Wink Works In Progress

So I'm trying to be a good gurl and get on here more, but... well, I'm just not a good gurl, I guess.

We're real close to getting the electric fully installed; my electrician co-worker is supposed to come out and take the measurement for the outside wires that will run from the workshop to the house, and give me an idea on the fuse box and outside outlet we want on the workshop. 18" is deeper than you think, when you have to dig it by hand I had told Ken I would rent a machine for it, but that didn't happen. Oh well...

Here's a few of the signs I cut over the weekend (21st and 22nd) and one or two re-do's/repairs. I'm hoping to get them completed this weekend with the poly and that. The last sign needs some touch up to fix the red bleed that happened. Irks me when that happens... forgot to do a step before I put on the color. OOPS

I recently took my eyeglass holder I made to work (to hold the drug store gasses I had to buy when I forgot mine at home). I showed it to my co-worker, and it was pretty much a demand that I get a table at our craft show at work in December, and two people telling me they want one. So, I'm in the process of getting patterns together and get signs and crafts put together, and redesigned my business card on Vista Prints online in case I need them. (got two banners, as well. I'll share when I get them... I'm stoked.)

So that's my latest. Hope everyone is doing well. Have A Great Week!

Looking good Barb. But you might want to not use any more Disney characters. Some years back a day care in Florida had an artist paint Disney characters on the wall. Innocent enough, right? After all they weren't going to sell them or anything. But the Disney corp somehow got wind of it, and got a court order to have the pictures painted over, which did happen. The day care then contacted the Warner corp and asked if the could use their characters. And Warner told them to go ahead, there will be no charge to do it - big business, selling the right to use copyright items. Disney has really changed since Walt died, and not for the better. So, potentially you could get some trouble if you continue using them without permission. I don't know if they would charge you for using them or not, but thinking the probably would. But it won't cost more than a phone call, or e-mail, to ask and they might say it is OK.

I love the doorbell broken sign. DING DONG!

Disney is very protective of their images, so when you contact them asking permission, be sure to tell them this is for a hand made sign, not for multiple reproductions. Better to clear it up rather than have them catch you. There are lots of stock images of cartoonish characters that are in public domain. You can use images of a cartoon duck, but not Donald Duck.

My electrical setup was a 50 ft. run, buried 18 inches (his ditch witch), a box, breakers in the main box and the sub he put in, an 8 foot ground rod, 3 20 amp circuits. It cost $1,500. I did all the interior wiring and ran wiring out from the sheds to the sub panel in water proof flex tubing. Don't forget to put nail plates over any spot where the wire goes through the studs. Don't want to run nails into the wiring.

Well done as always. I would appreciate further details on the holder for eyeglasses.

Signs are looking good Barb. Need to get that electrical done so you can insulate before Rick does.
