Goodbye 2016

Merry – Happy and all of that, what a year this has been! It went too fast in our opinion.

As a business, we continue to learn as we go. Creative Woodworking grew to 8 gallery affiliates this year but 2 are closing, so we are down to 6. That’s okay.

Bud and I also still have our full time day jobs, and that’s okay too. van de Ven Construction and Mt. Ascutney Hospital is where you can find us during the week.

We added new designs including this brick pattern cutting board, which received a very positive response.

Wrapping it Up

Wrapping it up this year with our last event. The All Saint’s Christmas Bazaar, which was held at St. Peter’s Church in North Walpole, NH. It was a small event, very friendly folks and a good experience.

The All Saint's Parish table was busy all day!
