Dear Friends of
Sadly, there will be no more
Carol, my dear wife, passed from this life to her glorious reward in
Heaven on February 11, 2014. She has fought a valiant battle against
MDS, then leukemia, since June 2012.
Many people have drawn inspiration from Carol’s work, first begun in 2000,
and have gone on to become excellent felters in their own right.
Always giving, Carol donated 10% of the proceeds from her dog sculptures
to a rescue organization for that breed and often donated
groups for raffles and fundraisers..
To her many friends and customers, we are so very grateful for your
support over the years.
I will keep this website active for a time so that some of her beautiful
work will live on in pictures.

perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with
immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable,
and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come
true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”
“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting
of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He
gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."

Experts have observed pachyderms' behavior and
concluded that they rank among the smartest in the animal kingdom.
And it seems that the old adage that elephants never forget may be
particularly true in the case of matriarchs, who lead the herd and encode
what's necessary for survival, such as food location and family
identification. The dominant females build up a social memory as they get
older, enabling them to recognize "friendly" faces. The older she is, the
more effective she is. Her death is tragic for the group, and poachers
usually target her, as she possesses the largest tusks in the herd of
Elephants also travel in packs and when the group gets too big, the eldest
daughter breaks off to start her own contingent, yet she never forgets her
roots. One researcher witnessed a mother and daughter elephant recognizing
each other after 23 years of separation.
(Good, huh? But forget about this one: Elephants eat 160 to
350 pounds (72 to 158 kilograms) of food each day!!!)
