What I did on my Fall Vacation…

Lots to catch up on!  First, there was the big 3-day Craft Show in Ozark, MO.  This is our second year doing it, and again my Mom joined us with some art prints and handmade beaded jewelry.  We had a great time!

Then it was a week off of my day job to try and get some relaxation.  Did a lot of projects around the house.  Put up our old wooden frame market stall from the first craft show we did in my corner of the back yard.  Once it has a roof on, I plan to use it for my green woodworking projects.  Also got a load of firewood in.


Then it was off for two days camping.  We rented a lake hut at Twin Bridges State Park in Oklahoma.  It was great!  Since it was the middle of the week in the off season, we had the place to ourselves.  Spent a day in Grove, OK hitting some antique shops and had lunch at a great place called Chickenella’s.  Found some tools for the shop and my Living History woodworking project.

Then it was back home to catch up some more chores and finish off some honey-do’s, one of which has been on my list for a year and a half!  For our wedding anniversary 2013 we made a collage together on a large piece of plywood.  It needed a frame so it could be hung up.  Well, it’s finally done and I have to say I wish I’d done it much sooner.  Also made a plant shelf for the plants that have been acquired over the summer and now need an indoor spot for the winter.

Oh, and a new sign for the shop.  This is really more for me than anyone else, a little reminder to myself that I’m working towards something.


Taking on some new things over the Fall and Winter to get ready for the Ren Faire next Spring.  Lots of woodworking to be done!
