I know that everyone out there wants to know who the winners of the cookie contest are.  So here goes.  Drum roll please.  Of all of the enteries from all over the US it turns out that the winners are relatively local.  Both are from Maine.  How about that?  Have I rambled on enough yet?  1st name drawn was Clare Marron and the 2nd name drawn was Tracy Wilson.  Congratulations ladies.  You will be receiving your dozen assorted cookies next week.  Don't forget to come back here and brag about how good the cookies are.  Glen & I would like to thank everyone for entering our little contest here.  Remember you can always go to Glen B's website and order cookies to be deliver to that special someone or to your own door.  Happy Holidays everyone!

Contest Time - Win Free Cookies!

Everyone likes cookies, right?  And everyone likes contests, right?  Especially easy ones!  My buddy Glen has started a website for his families homemade cookies.  They have been making them for years and selling through stores in his local area but they finally decided to open a website to share the cookies with a wider audience.  They make 6 different kinds of cookies.  Trust me I have tried them all and they are very good or to quote one of my daughters "Dad, these are awesome!"  Check out Glen B's Homemade cookies by clicking here.  So to the contest.  First off, the giveaway.  One dozen assorted cookies shipped directly from Glen B's to you.  We will choose two winners and each will win a dozen assorted cookies.  Two ways to win, we will pull one person's name from all of the people who reply to this post, either comment on my blog or facebook or twitter and say that you want to win.  One winner will come from all of the people who are signed up for my email newsletter.  So if you haven't signed up for the newsletter yet better get crackin'.  You can do so by going to my homepage and there is a spot on the lower left to sign up for the newsletter.  We will pull the two winners names on Friday, December 17th at 1pm and the winners will be announced shortly after that.  Sorry but the contest is open to residents of the United States only.  Good luck!

Happy Holidays!

Wow, it's been a while since my last post.  It has been an unbelievable 5 1/2 weeks since that last post.  I have been to New York City, twice, for shows and than home to fill orders and get ready for my last show.  Some how we even managed to squeeze Thanksgiving in there.  I then left for Chicago for my last show of the year and had a great time out there too.  I would like to thank everyone who came out to the shows to see me.  It's always great to see old friends and to meet new ones at the shows.  The drive to Chicago and back encompased over 2500 miles mostly in snowstorms both coming and going.  For now it's back to the shop to fill orders for Christmas and then maybe a day or two off.  After that I will get back into the shop and start preparing for next year which promises to be quite busy.  I also have some design concepts rattling around in my head that I'm just itching to try.  I promise it won't be nearly as long until my next post.  Until then I wish everyone a very happy holiday!
