Yes, I am all set for the snow stick contest! You can enter by guessing the date and morning or afternoon that the snow will be totally gone from the snow stick.
There are 17 1/2 inches of snow at the snow stick. When will it melt? Here are previous melt dates.

As you can see we have about a six week window. So guess away…guess the date and morning or evening.
The winners..there might be more than one will get a bark carving.
These are my last three creations, none of mine ever look alike, they are all one of a kind. These three are Linda in Colorado Johnson’s Cottonwood bark. It is a lighter bark than we have here in Minnesota. It carves beautifully!
They have joined the rest of my carvings in an old shoe box awaiting homes. I give some away, and occasionally I sell a few. They can sit on shelves or they can be fitted with an eyehook for a ribbon and become a Christmas ornament.
These are not huge carvings…the pen is for a reference. I like carving them as they fit comfortably in my arthritic hands.
I have a few more in the works…so you never can tell which carving you might get. I carve at least one afternoon a week. Sometimes more…Minnesota winters…ya you betcha nothing better than an afternoon spent with sharp knives.
This is one of my favorite bark carvings.
I will probably keep this one for myself as it has a very fragile back…bark is what it is and I like the tree that the bark told me was there.
Guess away. I will add the guesses to the bottom of this post. Guessing closes Sunday night March 9 at 9PM. Those of you that are bashful can email me with your guess, my email can be found by clicking on the yellow flower on the left sidebar.
