Wow, I can’t believe I’ve let this lay fallow for over a year. 2016 Started off busy, and then ramped up to something more intense with events every weekend during the Fall. I get great ideas for topics while I am working, but am usually too tired to write them up after I finish working and come in the house.
To bring y’all up to date, curved paddles are now a standard item on my display. I have a form that allows me to make one each day if I need to. My second form did not turn out well, so I ended up donating it to my friend’s 12th night bonfire. That’s what I do with all my scrap as well.
Sam, my leather worker is back to making some things again, so I have crops, thumpers, and sheepskin floggers in stock.
I’m laminating more paddles than ever, they are strong and I can make them lighter than ones where the blade is made from a single piece of wood.
I changed up my listing of past events to streamline it for event coordinators to see where I have been going over the last few years. I’m always very happy when I get invited back to an event year after year.
Last year I was able to teach a few classes on impact play and spanking. They are always fun to do.
