our wedding


Well it finally happened. Liz and I got hitched. Everything was wonderful. I thought I would post photos of the whole ordeal on the blog. If you want to see all of the photos from the wedding you can check out my flickr stream here

We did almost everything ourselves. We grew cat grass in buckets, picked wild flowers for the tables settings. I vinyl cut signage, we put lighting up in the barn, we made decorations from coffee filters. We had hay bails, little mini cake pops of ourselves, our friend Sara Davis made an awesome ANVIL pinata (which was filled with scratch off lotto tickets and mini booze bottles!)   We did so much I barely remember being at the wedding.  It was like I was watching a TV show about a wedding where the groom was a sweaty nervous mess.  When you are in the thick if it I guess it just breezes by.   I do however remember Liz being by my side the whole time.  It couldn't have been better!!

We had our wedding at Liberty View Farms in Highland, NY. It was an incredible venue. Farmer Billium and Rene were great! We could not have done it without them. On a sad note, their dog was injured and needs surgery. I don't normally do this via my blog but if you have a spare couple of bucks please find it in your heart to donate it to them to help offset the cost of the removal of George's leg. Donate here

I will shut up now and let the pictures do the talking

only five days left.

Only five days left being single. I just saw these videos and thought I would post them. A little escape from all the stress. Go check out Great Spaces. If they get 2000 likes they will make the first episode. The first episode is out.

NC BLACK tools

Just saw this article about NC Black. As you remember they came to my studio and did an engraving workshop.  Les and Andrea came by a couple of weeks ago.  They seem to always be on a whirlwind tour, conquering the world one workshop at a time. I thought I would add some more photos of their other tools. I especially love their larger Macro Spiculum hammer and Nano Nylon Mallet.
It seems like they are constantly improving designs, making new tools and just really care about metal tools and everything that comes with it. I can't wait to see them again and hear all of their metal tool "picking" stories.  If you can take their workshops.
