YOU CAN GENERALLY FIND ME AND THE DOGS OUT IN THE SHED, MUSIC UP LOUD, FLIP FLOPS ON (YES, I WELD IN FLIP FLOPS, A BAD IDEA I KNOW), EITHER SWEATIN’ OR FREEZIN’ MY WAY TO CREATIVITY.
AFTER SOME MUCH NEEDED TIME OFF, I AM SLOWLY MAKING MY WAY BACK INTO THE BARBED WIRE WORLD. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! FROM THE DEPTHS OF MY HEART FOR ALL YOUR LOVE, SUPPORT AND UNDERSTANDING ON THIS JOURNEY. SINCE I’M NOW WORKING AT ANOTHER JOB IN TOWN, I WILL NOT HAVE AS MUCH TIME TO MAKE CUSTOM PIECES, THEREFORE I WILL NOT BE TAKING ANY ORDERS AT THIS TIME. WHEN TIME AND INVENTORY ALLOWS IT, I WILL BE HOSTING “FACEBOOK LIVE SALES” TO SELL MY ARTWORK. I WILL POST, WELL IN ADVANCE, SO YOU CAN “SAVE THE DATE” AND BE IN ATTENDANCE. SINCE THIS IS SUCH A UNIQUE CRAFT AND IT WILL BE IN SUCH LIMITED SUPPLY, YOU MIGHT WANT TO “FOLLOW” THIS PAGE, SO YOU’RE SURE TO RECEIVE NOTIFICATION OF MY UPCOMING LIVE SALES. MY POSTS ARE GENERALLY FAR AND FEW BETWEEN, SO DON’T WORRY ABOUT GETTING BOMBARDED WITH NOTIFICATIONS.
