In between trying to catch happy moments and trying to make some money, we've been working on painting and sculpting little miniatures. (It doesn't take up much space)
When John isn't busily creating things from 'greenstuff', he's been able to get the lathe up and running and he's been out in his "lanai shop" turning up some new Nostepinnes and Darning Eggs/Aids. So many people have written to us since we dropped out of sight to move in October, so we thought we better get back up and running and make space for our wood items. We did find a great source here in Hawaii for beautiful Exotic Hawaiian woods, koa, mango, kiawe, ohia... John turned several Nostie from some of that wood. We posted an ad for the new items last Wednesday and were sold out within 48 hours. We managed to get the movers to crate and move all our Hurricane Katrina salvaged turning blocks, so we still have a stash of salvaged wood to work with. Here are some of the newest ones being posted to ads today.
We are finally home in Hawaii after all the mess of the previous year or two with Hurricane Katrina, the Coast Guard and all that MOVING! We are back here with family, battling OUTRAGEOUS housing prices and testing out our own "Handyman Service" business. Hopefully, we can make enough money doing house repair, remodel, small fix-its, electrical, etc. so that it will keep us from having to work 2 or 3 jobs each, sun up to sunset. We are having to double up and live with family though, as rent is simply way to high and spaces are simply not available. However, we are able to get into the water almost daily if we can sneak some time for it. We thought you might like a peek at us being silly for a change!
