I retired early so that I could spend the rest of my life bugging my wife. So far so good she will tell you. In the last year I've learned more about computers and the internet than I ever thought possible. I've learned to type with all of my fingers, and have only worn out two backspace keys on my computer in that time. I stumbled upon an internet site called Etsy.com awhile ago and fell in love with all of the wonderful handmade creations found all over the site. I could spend hours looking at the works of these amazingly talented people. I have begun carving out a small niche on this site, and with hard work (actually fun) and a dedication to providing the best customer service possible I hope to one day have folks look at my little shop and think it amazing as well. Everything I create and list on etsy is a labor of love for me. The hours I spend in my workshop are like time spent in a time machine. If it weren't for a built in clock (my bad back starts to hurt) I could lose all track of time down there. If you have time, please feel free to take a look at my etsy shop at www.woodentreasures.etsy.com and let me know what you think.
