I can't speak for anyone else but personally I find woodburning to be pretty relaxing. Spending 3-8 hours hunched over a piece of linden, focusing on precisely creating details in the wood grain with a hot stick. Add a good audio book or some interesting podcasts and it's a pretty dandy way to spend the day. Starting a business, even a small one, involves a certain amount of stress so it was pretty nice to be able to sit down and focus on these for a few days.
These two rounds were burned with patterns I'd purchased long ago from Walnut Hollow.
My wife and I saw How to Train Your Dragon 2 last weekend and while I came out of the theater with a desire to recreate Hiccup's helmet it was my wife who got back home and started doodling dragons. She doodled a fair few but one in particular caught my eye and I couldn't not use him for some pyrography. He's just so adorably derpy!
