I’m Late, I’m Late!
At the beginning of this year I said I would be super organised and have all my pyrography Christmas gift range finished by the end of September. It is now the middle of November and the wooden pyrography clocks are not ticking as they are still a work in progress.
I have a little secret…I like to spend five minutes at the end of the day browsing Pinterest but the browsing has not turned into production hence I have a lot of wood in cupboards and not completed gifts.
At this time of the year our thoughts turn to finding the perfect gift for a relative, friend or loved one. There is also the last minute search for the easy to wrap gift for the dreaded secret Santa endured at many a workplace.
Years ago wherever you looked you could have a glance at a clock on a wall as we all did our own personnel impression of the White Rabbit….running and saying ‘I’m late, ‘I’m Late.
So where have all the clocks gone?
With the increasing use of technology in our every day lives we use the clocks on our phones, computers, TV’s cooker etc. and the traditional wall clock has become less of a design feature in our homes.
So I plan to finish my clock in time for Christmas, the template has been cut and the piece of locally sourced oak wood sliced and dried and I just need to pyrography the face.
I have 42 days until Christmas Eve – surely I can find some free time between now and then?
