Carving Giveaways OR Paint Em!

This is a photo of the end of my carving bench (which is also the computer table). I whittle often and probably whittle too fast. This is the result. I will be giving a lot of them away this fall, especially all the owls. One of our county parks has a heritage day where I usually demonstrate whittling, and give away a lot to interested kids. Most of the unpainted Santa's will go to Canada for painting and to generate charity money. But you can see what happens when one must keep ones hands busy. Thank goodness it's fun, and relaxing!

"The word "relaxing" was just corrected from the initial way in which I miss-typed it. The miss-type was "relazing". Maybe I have a new word that more accurately describes my actions.
