Desk calendar for 2015

Sorry for not posting anything new for nearly two months. I’ve been busy preparing a craft book.

If you click the below link

you can view the PDF file of chapter 5 of my craft book. The file may take time to load. Also the first page is blank. Don’t be put off. You can print the pages you want. I’m giving you permission to print and make paper models for non-commercial purposes. Enjoy!

I hope to post more regularly from now on, about once a month.



Introducing mobiles

Nativity (showing the three scenes) 2013

Today I assembled this mobile based on the December design of my calendar for next year, “The Earth All In It Are The LORD’s”.

Please check out “Galleries” “Mobiles” to see other mobiles based on this calendar. On average a mobile takes about three hours to make. They are very relaxing and make great room accessories. They need cleaning from time to time; a lens brush on a rubber bulb is the best device for this purpose.

Craft book sample chapter

I have finally managed to add a craft book sample to “Galleries”. It is very much a work in progress. Today it seems the very forces of hell have opposed me. I took me eight hours to convert a Word file into a jpeg file. My daughter took eight seconds to suggest the very method I eventually used. Tonight, WordPress is responding very slowly so I have taken about eight minutes to type this paragraph. They just thanked me for downloading a new version. I have yet to thank them.


In fairness to WordPress I think I’ve discovered the slowness has a lot to do with my choice of browser: now I realise Google Chrome allows much faster editing than Internet Explorer.

Next week, on 16th November I hope to refine the craft book and report on further progress.
