I will say that I'm happy to back it carving spoons. After the travels to Spoonfest and Taljfest this summer, gathering wild rice, etc....I'm back in my shop (yurt) carving, it feels great. I'll be focusing on getting a large inventory for fall and Christmas sales, many will go to galleries as well. Some of these spoons will be finished and go up for sale on the web too. I have a few more spoon carving teaching gigs in the next few weeks and 100 more spoons to carve. I like to yell this once in at least once a day while carving "SPOON!"
