Okay, so I did a tease in the last post. Barb said I was "mean" to post it as just a teaser. Oh well, that is me, heart of stone! Ha ha - NOT!
My friend, Tom the carver, has a blog that Nick, one of his creations is using to post a journey. The blog is Whittler's Hollow. For this entire year, Nick is telling of his journey from the Swamps of Louisiana to the his completion as a work of art. Nick will become a Santa or Father Christmas figure from Whittler's Hollow (the website - not the blog).
Tom also carves other creatures. One of his creations is a GolfBall Critter. If you golf, or know a golfer, then you have experienced or heard how sometimes even with a perfect swing, the golf ball goes far astray. ( Yeah, it happens to me when I play miniature golf, I haven't graduated to play with the big boys.) Well folks, the secret is that inside those seemingly innocent golf balls lurks a GolfBall Critter. That little man in there decides he didn't like the way you addressed (hit) the ball (which is his home) so he does a sneaky little spin and carries the ball far from where you wanted it to go. Tom carves away the outside of the ball so you can SEE the little man inside.
See for yourself:
The stand is not included because that is a stand from one of my pretties. I just used it to support Mr GolfBall Critter.
Can't you see the mischief in his eyes and in the look on his face?
I confess that this is a cast version of an original. Originals are kinda pricey for a giveaway. I am not feeling that generous!.
There will be more added to the giveaway in the next day or so.... But for now, here is the deal:
To be entered to win the GolfBall Critter you need to comment here AND go to Whittler's Hollow blog make a comment there and become a follower. Some of you are already followers. Great news for you- all you have to do is comment here - and if you have never commented on Whittler's Hollow blog make one comment over there. Are you cool with that?
I know there will be some type of fabric added to this. I THINK that Tom has a bag for the Critter. This bag is handmade by his FATHER who was 93 when he made the bags. I hope Tom finds the bag to add to this as no more are being made and it is a collector's item.
And maybe I will add some notecards printed with my art.
Does that sound good?
