Bob's been busy!



Most of you know that Bob enjoys carving figurines.   This year he has been busy carving things for a craft show our church is having.  The other night he got some of his things out to price them, so I snapped this picture.  He's got quite a few old fashioned Santa ornaments and figurines, some snowmen and some of caricature figurines.  Our daughter Laura, who is a floral designer will be there with some Christmas arangements and swag, and for those of you that know my sister Cheri - she'll be there too.  She has some great food gifts, which I'm planning to buy a few of.
If you live near Allendale, stop by Lighthouse Community Church on Saturday and get a little Christmas shopping done!

They are amazing!!!! Such fine detail! And what a great cause.

Wow Mari, Bob is very talented! So much detail. I don't know anything about carving, other than the fact that I love it, but he really seems to have a knack with it! I hope the craft show is a big success.

Hugs!

How long does it take him to create an ornament? That is absolutely gorgeous! Your family is filled with talent.

What an amazing talent your husband has Mari! I'm sure his carvings will sell quickly and become treasures for many lucky families. Such beautiful detail on each carving!

I wish I lived close by. I'd stop by the craft show myself!

Wreath making, cooking, carving, floral arranging....your home must be incredible! I'll take one of everything, including what's in your crockpot or oven!
Good luck with the sale, although I don't think you'll need it!

Mari,
If I lived closer I would love to come to your church craft sale! Bob's wooden Santa’s look amazing, and I would enjoy seeing your daughter's floral designs.
I heard your side of the state got heavy snow. Did you get any or was it higher up? It was freezing today, but we just got a dusting. Next Thursday we might get dumped on if it comes down from Canada. My husband is itching to try out his new “toy” snow blower.

P.S. Sorry about the delete, typo!

I doubt that Bob will be bringing any of these home. People will grab them right up. They will make great Christmas gifts.
