Sunday, February 7, 2010


We live in a pretty small town, of about 30,000, so it comes as no surprise that our tallest building is a dorm at the university that stands at 13 stories. Pretty tall for this area.
Unfortunately, the poor old building, built in 1969, is contaminated with asbestos. They determined that it would not be worth the cost of repairing it, so it is now being demolished.

I assumed a building of this size would be imploded, but they seem to be going about it a different way.

Notice anything different?

We got an eerie feeling rounding the corner and seeing this. It's strange seeing such a large structure in this condition when you've seen it another way you're entire life. It also made me think of Haiti and other natural disasters and warring nations where things like this happen without control. It must be a horrific sight in those areas.

Here's a few more pics:

Crazy huh!? On a brighter note, they will be replacing it with a shiney new dorm; much bigger and better, I would assume.

Easter WIPs

This may sound funny, but it feels great to be swamped... at least when it comes to art. I can never really get myself into gear until it all piles up at the last second, and here we are again!

I have STJ to finish, several special orders to work on, and hopefully a few new Etsy pieces.
Here's a touch of what I will have to offer for STJ this month. As far as I can remember, this will be my first ever Easter ornaments, and I'm not sure why; I love Easter! I also have a larger Easter piece in the works for the hootenanny, and a new Halloween piece as well.

I've decided I should probably put my moon man project aside for a while, or at least until the 13th, when STJ updates. Here's another update pic on the big fellow:

Anyway, my coffee mug is almost empty, and so is the pot, so I better get ready to tackle this big pile of work in front of me!

Introducing the Tin Rabbit......My Mom!

My mom has been toying with the idea of starting a blog for quite some time now, and has finally decided to take the dive!
