It has been a while since I’ve posted to this blog website and for that, I’m sorry. I decided it was time for an update as to what is going on in the Cross Cut Creations shop. Just because I haven’t posted here, doesn’t mean I’ve been silent on other platforms.
Products: I have shifted some from finished products and craft shows to turning blank making. I still turn quite a bit, but I’ve also gotten into resin and hybrid blank making for other turners. My resin of choice is Alumilite clear slow. I use this resin with PTownSubbie molds, Caster’s Choice mica powders and Divine Pigments (Divine Island Design) to color the resin. I make pen blanks, knife scales, bottle stopper blanks, handle blanks, and ring blanks. Pen blank variety packs are available on this website if you click on the “Shop” tab and click on “Pen Blanks.” I’m hoping to add different types of blanks to the website soon. The hybrid blanks (resin and another material) I typically keep in stock are wood burl, cholla cactus, deer antler, sweet gum pod, and pine cone. I also have resin only blanks available. If you’re looking for a specific blank, feel free to contact me.
My Online Store: With a huge assist from Steve Nealon at Harneal Media, I have updated and added to the logo products available in the store. If you are at my online shop, click “Logo Products” and the options are there. If you’ve been there before, you know that I had shirts, mugs, and stickers. In addition to those items still being available, there are also a variety of hats (ball cap and winter), hoodies (pull over and zip up), neck gaiters (masks), and 3/4 sleeve shirts! A variety of sizes and colors are available for almost all products. Any logo product you purchase helps out the Cross Cut Creations shop and is greatly appreciated!
Amazon Affiliate Program: I am now part of the Amazon affiliate program! What does that mean? This means that if you use any of my affiliate links (found on this website under the “Tools I Use” tab), I get a small percentage of whatever you purchase using said link. I get a little more if you purchase the tool listed, but your entire purchase qualifies (regardless of if you purchase the tool you clicked on or not). This means that you are helping me out without spending anything extra! Any pictured tool with an Amazon label is a link that qualifies.
Platforms and Social Media: Obviously this website is active, but you can also find the Cross Cut Creations brand on various platforms and social medias!
