Hello gang

I apologize for my lack of checking in but I am happy to report that my work is finally starting to catch on in my new home. I do have a tiny little garage to make a mess in now – it’s small but sufficient, light enough and as usual, never warm enough.

I have entered a Christmas show – it cost me quite a bit for a booth and wouldn’t ya know it, I have sold the major pieces meant to display so I am rushing like mad to get something together to hang on the walls.
Oh I’m not complaining, just not used to this many sales.

I still love it friends, so very much and I can’t wait to get up each morning to continue.

I will say that I have discovered that while Dremel says all models have the same speed – I’m curious about that claim as it seems the more expensive models do sound faster and seem to cut better, so I am now using only the 4000. I am not impresed with the Merlin tool at all.

I hope you are all climatizing to your upcoming winters. Fall hasn’t been too bad here at all, but snow is promised for tomorrow.

Sincere regards to all.

As usual, you blew me away.

Words fail me.

Another masterpiece, Jordan. I don’t think, correction, I KNOW I won’t ever get tired of looking at your work! As soon as I pick my jaw off the floor, I’ll be able to think of something above the superlatives that have already been said about you and your work.

Hi Jordan, another exquisite project, the details are so perfect. I seemed to have missed something I didnt know that you had moved. Glad to hear you are doing well and all the best to you at the Christmas show.

Thank you for sharing another MASTER PIECE Jordan.

Jordan, another spectacular master piece! Sounds like you are getting the attention you very much deserve….your works are some of the most amazingly realistic carvings I have seen….I am up to carving Santa Claus’s again….but they are certainly nowhere near the realm that your stuff is in. You are so very lucky to enjoy what you do….I like my job ok….but I like my hobbies much better….too bad I can’t combine the two and survive.

Your new camera is taking excellent shots by the way (if you used it here)....and the previous one is still here waiting to take some pics (way better then my old piece of junk – now I just have to crank out more work so I can use it…lol).

Stay warm in the cold….and keep sharing these extaordinary works with us.

I always thought “bodice” was a term related to females! Guess that goes to show just how ignorant I am! Nice work!

Hello friends and thank you all for your lovely comments. You’ve always been so very supportive of my work.

Reggie – I hate my new camera! Yes, it has a lot of pixels but I wouldn’t get a point and click again. I’m looking for pictures from you!!!!!!

Dez – you are correct but since it wasn’t really a shirt and it wasn’t really a vest, it was best described as a bodice…although in this day and age, who knows what terminologies will change.

Nice to see so many familiar faces.
