~ Outta My Gourd and Burning with Creativity! ~

I have a new obsession.
and I need a new obsession like I need another hole in my head...
burning pictures into wood and gourds
has grabbed me by my creative horns and
this is not letting me go!

here are a few that I burned yesterday
{yes, yesterday ~ all of them because I couldn't stop}
these are burned onto our wooden paddles that Peter makes here in his woodshop
from our very own poplar trees, grown, cut & milled right here at Notforgotten Farm:

and here are a few gourds made into ornaments ~
the gourds were a gift from my sweet friend Anita,
and she also makes these beautiful Wool Feather Trees too!


I have had such nice emails, comments and pm's from folks wondering if these will be for sale...
my answer is YES...
I am working on a slew of things for our
Christmas Open House here on December 6th & 7th ~
I think I will also hold an ONLINE event here on this blog
where I will offer similar and other burned items.

I will be posting more about that soon!

in the meantime,
to see more photos of what I'm stitching or working on

Have a beautiful and creative day my friends!!

Blessings from the Farm
