web_IMG_2366web_IMG_2361 - CopyWell, we did it. It was cold and windy but everyone who attended had a great time. Even amongst carvers, there was camaraderie. We even got invited to come visit a local wood carving workshop.. woot woot. Michael and I will definitely be checking that one out. Especially since I bought way more tools than I’ll never to carve pumpkins.

While we didn’t get best overall we did snag the Carver’s Choice award, which to us is pretty dang good. To get voted for by other carvers, we couldn’t ask for more. So we are very delighted at our win.

I wanted to thank Mike & TeriJo Mustard  for their support, CNY Awards & Apparel for nominating me to do this, and of course my amazing husband, Stephen Hesler-Mondore for always telling me, “You can do it”.  Without all of them, I never would have tried.
