Well, girls, here is what I've been doing. I only just started this after elk season 2006. The first 5 I made all went to my best friends for Christmas. They and my husband were the ones who convinced me to to keep making them. The baskets all seem to have a personality of their own. I really enjoy making them. Especially through a winter with no snow!
I have sold quite a few just here in town. Word gets around fast here. I now hope that someday my baskets and bowls will take off and be a nice retirement supplement. I have 2o or so years to go before I retire, so that should be enough time to catch on, huh? Or maybe it will get going well enough to pay for my daughter's college by the time she graduates. I'm dreaming, I know. Might as well dream big! It could happen.
