Announcement   I'm 65 & disabled with several limited mobility & chronic pain issues, and if those weren't challenges enough, I have become a new widow of practically negligible means. I'm a self-taught Multi-Media Crafter, Wood Turner, Spinner & Fiberarts Designer

The sole purpose for my ETSY shop has abruptly taken on a much more important mission and purpose than previously supporting my turning and crafting habits and supplementing our small Social Security incomes.

Last month my Beloved Husband of 34 years suffered a devastating Sub Arachnoid Brain Hemorrhage - Grade 4 of 5 - with Grade 5 being almost always FATAL. Grade 4's as severe as his almost never survive long enough to make it to the hospital! It's believed that my Beloved also suffered a severe heart attack brought on simultaneously by the severity of the bleed and pressure in his brain.

He fought SO hard for just over two weeks, but with more sorrow and grief than I can possibly express - quietly passed away in my arms, in peace, in comfort, and with his dignity intact, and opened up his beautiful new wings, and flew away Home to Heaven.

We didn't have anything of particular value or money, so with his utter true Faith that GOD would just take care of everything - I guess he never thought the small expense of making a Will or Durable Power of Attorney would be necessary for me, but then for what little it would have helped me setttle without a lawyers eating their pounds of my flesh - it really doesn't matter all that much anyway. The COSTS would simply be too much more than any "reward".

I tell you ALL of this because in the space of TEN minutes one evening - while settling in to watch a TV show together, OUR entire world came to a screeching and abrupt HALT!!! NOBODY is prepared for a Grade 4 Subarachnoid Aneurysm, with a devastating heart attack at the same time!!!

So unless you absolutely HATE your spouse or loved ones - PLEASE take my story to heart and MAKE out a very specific Will and give your loved ones a Durable Power of Attorney TODAY!!! I BEG you - No matter how strong, healthy and bullet proof you may THINK you are - Our Lives STOPPED within the space of TEN MINUTES! So - PLEASE - Protect your family TODAY!!!

Meanwhile, If nothing in my shop has immediately piqued your interest, I love creating custom pieces and would be happy to turn the perfect Spindle you've always wanted! Just convo me to get started.

Unless otherwise stated in my listings - all currant items are complete finished products as shown and described and are ready for shipping!

Please understand and be willing to accept that my turnaround time for custom made items may be delayed somewhat during my recovery period while I MUST focus my attentions on settling my Beloved's affairs however I can, and getting back to the point where I can EAT again... So that I can be strong enough to get back into my shop and create new and exciting Spinning tools, unique and beautiful Spindles and turning fine writing instruments for my ETSY shop.

I've fallen in love with turning unique high end quality writing instruments in all sorts of luxury woods, resins, acrylics, and even real semi-precious stone blanks. They're admittedly rather pricey, but they are OOAK highly collectible works of art that have been painstakingly hand crafted to last a lifetime. I love turning custom order pens, so feel free to convo if you'd like to have one made just for you.

Finally, I'm also a BABES Fiber Garden spinning wheel dealer, offering my ETSY customers a 10% discount on all Babe spinning wheels & products. Please convo for details & BABE product information.

PAYMENTS & RETURN / REFUND POLICIES: PLEASE take a few moments to READ my POLICIES Section carefully before making or completing your purchases.

Thanks for visiting my little Spinning Shoppe & look for ME on ~ RAVELRY ~ as: TheDreamSpinner Wishing You Happy & Colourful Spinning Adventures!

Love this bowl! It's just what was pictured and it's bigger than I thought it would be. I've been using it every night since I received it. Lovely work!

Gorgeous spindle! Beautiful craftsman. Great customer service! Can't wait to learn out to use this style of spindle and I think this one is going to be easier to learn on with the modifications. Thank you!
