I find doing something crafty with my hands is the best way to relax and take a break from a long week of school. Sometimes, I think it’s best if I do something with no deadline or standard, but still naturally makes me settle into a focused flow state. I finally finished wood burning, now I have to stain, finish and replace the clasps and corner pieces. Actually, as I write this, I realized there are some more fairy tales I want to add as scenes all around the box, not just the front. I should put off staining for a while unless anyone knows if you can safely burn wood that’s already stained and finished.
