How ironic that is was artwork this April Fool's Day. Sort of dovetails with my Box of Art prank.

They don't even allow bicycles in the building I work in.

In the adjacent, old building built of structural blocks, people bring their bicycles (that they rode to work) into the building, storing them for the day. (That was a long sentence with many subclauses.) I'm in the new building with walls not so hard. One day someone wasn't so careful when they were bringing their bicycle into the building, bumping the walls with their bicycle. After that, no one was allowed to bring bicycles into the building.

About 6 months later they finally got a bicycle rack outside the building.

Panicked when I read the headline. Then I realized what day it was and I laughed. The only April Fool's joke that worked on me today! Good one.

I don't know if anyone actually did. But I think some of us may have played an April Fool's joke back that we caught our toaster ovens on fire.

Some people tried, but I didn't fall for it. Mostly because I knew there was absolutely no way anyone would have had enough pink shavings saved up to have tried it. Not yet, at least! =)

I think those are considered junk now. If you want to get rid of it, I can take it.

I would like to try carving with them, but from what I've heard I'd never be able to go back to my other tools.

Just wondered as I saw a new 3 piece set on e-bay for $30 or best offer and that included 3 blocks of Mastercarve.

Haha, I'm glad you scored it! I can't drop more money on procraftination supplies right now, so I was just going to find the listing and cry in front of the screen for a little bit.

I just searched eBay the other day, too! But then I ordered some modified gouges and some stampeaz goodness, and there goes my budget for a good while. I'll score a Staedtler one of these days I hope! :(

It would have cost more but the Mastercarve brought down the value. They should have sold them separately. :)

procraftination supplies

Is this what you call it when you're carving your donation for an event in your tent the night before, or when you're carving and the dishes have reached the ceiling. For the record, either one works for me.

Don't worry about having to go back to your other tools. I am still using my first Staelders, with periodic honing to slick up the blades. I stopped counting carves after I passed 200 and something, and I'm nearing the end of my third carves logbook, each with 100 pages, and some pages have more than one stamp image.

Yes, they will go on forever. Will anyone fess up to throwing them away when they got dull (back when they were plentiful).
