It’s an early morning rising today … dark as the inside of a cow (daylight savings time? yeck). I’m planning a XC ski day a bit later…and until the sun brightens the sky I decided to join the thousands of Etsy storefront owners and open my own… Check it out. What is it called? … (what else) … Wanderingkeri on Etsy. **
There are two ‘products’ … Killer Cool Urban Shopping Bags and Handcrafted, Rustic, Black Walnut Wood Spoons. I get nervous just sitting and wasting my time on my computer, or watching a movie at night … remembering my Grandma Penrod, I took up my crochet needle and during long winter nights or soggy spring days I crocheted. Then, I ‘saw this article on Pinterest’, and thought, “I can do that” … the results of my nervous hands and learning a new skill these ‘products’ are … Killer Cool Urban Shopping Bags and handcrafted black walnut cooking spoons.
A few years ago Sweetie and Leonard bought an old, living, black walnut tree from a farmer somewhere south to make gun stocks. They cut the beautiful thing down; Sweetie fell off the trailer while wielding the chainsaw and knocked himself a good one, then the guy they hired to slab the wood took a heart attack and … well, all’s well that ends well (so they say) and the gun stocks are aging and (here is the point) I now have lots of ‘scrap’ wood to ‘create stuff’ with when an idea noodles my mind.
Well, the sun is almost up and it looks like it’ll be a good day on the XC track at the Ponderosa State Park in McCall Idaho, it’s about an hour from the ranch. Y’all should come up some time and bring your skis or snowshoes.
