Who else is going to toot your horn? nothing to be sorry about, congratulations.

Bryan said...

Just remember, if someone else is tooting your horn, it probably means your car is stolen. :-)

nice writeup! something tells me you'll have more of them in your future (anyone who follows your blog would hope so, anyway!).

your knack for producing high quality postings on the web, both excellently narrated and very thoughtfully composed photography are a joy to review.

Congratulations! And well deserved!

Pete said...

Awesome Kari! Congrats on a really great article. Looks like they captured your passion for the craft quite well.

Eric said...

Great article!
Totally deserved laudatory comments on your accomplishments.
Beautiful smile!
Way to go!

I think you are doing a great service by getting the word and passion out in traditional media. Perhaps you piqued the interest of a few local people to investigate your passion. And breaking a perceived gender barrier is also a good thing (IMO). So toot your own horn! And keep making beautiful tools--I've always wanted to learn chip carving, or any type of carving, but I still have lots of basics to master before I get to that point. For now I'll sit back and enjoy the work of dedicated carvers such as yourself.

Oh, come on! This "toot" doesn't even meet the minimum daily requirement.

Now, please be seated while we, your faithful minions, increase the decibel level. :)

I love the contrast between your newspaper photos and the steampunk photo you posted a while back, Now that's personal range.

(No matter what I do, I always look like a middle-age white guy who works as an IT manager.)

David Bignell said...

Kari, This is great and well deserved. Did you contact the newspaper or did they seek you out?

Charles said...

Good going Kari

Brian said...

Good for you and your skills, you toot away gal, as loud as you like :)

Kari Hultman said...

Thank for the support, guys.

Chuck, I'd probably look close to the same in photos if my weight didn't fluctuate so much. heh.

David, the PR person for the historical society sent out press releases to the media, so two showed up—the local newspaper and one of the TV stations. I never saw the video clip aired on TV. I figured they probably took a look at it back at the studio and decided to run the footage of grass growing instead.
