So as I wait for the ground to thaw before I can do any gardening, I thought I'd work on a project. Well the project is to make photo trays that I can use for my art shows to display and store my photos in when not doing shows. So there would be a top and bottom. I took the time to work out the dimensions, and I even made a cardboard version to see how it would look. Well this morning I started the project and keep in mind that I am not a carpenter, but I do know my way around a workshop somewhat. Everything was going smoothly for the most part until it was time to put the sides together. Now I asked the guy at the hardware store should I use screws or nails. He said screws, on the other hand Mom says nails. I went with screws and glued the seams. But the screws split the wood in several places despite pre drilling. Now if I had it my way I would buy the trays, but I can't find what I am looking for. And I don't know any local carpenters who could do the job. I need trays that are between 3-5 inches high and from 8-14 inches wide and about 22 inches in length. If anyone out there can tell me where I can find these sizes please let me know. I would love to keep my sanity! Though I am not one to give up easily. So I am back to the drawing board after I have gained some of my sanity back. I will persevere! I will make my trays and they will do exactly as I want! I hope. But if anyone know where I can buy them that would be great!!!
I will be making some changes to my website soon keep an eye out! www.cindiresslerphotography.com
Hey everybody have a great day!!!

If this isn't a sign of spring! I absolutely love spring it is my favorite time of year. I now go out every day with my dogs and walk the property looking for signs of spring. There is still alot of snow, but it is disappearing. I'm eager to start working the garden, but that's still about 2 or 3 weeks away. I can see small buds on the trees and lilacs and azaleas. The robins are back in town. I feel re energized! Spring in a great season. Everything is fresh and new. Have a Wonderful Day!

This photograph I just took today and it is a small stream within my tire tracks on my driveway which will be mostly mud once all the snow has melted. It will be tough driving in and out of the driveway. A little 4 wheelin in the drivway.
I am so anxious for spring! I can't wait to start up my photo shoots. I'll be starting my tomato and broccoli seeds indoors in a couple of weeks.
I have pretty much tied up my loose ends with the business including finishing my taxes yeah! I have some new products that I will be adding to my website soon, as well as all my shows. I only have 2 more shows to hear from which I am hoping will be this week and I will then put them on my website www.cindiresslerphotography.com for you to see.
I guess now I can take some time and kick back and relax a bit. Not! I'll find plenty to keep me busy. There is always something I forgot about.
Have a great day everyone!
