Setbacks Happen

It’s to be expected to have times of setbacks but when they do happen, knowing this doesn’t make it any easier. I haven’t been able to finish out  my recent projects but the good news is that I am currently working on a custom 8 x 8 shadow box clock for a lady. The clock face is finished and it will be my first LED Display.
Sorry, I can’t show the design yet.

…by the way, I haven’t been feeling on my energetic side lately but this is getting better. I hope to begin work on my projects again and I’m getting new ideas as usual.

I’ll be in touch!!

New Projects

Since the giveaway started and ended, that space has given me time to start new projects and think ahead.

I’m probably going to open my ebay store and maybe an Etsy. I would like to offer some items from here but on the budget I’m working with, that type of an upgrade is not in the plans just yet, but I have some ideas on that end.

I’m thinking about bringing my blog over here to wordpress…..seriously thinking about it.

I have these three frames that I have almost ready for whatever I decide to put in them.

Not counting these three frames, I’m about to start a custom clock for someone.

Oh yeah, I have another frame I’m working on but I can’t show that one yet.

I sold two more clocks…I can only show one because the other is a gift and it hasn’t been given yet.

I have a pic of the clock but will have to get one with the buyer later on.

Well, that’s where I am right now….

A Needed Break

I had taken an unannounced break from writing and it actually felt pretty good…it wasn’t even planned, but I guess I needed it.

Although I haven’t been writing, I have been busy doing other things. I’m trying to keep my website and blog distinct from each other, making this one personal and the other strictly business…that shouldn’t be too hard huh? Of course after a little thought, this was my launching pad for where I am today. I’m sure I can come up with a good balance. 

Here are three frames I put together and I’m pretty sure I know what is going in each one….they may not even be clocks…. 

Not counting the frames above, I’m about to start a custom clock for someone.

On another note, my veggies are coming along rather well…the bell peppers are getting huge and I’ve had a few tomatoes and they are pretty tasty. I’ll have to get updated pics soon.

That’s all I have for now….WhatrUWorkinOn?

I Haven’t Forgotten

I haven’t forgotten about the giveaway I mentioned in an earlier post, but I am getting a later start than originally planned. I have the pieces cut and painted…now I’m designing the 5 x 7 face cover.

Should be ready to go here in a day or two. Details will be available then.

Thank you for your patience.

On This Father’s Day

I almost decided not to do this post but changed my mind again. I am reminded by events that brings perspective to what I’m doing with my life right now. The death of my brother sucked the air right out of me and it took awhile the start breathing again.


My nephew, my only sister’s oldest son had a stroke last year. He was fortunate to have someone with him at the time. His stroke was bad, but he is currently recovering. He is walking on his own and takes morning walks by himself. He stutters when he speaks and keeps apologizing whenever we talk…I keep telling him that he doesn’t have to do that. I really find joy when we do talk because he continues to make progress.


I talked to my sister today and find out that he has an aneurysm and will be having surgery. 


For whatever reason I didn’t find out until three days after the fact, that my third oldest brother suffered a stroke this past Wednesday and he too happened to not be alone. Although his was not as severe as our nephew’s, it is a stroke nonetheless. He was at home yesterday but will be off of work for at least 4 weeks. 


I can’t help but to think about myself and my family….what can I do for them. What can I do now that will be of benefit to them in the future. Life insurance?…sure. What more can I do? Some may say that insurance is enough. Not me. 


These aforementioned events have touched that nerve…you know the one. That is why what I do is so important for me. I value my life and all that God has given me. My abilities, my desires, my love for those that have come into this life behind me. For me, it’s not just a matter of raising your children, but helping them to reach and to achieve, to realize they too have goals that can be reached. 


So I continue to show my love by doing what I do in hopes that will be of substance to them in their future. Utilizing my time to build on the foundation that was started in my mind, many years ago…never giving up on that dream. 


With that, I’d like to say that my second clock sold this past Friday. Some of you may have seen the prototype


Here is the final design of the 8 x 8 clock…Rise Above…

MyQuesMark Rise Above Clock Design
Here it is in the shadow box I made for either wall mount or desktop
complete with painted frame

Here is Darcy holding his brand new clock…I wonder if he realizes he’s holding the only clock of its kind (as per design)
I would venture to say in all the world.
Thanks Darcy!

If it all stops here and now, in my heart I have succeeded….I don’t know how much time I have left and if I ask God, he wouldn’t tell….besides, I don’t want to know. I want to continue to work this time that I have because things are put into perspective,
On This Father’s Day
