Stepping away

I realized last week how completely burned out I am sitting at my computer. Decided to step away for the week and do something, anything ... in my studio ... creative, cleaning. Am hoping it helps with my creativity when I come back to the computer to work.

I made 18 new Brantlers ... a little larger than the first ones. And have 10 more ready to cut. David got a Keyhole router bit so make it ready to hang is a cinch. I got it down to quite a production line. It was so much fun. Here are a few that I finished.





This one is really my fave of the bunch!

Love them. Am now looking at my lichen-covered oak branches (dead, need to be lopped)in a whole new way.

;) the arborist took many, many branches that I was saving out of the yard ... but I saved a couple of good ones ... now I am on the search for new ones! Does that mean I need to take a mini-road trip?
