It’s not often that I will go to the effort of drafting one of my posts, especially when my writing is something that flows so naturally (and yes, I am aware that I occasionally use the incorrect word, even when it’s spelled correctly). In this instance, I began writing this over a week ago and here I am now, replacing the entire content of text with a fresh script. My thinking now is that the one post I started writing may now be better served in several shorter supplements.
This is going to develop in to a ‘series’ of posts based on an area of my life that I am not and have never been satisfied with: what I do to pay the bills on a day-to-day basis.
Fear not, I’m still alive and I do still have intentions of getting back in the workshop before Christmas! Other things have been taking over lately and, as I did state recently, I’m enjoying a bit of a break from my seven-year-long ‘obsession‘ with this craft.
As I mentioned on my Facebook page recently, I’m planning to make and complete a couple of boxes in time for Christmas. If I can, I’ll document them, write about them (not just here) and offer them for publication in a UK magazine. If I don’t keep them both then, I already have a recipient in mind for one and I may try to offer the other as well.
Right now, I’m just looking forward to completing a small but enjoyable project like this. It’s been about five-years since I last made a box like this!
