    Love the Timber sign with the bull’s head – you could do one those yourself, couldn’t you? πŸ˜‰ Had to think about the wicked ink shop and kind of hoped it would be a witchcraft related bookshop πŸ˜‰ But a tattoo parlour makes more sense.

      Thank you. I think it is a tattoo parlor. The routing on the sign is likely above my skills. They do have computer controlled routers that exceed my budget. Cheers

        I always think the handmade look is much better than the computerized one πŸ˜‰ The same goes for cooking and baking – if it looks perfect, than why bother doing it yourself πŸ˜‰ Unless youΒ΄re professional, than it should look perfect, or as much as possible. Have a great weekend and hope youΒ΄re not freezing on the pink hat march! πŸ™‚ Cheers!

        Routing letters is one of those things for when I have more time. Like if I ever retire, for real. I agree that those imperfections give items a homemade touch. It was rather warm today (13C) for the march and as a result the crowd swelled from 70,000 people to double that. And they had initially only planned for 25,000. It was a bit chaotic but good fun.

        It’s good to have something to look forward to, especially on the creative side πŸ˜„
        So glad you had warm weather for the march and that so many people participated! πŸ˜ƒ Cheers!

        Is should be interesting. I am accompanying my wife to a woman’s march in Boston. It is to give a message to the new President about values that are important to people.

        The best hope is that they use this energy to organize and vote in a new president in four years. There is not much we can do right now about many of the orders that he is signing. And a big part of our country supports them. It is not a great situation.
