Ever since I started preparing items for my Etsy Store I was toying with the idea to include an Advent Calendar in the list. My biggest issue was that I could not find a wooden item that didn’t look flimsy. I wanted something sturdy, something that would last for a long time and could be handed down to the next generation.
As they often say, doing your homework pays off in the end- I found such an item. I was extremely excited when I received it and my hands were itching to start working on it right away. Unfortunately, as always happens, I had so much other stuff on my plate at the moment that I had to postpone it.
Woodburning the piece was a wonderful experience. There is nothing else that you can compare to the pure creative process of imagining how something will look like when it is finished. Although I knew that this piece would look gorgeous when it is done, I have to admit my imagination didn’t do it justice. I love it so much that I was tempted to keep it for myself and not sell it.
Isn’t it stunning?
