100dayproject this year. My challenge was what project I would be focusing on and as I was mulling it over, because I wanted something that was relatively small and wouldn’t take a tremendous amount of time,...
Personalized Gift Idea

Personalized Gift Idea

Do you have someone in your life that likes dragons? Dragon’s have always fascinated me in some way and a lot of my recent work has featured dragons mostly in paintings. But I always found that personalized gifts are a neat way of saying “Hey, I really...

It can at times be challenging to choose your favorite piece of creation but I must admit that the covered bridge wood-burning is definitely my favorite. But it’s also the biggest piece I have done so far. It’s currently at the Gallery 527 in Scottsville...
Make your own Wood Ornaments this Season

Make your own Wood Ornaments this Season

Creating art on wood comes pretty natural to me and I always have some extra pieces around. It helps that I also live in about 2 acres of land with lots of trees. Of course, if you don’t have the acreage of trees, then your closest craft store should have tree...

National Coffee Day is September 29th, it’s also my birthday, which is quite hilarious because I am a coffee fanatic and can’t live without that delicious nectar of the gods! I’ve been drinking coffee since I was 13 and even though I have tried to...
