Since I have been made an honorary member of the pony cousins out there on the west coast, I feel I too must have a new "cousin" name. I have chosen this one, "she who writes with fire". I will explain.....
My newest craze and hopefully money making venture is pyrography, or for us simple minded folk...wood burning. I am making signs and plagues and boxes and picture frames and whatever else I can come up with and personalizing them and drawing with "fire" on them. I am having a blast!
It all began with the death of a barn.... I know weird . I have several barns on my ancient property here and one poor building just caved in and surrendered after 100 years or so. Being the recycling mama that I am I kept trying to come up with a use for all that barn wood. The barn was 30 feet across and 80 feet long. I even contacted some folks about taking the old wood or beams but got no takers. I think I have a picture of the barn when it was still standing I will try and dig it up for a later post. Anyway I decided to try my hand at sign making and wood burning and such.
I will be setting up a website and will be doing custom orders for stall plaques and signs real soon. Here are a few of the things I have done so far.
The picture frame below is not from the barn just one I purchased and then decorated by burning on it, I think it came out cute. I will include the cheesy photo that I cut out of a magazine!
Anyway that's what I have been up to and will share more with you on this project later. I think I feel well enough to climb up on Harley today so wish me luck!
