Hello friends:

It has been awhile.

We’ve been busy creating and have been posting regularly on Facebook but have been away from blogging here for some time. We’re planning to get back to it with more of our work and that of others for inspiration. We’ll also offer some philosophical discussions, resources and challenges. All the usual stuff. We hope you will join us.


We’re starting this new blog effort by wishing you a very special


Canada Day 2020 is not a typical Canada Day for sure. There are no big musical celebrations or firework spectacles. Social distancing guidelines still limit gatherings in most places and many are unable to travel to be with family.

We are still planning some Canada Day traditions – wearing our red and white, hanging our flag in the window, going for a paddle on the lake, BBQing hamburgers and wienies for supper, and finishing the meal with a rootbeer float, and smores (in tin foil on the grill instead of marshmallows roasted over the fire – Nova Scotia is still under a COVID no burn order).

New  Adventures

We are also planning some time in the woodshop and studio. Watch for our new products, including some Eastern Shore themed items for an exciting new collaboration. More soon.

Enjoy your Canada Day. It might be a unique celebration this year but it can still be very special.

Up here, in Canada

Here is a small diversion  – a catchy tune that highlights a few of the traits and entertainments that make Canada unique and, well, Canada.
