Finally! I'm back and I'm packing pictures. I'd actually left my camera at Bookworks so it took longer for me to get my hands on it than I planned. So, a week later, here are Simon and my valentines for each other. Simon made a cute woody token of his affection. Ha. My favorite is that he carried the thing into our room, doubled back into the kitchen for a hammer and was pounding away for five minutes... I had no idea what was going on. The furniture nails, obviously. His attention to detail goes unrivaled. :)
His friend has a huge CNC (computer numerically controlled) router that cuts all this out after you program the design in. Pretty spiffy, huh?
And this is Simon's new day planner. I had originally made him a sketch book, but since he never used that, I stole the pages to make sketchbooks for River and Zeb Bennett.
I couldn't just leave the little book with nothing between the covers so I gave a day planner a go. It's a lot more time consuming than I expected and I did mess up... counting and going thru the days of the week over and over is apparently more difficult than it sounds.
