Carving Up Some Memories

Now is a good time to share my Carved Santa & Angel with you.
A while back I took a couple of wood carving classes.  I thoroughly enjoyed them. I have keepsakes that will be in my family for years to come. 
Here is the Santa I carved from a block of wood.
All this cost me was the cost of a class, and a few sore muscles.

and from another block of wood, came this beautiful Angel.

(No injuries to report on this one)

While I'm at it... let me show you a couple of other carvings I did.
My little Cafe Sign.
(In case you don't know, I have a thing for Cafe and Bistro signs)

And of course.. A Bistro Sign!
All this one cost me was the cost of the class and a nasty scar on my hand.

Yep another of myTeacup Lamps.
Such a pretty colour

ok, back to the carving...

If you ever get the chance to take a wood carving class, try it.
It was an enjoyable day and I came away with a few things that I'll always cherish.
