Photos and Photos

I have been working hard on my photo selling page this past week. I have added a lot of new images, revamped the main page to be more user friendly, and added the option of 13 x 19 prints on most images.

I do all my own printing on my Canon Pro 10 professional printer, using an archival, high quality luster finish photo paper. This enable me to be in charge of the quality, and shipping of each piece.

This image I took of the Kofa mountain range was chosen for the Photo of the day, on Arizona Highways Magazine webpage. I thought that was pretty nice.

Artsy Fartsy Tuesday-Woodworking

Artsy Fartsy Tuesday-Woodworking

Al is doing a bit of an odd ball project right now. We met a woman about a year ago, that is a friend of a friend. She lives in Central, Utah and owns a fairly large cattle ranch. Central is about 20 miles north of St. George and is where our club mountain man rendezvous is held. Actually, she owns the land we have the rendezvous on, so it enables us to have a permanent site. More on that in the very near future.

She asked Al to carve 4 elephant legs for a huge table top she has. The slab of wood that is the table top weighs about 500 pounds. She has an “elephant room” and wanted a table with elephant legs to go in there. So, since we arrived in Utah county Al has been at his shop making 4 elephant legs.

This shows the process a little bit. He had to glue all the wood together to get something big enough. Then start carving them.

The cutest niece ever

The cutest niece ever

I went to visit my mom, sister, and niece the other day. It was the first chance I’ve had to get over there since we arrived in Utah. It’s always nice to see family, especially my niece. I only have 2 nieces, one here, and another in North Dakota. The niece in North Dakota is special and beautiful, and sadly I don’t get to see her much. Since I will probably never be a Grandma, they are about as close to that as I will ever get.

Look at this adorable girl.

The cutest niece ever  She is 5 now and in kindergarten. Blows me away how time flies.
