timing is everything, most of the time, and some thoughts about the show

hi folks i know most of us find it hard to find time to do the thing we love to do, i been blessed this past year to be able to do so, its been a wonderful time, and year, its been over a year ago i started the youtube videos, and wow, if you would have told me back then what this would be like this year i would not believe you,,,, the amount of work, really isnt work if you love what you do, and i love to carve, most of you do, do we ever get paid what its really worth, sadly no, if you make enough to cover your tools and some little added things then your doing well,
i believe timing is everything, and most of the time, you have to decide it right or not, i have no idea what or how the show will go, cause it the first and only show i ever had a table ... i am planning other shows around the area, did some phone calls to get needed information. so it will depend how this show goes, i know the economy is terrible in the states yet, and i really dont believe we will get out of this mess for a while, the media wants us to believe its getting better, yeah for who, the average person i know is not out of this downturn, but i cant complain, if it goes well or not, i will be happy, happy that its been a wonderful year, and happy to at least to give it a try,
nothing venture nothing gain, is a motto i kinda live by,,, as many of you know i ran a farm with my folks for 23 years, i know all to well what its like to work your hardest and not get any money in return,,and paid to stay in it for another year, its was just part of farming i accepted it, but also we had good years to carry us, but then i had to decide, and i decide it was enough, farming days are to a crawl now,some things are still going on but nothing big as before, again timing was everything, and when the worse of times came , there was always something better, i didnt always see it, but i know the one that did see it, and to him i am always grateful
so i wait to see what it will be like, and if it is good i keep going if it is bad , i will learn from it ,,, then there is something better around the corner , happy carving , arleen
