Ok ! fighting depression all day today i decided to take a stab at the shell carving . Its not bad but I only managed to carve 2 and I will post pictures perhaps tomorrow.. I later logged onto Etsy and was able to hook up with some pros ( super sellers) but they were not exactly dealing out much advice or hints. We have three sales possibly on the horizon and it is frustrating hoping either a check arrives or a Credit card clears before getting to work .. who knows maybe there will be work tomorrow.
