Slowly getting back to work

Beer Bottle to Arrowhead Booklets
I'm trying to get back into production.  I haven't been out to the workshop yet since I got back from holidays, but maybe today will be the day.  I need to make a batch of pressure flakers to go into knapping kits for the Craft Council Shop and other spring orders.  But I also have the booklets to assemble and that's much warmer inside work. 

Too Green for January
Not that its cold here.  Its still very mild in St. John's - we had a green Christmas and its been a pretty green 2011 so far as well.  I just need to psyche myself up to get back to work.  The next few weeks promise some fun stuff to keep busy with including some Little Passage (Beothuk) arrows and a Dorset Palaeoeskimo knife or two.  While I'm working on those I might play around with some obsidian knives and arrows.  I like working obsidian in demos and for fun, but I'm on the wrong side of the continent to get much use out of it for artifact reproductions.  However, some holiday reading gave me a slightly more fantastic source of inspiration for some obsidian pieces.  

Plus there's this haircut to fix.
