I once again had great success in the 2016 handmade show in my community in December. Total of 75 carvings were sold. The picture shows my booth setup. The two following pictures shows after two hours into the show and third is what was left over at days end. Since the show, the remaining carvings have been sold. I have also carved 12 others for special orders plus four more yet to do. The size ranges from small ornaments up to 12 tall. I carve them and my wife paints them.

It is really satisfying when people appreciate your work and are willing to pay good money for it. Good for you! I wish I could see some of it up close.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Congratulations on good sale, your projects deserve it. I wasn’t that lucky with my tissue boxes and teal light holders – finaly I gave them all for free as gift to my friends and relatives. Obviously it depend on community.

I might add that the price range was $10 to $95. The larger 12” tall carvings were the more expensive as you might expect. Once again..thanks you for the support.
