for my birthday, back in january, my boyfriend john gave me a woodburning tool with several changable tips. I have really gotten into woodburning, but it is hard, and slightly dangerous. I have successfully completed two woodburnings. the first is a small piece for John of the ECU pirate. I drew it on the block, then burned it, then painted, then stained. i think it turned out well.

After I completed the pirate i decided to tackle something more complex and detailed...the longwood seal. I love longwood and couldn't imagine having gone to a different school. part of me misses the good ol' longwood days and my best friends and i still reflect on our time at LU. But, i digress. I used the same procedure for creating the Longwood woodburing.
