Back At It

I’m happy to report that I am back to working on past and future projects, and getting myself on a schedule that will work for me….not easy. Most of the graphic designing is done late evenings into the wee hours of the mornings, so my daytime is mostly frame work…cutting, glue, testing to see what works and making necessary changes.

A new project I have is another custom 8×8 shadow box clock. This is a digital clock design that should be done soon…the clock is currently in shipment to me. Once it’s here it won’t take long to finalize everything. As you can see in the picture below, the facial molding is being put in place. 

Once the moldings are in place and secure, I will cut the glass for the front of the clock. The frame won’t be painted until the glass is cut.

Yes, I cut glass too
I’ll be working on this and other frames I have in waiting. They will not all be clocks. 

If you remember, I had sold two 8×8 shadow box clocks but didn’t post any pictures because one was a gift item and I was waiting for permission to post the pictures trying not to spoil the surprise. But one of them was another Rise Above design.

The one on the right is the gift clock


I’m going to get an update on the status of the gift clock because I really would like for you to see it.

I’m also updating my website as I go along and will soon have clocks for sale and please don’t forget to visit my online store.

If you have any questions or comments…I’m all ears!

A Gifted Talent Given


Let the talent of the talent shine

Brightly as gifted it was given, absolute

Astounding, the beauty of the gifted talent

How bright the talent?…matters not

Resting it aside for still of time, wasted

For it is not the one to give the talent light

But true to the giving, it is His light shining

Once the talent is motioned thru space of time

Wonder not the beauty to the eye

Savor in His gift, the talent given to shine


Phase 1 Is Done

If you checked out my post from yesterday, you saw that I was at the beginning of organizing my piles of screws, nuts and bolts, washers and an assortment of other items that has accumulated over the years.







These are the items I had within eyesight….I’m sure more will turn up shortly. How many phases do I have ahead of me?….not a clue.

It Doesn’t Take Much

I took these pictures in our back yard earlier today.


It doesn’t take much to appreciate the fact that change is on the way.

If Time Did Stop

Time ticks away by the seconds
Minute by minute, hour by hour
Awake we all, as the sun beckons
Rise from the bed, into the shower

 Starting the day that awaits
Fresh from head to toe
Off to work, or whatever in states
Going here and there, to and fro

But I wonder sometimes
If time came not to be
Also do bells and chimes?
The waves from the sea?

No more songs from birds
No more wind or rain
 Silence, we hear no words?
 Hearts feeling no pain?

Would there be peace
At long last for sure?
Or does life cease
For all to endure




My thanks to The Poetry Palace for this award.


Blessings come from God, and people with love
The award you see, yes the one up above
Has been given to me, for the poem I wrote
“If Time Did Stop”, with lumps in my throat

I wrote it with care, and much in mind
And they who voted, were oh so kind
I write this with love, and appreciation
I accept this award from my, writing station





I Have Been Dog Tired

For the past three days after dinner, I have found myself zonked out cold for hours and waking up in time to go to bed. I don’t know what has caused this activity to continue on a daily basis but I do hope that it finds an end….like….now.


Well for one thing, I’m not getting anything done….zip…nada….nothing…zilch.


Maybe I should work myself into a frenzy….naaaa….that would just make me even more tired and I probably would sleep until the next morning. 


It has been a couple of weeks at least since I’ve popped out a new design of any kind….not counting a button I did for MahoganyMama


You would think that after sleeping for hours I would be awake enough to get something done but that hasn’t been the case until tonight…uh….this morning. But I don’t plan to stay up much longer cuz I have to work tomorrow…uh…today, and if I stay up much longer I’m afraid I will continue this vicious cycle.

I’ll give you one guess what I’m wishing for.



So I bid you farewell in hopes to regain some kind of normal daily after work procedures…love y’all and thanks again for stopping by….I wouldn’t be doing this without you.
