no more pinterest

Well as many may and may not have noticed I no longer have a link to my Pinterest page, which is because I no longer have a Pinterest page.

Thanks to all who pinned my carvings and followed my boards.

Unfortunately lately I started getting a different group of followers and a few of them had pictures
that would take you to a tumbler page that had extremely explicit pictures and mini movies. I have always tried to keep an eye on who is following me and where the links lead. Maybe I have over thought this but if you can get to explicit pages from links off of my pages then I feel a certain responsibility for you being there. I couldn't find any other way to resolve this issue so my Pinterest page is now closed. I don't know how or if this will impact my sales down the line but if it does so be it. I am a mom and pop shop, I see most of my sales during the Christmas season. I will carve whether I make a sale or not so worst case scenario my desk becomes a bit more cluttered with carvings.

On the carving front the heat and my sinuses have moved me back inside and I will begin carving with knives and gouges again. There are a few things I want to work on to strengthen my overall skills as a carver and of course it is also deep in summer vacation so am hanging out with my boys.

The picture is simply because I hate a page with text only and since it is summer and everyone needs to stay hydrated I posted my robot RH2O. This water cooler comes to you so you stay at your desk and keep working. I am considering posting some note cards in my shop with some of my various cartoons but haven't made the final call on that just yet.

as always happy trails

  1. Good job, mate! I agree, as a content poster and representative of your business, you do have a responsibility to patrol the links from your work. Not many share our ethics, but then that's what makes us shine like lights in darkness.
    God bless.

    1. Thank you Rich, I appreciate your words of support. If the links on my pages aren't fun and uplifting then why am I doing this, and as I said if this impacts my sales, so be it. If that is what it takes to make a sale then I might as well shut down now and be done with it.

      God speed my friend
