With the holiday season creeping up on us, it seems overwelming to think of all that needs to be done.
Sorting through those old decorations... Fighting the crowds at Hobby Lobby... Finding the time to transform your home or office for that holiday party... And of course after New Years Day, time to put it all away for next year.
We offer many options to ease the stress of holiday decorating. Wether you're wanting to turn the entire decorating project over or just wanting assistance with theme.
When I started cutting up worn bike tires, there was no way to predict how this was gonna turn out. As I started to place the treads in various designs, I began to see mountain ranges. I am fascinated by the mountains. Even as I child, my face would be plastered to the window on winter trips to Angel Fire, NM. In my early twenties I found out for myself, the mountains of New Mexico are like hills compared to the San Juan Mountains. I would get hypnotized by thoughts of summer hikes up the continental divide and snowshoeing at Molas Pass. Only when you are trekking can you really take in a 360 degree view. To be humbled by nature's grandeur.
The tribal design was only by accident. It wasn't until I was half way through with the design that I was told it looked tribal.
These ski poles were purchased at an antique store in Walsenburg, CO. After doing some research, I found out they were used by Ecko Jarvinen in the 1928 olympics (the 1st official winter olympics). At the 1928 winter olympics, he finished fourth in the nortic combined competition and 22nd in the ski jump competition. He also competed in the military patrol event which was held as a demonstration sport and finished second with the Finnish team. He won an individual bronze at the 1929 FIS Nordic World Ski Championship in Zakopane.
