A Little Longer than Expected

Beach glass style kaleidoscope mosaic wind chime. Copper chimes with a beach stone clapper. Tung nut oiled red cedar. On sale now at my web site for 40% off the usual price.

The more I learn about making a web site, the less I seem to know. I've gotten to the point where I really, really wish I knew a lot, but understand that I know next to nothing. It's frustrating. Well, for now, I've done the best that I can. My head is about to explode, so I will give it all a break, take the pup for a long walk, and get back to making some neat things.

But I did manage to complete all the work on the sale section of the new web site~ although it took much longer than I had anticipated. These are all the things that came back from a local gallery that just closed. Rather than sell them as brand new (although they do look brand new!), I decided to sell them at 40% off. A good deal. Why not have a look?

Bad New ~ Good News

Cobalt blue beach glass-inspired copper art wind chiime. Was $227.50 ~ Now $142.50.
Many other items will be featured on my new 'sale' page of my web site in upcoming days. Just Click here to see them, and be sure to check back often, as I get the images up. Save 40%

The bad news is that a small local gallery where I had some of my work just closed. (I never did think it was such a good idea to open it up three flights of stairs!). That's too bad; I know the owners had high hopes for it. I believe they will be moving to a new location in the summer~ hope they choose more wisely!

The good news is that since everything I had in that shop was out of my home, I decided not to sell it as brand new. Everything is on sale at 40% off! Well, that's good news for shoppers... not great news for me!

I have four items set right now, and will be adding more as I get the images taken, and as time permits. So be sure to check back often. I hope to have several more added tomorrow, or on the weekend, depending on how the weather here holds out for pictures.

Click here to see some really amazing creations!

After working almost all of yesterday on my new website, I decided to take a very long hike today with my pup. It was great! We walked up the mountain, and before long we were into some nice snow. Not enough to make walking a struggle, but enough to make everything look beautiful. Wish I had taken the camera along. Then again, sometimes it's best just to enjoy.

Tomorrow, back to working on some new creations. It's so cold out, it will probably be painful out there, working with glass and copper. The copper is particularly hard to handle, as it always seems to be several degrees colder than the air. That's not possible. But it feels like it!

Making a Web Site is not so Easy!

My first creation of '07. I wanted to start the New Year by making something amazing~ so here it is! The wood base section especially pleases me. It is hewn from an old tough cedar stump, left over from logging. Usually, people just yank these up and burn them. Well, it turns out the wood is just beautiful! And being from the very bottom of the tree, harder than most cedar. For more information, or to purchase this very large double art wind chime, Click Here.

Well, when I first sat down with nearly zero in the way of skills to make my website, I thought it was going to be tough. Maybe beyond me. Then, after fooling around a little, I thought it was easy. Ha! Wrong. It turns out that this is one of those things where the more you learn, the more you understand you have to learn. Still~ I have learned a lot, and the site is starting to look okay. If you haven't dropped by, why not check out what a fellow with zero skills can accomplish? Click Here to see my site~ and any suggestions greatly appreciated!
