Sometimes these Friday updates are short but, that is sometimes how I am. I like to explain things to the point. It doesn't make for lengthy wording. Sometimes I am not even good with my words.
After writing about time and trying to rush things I did the very thing and hurt my self a little. See even thought he words of rushing and slowing down were there I still hurt myself. Simple not paying attention to the simple things and feeling have to rush. feeling pressure from inside the shop and outside. So learning to take things at my pace and slow down. Now I will have to smarter and cautious. That is a good thing to make a better more accurate job on things.
So I have a few projects that I am finishing up. Instead of boring you on what I have and have not got done. Which in all honesty is probably not enough to brag about. I am still finishing up the head board bench and getting some finishing touches on flag cases. I want to get everything done now or tomorrow, but with all things good takes time. Getting the best from something takes a great deal of time And should never be rushed. sometimes I have pushed my self faster to go faster and then just have to redo it because it is not right. Lesson to be learnt is take your time and go to the right flow of the piece.
I am writing about the things I get done for the week. lets start with last Saturday I donated a few pieces to a kids cancer fundraiser to help get him some funding for bills. That is neat and I like that I am able to that. So after that I did a show and got to meet people that like my page follow it and like it. That was a nice experience to be able to be able to talk to people that already like and follow me and be able to get them to give me feed back about it. Good and bad are always good to hear the rest of the week was working in the shop getting projects done and spent a couple mornings with the wife ( that time is always cherished). Saturday will be a finish day to finish projects and get them done.
So I think everybody knows when I write these I don't do much editing. I do go through and make it sound as well as I can. I think that I want to say I just do it myself so people can hear my thoughts. Anyone that knows me knows I can't write the best, but I will keep trying.
I have a show this Saturday and made a few pieces for a kid cancer fundraiser. I am also working on pieces I need to get out one I have been waiting on till I got the right tool to make it a very good piece. I like being able to donate some stuff to help out, but being as I do this on a small scale I cant do it very often as I don't have the biggest cash flow. One day I will be able to donate a lot more and be able to donate.
Time management can be one of my hardest things when I get a project to get all the details, find all the stuff to make it. Then you have to draw it out make sure it fits well there is always more to it then everybody thinks then you get the question how long. well when I have never made this thing let me guess of this other project I made I give my self a couple extra day of leaway ( I always push the leaway) so yea I don't guess well and that is what that is most of the time guessing. When I have made few hundred of something I will know better I think at how long something will take.
Sometimes it can be hard starting something. When you have a spouse, friends, and family helping it makes a difference. You will get on hard on yourself and frustrated it is not easy getting started, but it can be worth it.
