Update ~ The company is closing this location and I have health issues again - recuperating strongly and very much on the mend. No longer working. Jan. 2015. I am working again - full time.  Meanwhile, I am planning to keep working on my ideas in general in the evenings, still publishing and presenting them and making them public in various forms as well as continuing with my business ideas and implementation there of. Also, I am thinking about miniatures and miniatures of spaces and possible other connections/ideas with them. Maybe, maybe, maybe I will come up with some plans and post them. I am liking a modular/universal idea that goes back to a project I worked on in an Industrial Design class in the early '80s. .
Currently I am considering if and how I would like to try to manufacture these ideas. Please be considerate in how you use them, especially if it is for profit. I am continuing to work on my projects here and several for profit ones as well. I am thrilled with those who like doing the projects for themselves, or as in the case of a few of these projects or patterns, for use in charity bazaars - for example the wash cloth pattern. Please contact me at the email below if you have any questions regarding this issue. I am happy to have a dialog about these or other topics.
PLEASE NOTE ~ I have changed the contact email address. [Feb.26\] [March 2014 email@example.com] Also I have a web page started at http://www.whpscavengerhunt.com/ and other ideas on the way too.
