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!

Wow, good for you. Crafting is one thing, selling quite another. It sounds like you're successful at both. How fun (yes and tiring) to travel all over for your shows. I used to do shows with my ceramics (for 10 years before I took up writing novels) and loved to watch people's reactions when they saw my creations. Happy holidays.

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I'm spending all of my time in the shop making a ton of things for all of my christmas orders.

I like the travel part, except when I get stupid and try to do it all in one day, I used to be a road salesman so it's like second nature to me. I agree with you about the peoples reactions. I usually have several "Wow, how did you do that?" pieces in my booth at shows and they draw a lot of attention. Which makes me happy.

How is the writing of novels going? Have you been published? If so anything that I might know?

The best of holidays to you.
