lovely Saturday...

perhaps like this?
Black Friday is past and it is nice to see that the US appears  to be moving beyond economic recession. Before we get carried away with cheap stuff, it's Saturday, and the time of year many men (and women) turn toward time in their wood shops. If you have no inclinations at all in that direction, I'm sorry. You could have had such a great time.

Here in Eureka Springs today and tomorrow we have the Fall Art Show sponsored by the Eureka Springs School of the Arts. Many local artists are involved. It is a social event for many as well as a time to see and buy some beautiful work done by friends and neighbors.

The atmosphere is refreshing as the crowds are not as manic as what one would find at the shopping mall or big box store. No knives or guns will be required to force your way in line. If you have no inclination to make beautiful and useful things yourself, or if you want to support human creativity within our culture, stop at the Fall Art Fair and you will be pleased that you did.

I am taking a break from my own wood shop. I've been pushing too hard toward the goal of completing 500 boxes, and I'm ready for more creative work... perhaps a small collection of desk boxes with drawers.

Make, fix and create...
