more new dvds to come , now calvin in a santa hat available soon

hi folks, needless to say i been very busy making new updated dvds on the projects done last fall and christmas,, i just finished with the CALVIN IN A SANTA HAT AND MINI MUSHROOM dvd,, i have yet to make the pattern for the size of the cat,, etc and the cover which should be done in a day or so,, also in the process of making yet two more dvds of both cone santas, and a couple of simple projects along with them,,, my goal will be to make available all the projects on my youtube on dvd,, if i finish with the last two i will be up to 43 dvds,, i lost count how many projects, i would guess about 70 or so,,, many of the dvds have more then one project if the project is not to long,, as i plug away at finishing these,, i just want to take the time to thank each of you that follow this blog and my youtube channel, along with the facebook,, its been a wonderful time for me to see how things keep growing,, i hope to have many more projects up,, and hope that i will be able to bring new ideas for those that have been following me, along with interesting new ideas that you will be able to use,, from sharpening, to finishing your carvings,, all this isnt done in a day but so far almost three years of work,, a lot of work, but the kind of work that you enjoy,, i think the word work is not the right was to describe it, its truly a labor of love,, i love to carve, and to make the videos,, i enjoy both,, the best of both worlds, the old of carving and the new world of computers,, keep carving folks,, and enjoy it along the way,,

some new dvds coming soon, in a few days

working today on the new dvds getting ready for the show coming up ( delaware vally show ) and next month the lancaster county show in march
have four new dvds almost ready

2, CONE SNOWMAN, WINTER TREE, WOODEN LIGHT BULB SANTA ORNAMENT
3, SHEPHERD, PENCIL SANTA ORNAMENT
4 JACOB (CONE) AMISHMAN ( MYSTERY CARVING) AND THE MITTEN
hopefully i will get two more dvds done i think this makes 45 dvds i lost count LOL

i got behind making my dvds as i was finishing my projects, so today i thought i best get going cause some of you asked if i have dvds on some of the new stuff, so today was the day to get moving ,, folks it takes time,, like you i enjoy the carving very much,, and i also enjoy the computer,, but i have to be honest,, i just needed an extra push to get motivated to get these done, and nothing like having to be ready for the next show,,, i will have to update my other blog with the list again,, i may redo the whole site and get it up to date,,, if any of you work with computers and blogs and youtube you know the amount of time it takes to get everything up, so i do my best in the next few weeks to do just that to get updated on everything,, thanks for stopping by hope to see you at one of the shows if you can come,, keep carving ,, arleen

keep on going ?

hi folks, its super late,, and i thought maybe a post in my blog would be in order,, hope you all enjoy the mystery project,, it sure was fun to do , and from the reaction it was a bit of a hit,, i plan to do more of these from time to time,, i just had some more company from the great north( canada) some of my family came for a weekend i called any group more then two the canadian invasion lol , or the invasion of the north lol..,. we had a good time,, i was not able to get up there last year,, and i dont see anytime soon that i will be able to do so,, caring for my folks, has me very busy,, first it was the farm that kept me home now the folks,, lol good thing i dont care to travel alot,, otherwise i would not be a happy camper, but one thing i can do most anywhere is carve,, lately i been looking into other options for my shop,, it just not meant to be for now,, i keep looking, i guess the frustrating thing for is i almost get it, and something happens and it doesnt work out,, now i come to believe that if i am not meant to have it then the timing isnt right, also,, there must be something better,, now folks it isnt that i havent bid on things, and plan things ,, it just gets block for some reason or another,, and well instead of feeling nothing will ever happen,, i now believe it has to be something better out there ,, now i not saying this that it has to be more expensive,, nooooo what i am saying that maybe i looking and finding , that is more sensible.. and useful,, but until i find it i will keep on going, with looking and searching,, and making my videos for my youtube channel,, lol i have to say sometimes hunting for it is more fun then finding it, but how sweet it must be for finally find what your looking for,, take care folks and keep carving,, :)
