I want to thank everyone who attended my 2012 Fall Open House and made it a great success! More friends than ever came and bought my carvings. You all continue to amaze me with your continued support of my work. Thank you all so much!!! I have neglected my blog since the end of March (I can't believe it has been that long) and will try harder to keep it more current. Right now I am working on two large fall/Halloween orders for my dealers, with many small orders from the show and individuals. Any new carvings that I create, I will try to share with you. My problem is that I am always rushing to ship the order and don't have time to take any pictures. That should be one of my New Year's resolutions. Maybe I will try to start that one now. We'll see how it works.

I'm sorry the Baylor Bears lost, so now I am a Louisville Cardinal fan!

I carved a Baylor bear for my friend's sister's surprise birthday and was quite pleased with the results. And now I see that they are still alive and well in the Elite 8 NCAA basketball tournament. GO BEARS!!!!!

After designing the red paisley heart plaque and
getting lots of wonderful feedback (thanks, everyone!),
I have done a white heart with black paisley (and would
like to paint a black one too), a heart with "love" in
different languages, and a heart lollipop. They each
cost $25. I am still working on an antique version
of the paisley, and a really grungy one, but they are
taking a little longer.

I have packed up all my Christmas decorations
and have moved on to valentines. My first new
item is a Paisley Heart plaque and I am really
thrilled with it. It actually was my husband's
idea and a good one at that. And he says he
isn't artistic. Hopefully I can come up with
a couple more for this year's holiday.
