I am posting on here as well as the Time Twins facebook site. I am trying to build an email base to update all my friends of new blogs and offers from the Time Twins. You can send your contact info to me at info@dbmacks.com. I do not sell or give out others emails without their express permission. Also, I want everyone to know that this is the last day to get your free copy of Finding the Sea Masters at: http://tinyurl.com/ofgztr8. Please if you have read any of the books, please leave a review at the book page on amazon. Reviews help me sell more books.
The last request I have is please share the link for the book with your friends. I need to get the word out that the book is now available. Thank you in advance for your help.

New Season

I am starting a new craft season. I need to figure out what would be a good product line.
Last season I did a number of wooden toys as well as bird houses. Sales were slow. I took home almost everything I brought to each show.
Now I am looking for ideas of what people want to see made. I have a small wood shop. I am grateful to any ideas.

In December 2013 my wife was diagnosed with stage one Triple Negative Breast Cancer. She has been given a good prognosis and is responding to chemo very well. 
In August of 2012 I was laid off from my job after 17 years with the company. Even though I knew the company to be extremely dysfunctional I was hurt by the actions of the owner. It took me almost a year to work through the betrayal and lies.
I give the background to set the stage. At 58 years of age it would have been easy to just give up. But that just isn't who I am. With the encouragement of a family friend I started my own wood working business. This allows me to be there for my wife for appointments as well as bad days.
I have developed  my own line of products and am working on producing and selling them. I created a web site (http://mackscraft.com) to sell them as well as a store front on Etsy. 

I guess what I want to say is if life stacks up against you, don't give up; be creative, be adventurous.

I have posted two blogs this week dealing with life lessons. One is called Focus and the other is Life Lesson #2 (Planning). 
There is nothing really new, just a reminder of important things. You can view them at http://dbmacks.com/blog.htm
