Christmas is about here. Those of us who like to carve Santa's are about done for this year. We've spent the year carving Santa's to be gifts for friends and others; or maybe for sale. Our carved Santa's might be PINS, ORNAMENTS, or SHELF SITTERS. It's nearly time to start carving for Christmas 2017.
Here's something to think about.
Not all of our carved pieces are of the same quality. Some are truly surprisingly special (in a good sense). Most are probably just OK. And, well, others nay be less than just OK.
We try to carve all our pieces so that they turn out to be exceptional. I don't know what happens, but some times all the stars must be in alignment, our B/P and sugar is well in the good range, the coffee is good, we don't hurt and ache. The result can be an exceptionally nice piece.
Take these exceptional pieces and keep them separate from the others. These become the higher priced pieces if you sell, or special gifts for special people.
Here's my place for the better done Santa's, to save.....A canister found in a flea market for 20 cents.
