It seems like every time I start thinking, I really need to start blogging more, life gets unexpectedly busy, I'm lucky to have five spare minutes to turn on the computer, and blogging goes completely out the window. Well, now my son is napping, my husband is relaxing downstairs, and here I am, taking a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Christmas to write a little note.
Christmas is always a busy time for craftspeople. I am finally beginning to make a go at turning this wonderful hobby into a small side-business. I did a craft show with my dad, an amazing woodturner. You can see his site at www.aroundthewoods.com. We had a great time, and I was able to sell a few carved golf balls and some very cute bird tree ornaments. Since then, friends have also been interested in buying golf balls as Christmas presents. It has been a great boost to see that people enjoy the small things I make. I even received a letter from one buyer at the craft show, saying the blue jay she bought brings a smile to her face every time she sees it! These are the little things that make my day.
Below is a picture of some of the many golf balls I have carved. I hope they give you ideas of fun creations to make for yourself.
