In this day and age it seems folks are always on the go, and going with them is there Coffee and Tea. Hence the creation of the insulated travel mug or go cup. One of the drawbacks of these wonderful creations that keep our favorites drinks hot or cold is that they are quite deep and an average spoon is just to short to properly add and mix our additives of choice. My latest creations and additions to my line of Hand Carved Utensils is the Go Cup Spoon, at 8" in length it easily reaches the botoms of most if not all Travel Mugs. And fear not, if by chance yours is extra deep I Happily accept custom orders and will carve one to any length you specify. Please feel free to visit my Shop where I hope to have some listed for sale within the next few days.
These were a custom order designed by the customer, and an absolute pleasure to create. After a multitude of emails working through the design I think they turned out extremly well. They are Carved from Honduras Mahogany and the rings are Aluminum which I cut and milled from the bottom of an old T Fal frying pan. LOL The best use I've ever gotten out of a T Fal Pan to date.

These are just a couple of pics I took of some of the plants we have growing on our patio this summer, the summer which is now half over sadly. But then the glass is still half full so we best enjoy it while we can for soon enough the snow will fly once more. Even snow can be beautiful for that matter if only it wasn't so cold.

Muchas Maracas Entry for Etsy Coproduction Contest Maracas are the quintessential percussion musical instruments, paired rattles made originally from gourds. African tribal, South Pacific Island, and the Latin and South American cultures traditionally associated with the rhythms of maracas all developed a variety of hollowed dried plant parts using seeds, beads, beans, or small stones inside. The actual name maraca for a gourd rattle is thought to have originated with the Araucanian people of central Chile. The maracas listed here have been painstakingly and lovingly handcrafted as a team cooperative effort by Carey Haslam (wildwood), Barry L. Loewen (canadianwoodcrafts), Yazmin Wickham (aprettyrock), and Sandra Porter (HolesomeBeadsJewelry) for Etsy’s Coproduction Contest with great attention to authenticity and functionality. The contest entry can also be seen or purchased here. http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=204862
