Welcome to my new blog

Me and my family

Me and my family

 

My name is Keven McTaggart and I own a business called Anything on a Clock.  Over the last 6 years, we have made hundreds of clocks and most of them have never been seen by anyone other than the customer and whoever the customer shows the clock to.  During the Christmas break, I decided that I wanted to share some of these clocks with the world and the story behind them.  But before we start, I’d like to tell you a bit more about me and my business.

I had a hobby of making photo clocks that I would give to friends and family.  I worked in a sign shop so for the background I would use scrap plastic for the background and glue a photo to the front of it.  After I drilled the hole in the front of the clock so that i would know where the clock would sit, I turned the clock over and attempt to drill a 3 inch hole in the back with a 3 inch Forstner bit by using my hand held drill to house the clock parts.  For those of you who don’t know about Forstner bits drill a flat bottom hole and plastic is quite slippery so without a drill press, so you could only imagine what kind of mess this had make.

Anything on a Clock was started in the spring of 2007.  One year earlier, we were blessed with our son Nathan.  My wife is disabled so I took the 12 month parental leave.  Fast forward 1 year.  Now Nathan is 1 year old, my wife is still disabled and needed a lot of help and I am scheduled get a new job because I lost mine when I took the parental leave.  That is when a friend of ours came to the house and told us about the Douglas College Self Employment Program.  I applied, got accepted and started my business, Anything on a Clock in April of 2007.

Now you could imagine, we had to drastically improve our product, which we did.  By the fall of 2007, we had a product that anyone would be proud to hang in their home.  We have had many amazing customers over the last year that I am proud to show you the clocks that we have done for them.

We are also going to share with you some testimonials that we have received over the years.  I hope you enjoy what you see here. Please come back and feel free to leave us a comment.
