well, now, wasn’t today just an exciting one for MsDebbieP?!!!! !

Yes, today I had the pleasure of meeting with Linda and Paul Fulcher, Publishers of the Canadian Woodworking Magazine.

Canadian Woodworking is one of our gracious sponsors who have supported our Summer Woodworking Awards! (Two of our Award Recipients will be receiving free one-year subscriptions to this super magazine.) Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Linda and Paul took some time out of their busy schedule today to have a quick visit. We had a wonderful chat while sitting out on their deck enjoying the summer breeze and beautiful surroundings. “How beautiful”, you ask?? Well as you might notice in the following pictures, we were surrounded by WILLOW.. Yes, Willow. I was in heaven. The fence was willow. Furniture was willow. Decor around the yard was—willow. Uh huh.. Willow plus spending time with two wonderful people .. and talking about woodworking. Life is GOOD.

As you can also see in the photos we had a few laughs. They got a real kick out of MsDebbieP’s adventures and got right into the fun of it.

Notice the willow fence
Can WW Publishers

Yes, indeed. joke-sters, joke-sters “put your finger in her ear” too funny… .. oh and although you can’t see much of it, there is willow behind us.
those Publishers: what jokesters

And then.. a quiet time roasting marshmallows over the open fire… how relaxing.

Who will I be meeting next? One just never knows!!

Those seem like some nice folks! On the Canadian Woodworking website forums, they do a nomination and vote for forum user projects to appear in their great magazine. It’s a neat feature. Their forums have some really skilled, knowledgeable and friendly participants as well.

Looks like a great time! Sounds like you were “Wallowing in Williow” ;-) What, no smores? How can you have a campfire without smores! I think Martin should splurg and get his editor a 1960’s VW Micro bus for your travles and be sure to put stickers from all the places you visit on the back. : ) Honestly, it looks like you had a great time and its great to see that they have a wonderful sence of humor.

Really nice!
Yes the magazine has a great balance of what to/how to/ professional advice and members’ contributions.
This months’ members gallery item is amazing. A 13 piece “completely transportable” walnut and maple huge and magnificent bar. Yah.. Definitely worth an article in a magazine.

Wallowing in willow .. haha good one.. yes that’s what I was doing :)
No ‘smores for me.. all the chocolate?? It would be bad for my girlish figure (no need to laugh publicly everyone.. I’ll do enough for all of us).
Hmmm a Bug Bus… I can picture it now, can’t you Douglas??

Had a great time today :)

they will try… they leave for the big Vegas woodworking show the following morning and have a lot of things to wrap up before they leave.
But, they do have to eat.. so maybe they will be able to pop by.

Looks like you are having a great time Deb. Well deserved.

I can’t imagine anyone on the site representing us better than you do. You are the heart that has helped Martin put a soul in this website.

That is our Debbie, touring all the places where woodworkers go. Oh yea, I like your new tour bus too.

I wonder what the editors thought when Debbie arrived with her coat and cap? It looks like it was a summer day.

I think we can add Debbie to the celebrity list now…

Well, that wasn’t one of Doug’s “pictures”
Rick didn’t know who took them…

Spid-ato man is not in the picture.

Potato Parker took the photos!

How’s that for logic?
