My current one is a wood carving of a pumpkin and chipmunk I did years ago.

Carol - it's so good to have you back.  Are you also back to baking Wink ?
Today I made another batch of Nestles peanut butter chocolate chip.  The batch I made yesterday (or day before?) is gone ..... not one cookie went to the freezer stash. 
And I did a batch of the chocolate caramel things ..... I do that recipe all the time and it works all the time.  Tonight they didn't rise or expand.   Came out of the oven as slightly larger balls than I put in.   Did I forget baking soda?  Is that what happened?
Funny thing - they are still delicious and still pretty .... they are just very small.

Nancy,  I'm glad to be back! I'm not baking yet! I have to lose the weight that I
gained while I was in MI. I had a pumpkin whoopee pie that was awesome!
Went out to eat too many times!  Had a great time!  Now I'm having a rough
time trying to get on VBB!  This site has been down a lot lately!

I like the pumpkin carving.  The chipmunk is very cute.  Are the cats jealous? Wink

I always have a hard time getting one to stay, so I have a tendency to leave one if it works.  Last time I did it I had to choose a different picture as they said the one I had chosen was too big.

Gale - Back when I was carving I never sold a piece myself - I just put it in a box and mailed it to a gallery.  They were in charge of the selling, sales tax, advertisement, all the things like that.  They mailed me a check each month.
Around 2005 things got pretty shaky in my life and I haven't carved since then.
Now, by finishing my basement and turning it into a wood carvers dream, I am going to start again.
Hopefully I will sell again.

Nancy,  Your avatar is beautiful and good luck with your wood carving. I'm
sure you will be able to sell again. God Bless You!

Gale, That painting of the tiger is beautiful.  I have things on my wall that
my sister made for me. It makes me feel closer to her and makes me happy
that she isn't in pain anymore. Your sister did beautiful work. God Bless You!

Gale - what a BEAUTIFUL painting.  It's wonderful that you have such nice things to remind you of your beautiful sister.

Carol - you too!  It's great that you have lovely things from a lovely sister.
