February Snow Storm: View From the Back Door

How do you fancy opening your back door to this one morning? We did it several mornings. And Joni went over the top first! At least our door opens inward or we might have had problems getting out as many people did.

Surely there should be a #snowsunday  or something of that nature? Instead of #depthoffieldSunday  why not a #depthofsnowSunday ?

Try selling it to drought stricken Californians. One person from Boston is selling bottle of snow at  $19.99 (and people are buying it!!) :-)

Joni's First Experience of Sheep Herding

She took to it like a ... border collie to sheep herding! Covered in mud at the end of the afternoon, she slept in the car on the way home and was tired for almost 2 days afterwards. Tired, but so happy.

A friend of her breeder's helped us to get her into it and supplied the expertise and the sheep. She said that Joni has a great natural ability.

Video Produced by Canadian Woodworking Magazine

In the current issue of Canadian Woodworking Magazine +Canadian Woodworking there is an article "Canadian Quotes" about me and my work, here,
You should be able to read that article as a sample if you want.
They built the attached slideshow using my and Ellie's photographs and my thoughts from the article. I think they did a great job of it.
As well there is an article I wrote for them entitled "Turn a Simple Box". If you pick up a copy of the magazine or buy a digital copy you can see all the articles, but some are available to read as samples.

I Want to be a Husky When I Grow Up

In a previous posting, where we talked about a very cold and snowy walk with Joni, our friend Ursula asked to see a photograph of how she looked at the end of her walk. We were out for 2 hours and the wind was blowing the snow swirling around the fields. Joni never seemed to mind as long as we kept throwing her toy.

So here she is, +Ursula Klepper waiting for you to throw her a blue ball! You can bring  Mira along with you, though she might find it a bit cold!

Great Short Profile of this Craftsman

I just had the great experience of spending 3 days with the director /producer Ben Proudfoot from Breakwater Studios, LA along with his cinematographer David Bolen who produced this short video below. They are making a profile of me and my work and that video (about 9 minutes long) will be out in a few weeks. They are a really talented team as you can see by this short. I'm looking forward to seeing the production. It was 3 intense days and a great learning experience to see the process of making a movie.
"The Ox"
Others are here: (Vimeo Staff Pic) "Ink and Paper", and a preview of Ben's film "Dinner with Fred"

Eyeing up the Local Talent in Quebec City

We had a great (if cold) day in Quebec city in November and this pair was too preoccupied to pay any attention to me (or to the cold). They were on the ramparts looking down over the old city.

Ellie, Exhausted After Circumnavigating the Earth

Ellie, standing on top of the world.

Carrying her chuck-it launcher and ball and accompanied by our border collie puppy, Joni (who is out of the frame, fetching the ball), she has returned from her journey to the top of the world. Joni needed a complete round trip to begin to be a bit tired. Ellie got there first (to the exhausted part).

+Billy Horne - thanks a lot Bill.

+Susanne Stelle - thanks very much, you are right!

Thanks very much, Bill +William McLean - I'm glad you like it.

+Lynn David Newton - thanks so much. Yes, each of these is a box, measuring maximum height of about 6" or 7" but usually around 3-4 inches. The Medusa (collaborative piece) is about 9" high, and the top does lift off to expose a 'box' with the wearable pendant inside.
Handling (with appropriate care) wouldn't harm it and people keep all sorts of small and special things in these boxes. Baby teeth, engagement ring (for the proposal), jewellery, memories, etc... :D
