Well thought I would give everyone an update on the Etsy store. So far so good I guess, this like anything else is taking some trial and error to get it off the ground. I have met some good people on this site and have gotten a good amount of attention to my store and my carvings, that's the good news. On the flip side I haven't had a sell yet but know it is just a matter of time. No one realistic about starting a business expects to sell out on the opening day. This will take time but I have not only gotten great feedback from veteran carvers but have also gotten great words of encouragement in reference to my carvings themselves. So good Lord willing and the creek don't rise, sales will come.

Before I forget I have a piece of cottonwood bark that I need to do something with so I have prepped it and will begin carving within the next day or so. I am thinking of carving two faces on the wood but keeping the piece as one solid piece instead of cutting it into two.
as always happy trails
