    Things that take your breath away.

    I think I've posted a few bits about helping my mother redecorate her home since dad passed away. And I believe that when you do a room, it should be totally yours. That it should be pleasing to you. So I've tried to put something in her every room that simply takes her breath away. Nothing...

    Tired, going to call it an early night

    Shovled six ton of stone today, and I'm worn out. Well...I didn't actually shovel the stone myself. I watched my brother do it. I WOULD of had to help, but I'm way ahead of him. I hid all the other shovels. Good thing too, because it took him all day. The mere thought of me having to...

    Gargoyle, How does one "carve" a stone?

    You gotta have one sharp knife. (unlike me and Em, who are not the sharpest tools in the box) But....you made the cool gargoyle in you picture? Awesome job. I've been looking for some good size fellers made in stroyfoam. Or at least lightweight. How many hours do you have in him? At any...
