Here it is Dec 16th already and my crasft season has ended. Oct 16th marked my first FULL year of craft shows. I learned a lot this last year. Mainly, when setting up or getting ready for a show, you REALLY haven’t a clue as to what will sell and what won’t….... I thnk it’s like the coined phrase, “Ya pays ya nickle and ya takes ya chances”. SO TRUE. I know one thing (OK, maybe a couple) LVDTs are always a popular item and I will continue to make them avasilable to folks. As my daughter travels the globe working for the US State Dept. she gives my peppermills to fellow workes as gifts. At different shows I have sold my LVDTs to folks all over the US and that pleases me to think that others (world wide) like my new found craft. To all of them, THANK YOU.
NOW, for the happy part of this blog. In a few hours I, and my lovely bride of 36 years, will depart our home/shop to catch a plane to start enjoying our Christmas present to ourselves. We board a cruise ship for a Mexican Christmas Cruise Holiday. If I don’t gain 20lbs over the next 2 weeks I am going to be disappointed. So, as George Carlin used to say, I have a lot of “STUFF” to do so I am wishing all you LJers a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS (if you celebrate Christmas), a HAPPY NEW YEAR or a JOYOUS HOLIDAY. Thank you for reading, participating and being part of our little community. Martin, I think LVDT needs to be a tag…..


See you all in January
