Who will hold the key to their special memory?
There are many wonderful things siblings share, but there is one I’d like to chat about today. I think it is one of the most special bonds brothers and sisters share - memories of their mother.
My first bird painting, an Eastern Bluebird, may not rival Picasso, but it's a satisfying achievement.

The task was to makeover a tired and falling apart fence/wall to disguise the air conditioning units located in the the garden area. Doing our part to cut down on waste in the landfills we planned an echo friendly project using as many recyclable objects as possible. Color, shape, durability, and function were key elements in our design process. This was an investment of time that was well worth the results. What do you think?
These decorative cinder blocks are part of a larger project to makeover a tired and underutilized garden area. The area was flat with some existing plants and river rock, but pretty lifeless and boring. Keeping with our mantra of to cut down on waste in the landfills we planned an echo friendly project using as many recyclable objects as possible. The inspiration came from Mexican style tiles, I love the colors, and the feeling of playfulness in the artistry. Color, height, durability, and function were key elements in our design process.
"To others this may appear as a unique piece of artwork but for me it represents years of memories with my Dad. This carving opens conversations with friends as they visit our home and we are able to share a piece of his story and our memories together. Thank you Ed and Janise for helping to keep his memory alive as he lives on in our hearts each day." CJ & Crystal

We are very happy to announce that we have completed the large task of making 15 farm tables and 30 benches. A true labor of love and each table set has it's own distinct characteristics. We can't wait to see them in place as we celebrate our daughter and future son-in-law's wedding. :) Read more about it
Ed assembling the legs on farm tables
As with most everything the Crows make, there is a story. Ed, the “Father of the Bride” and a wood worker, wanted to make something special for his daughter and future son-in-law's wedding. He loves projects, so in keeping with the venue of the wedding and his daughter's dreams for her special day, he decided he would hand make tables and benches.
