  • Donna Thomas at Mt. Home Show

    Donna Thomas has been unable to post on the Forum. She can read; but cannot post.

    Last weekend I visited with her at the Mt. Home, Arkansas Woodcarving Show. She won a number of ribbons including several blue. I told her I was looking forward to seeing her post on WCI. Since she cannot post, I offered to do so for her. She is an excellent carver and all of us miss not being able to see her work. I am offering to post for and hope those of you who have friends who can not post will put forth the same offer to them.


    Donna and I have been carving friends for a number of years. We first met on WCI. She has been more fortunate in that she has been able to meet in person far more or her Forum friends than have I. She advised me in an email with the photos, that she misses the friendship and camaraderie of what WCI used to be.

    Here are her pics including a selfie of us together.

    I\'m sorry I couldn\'t make it to the show...would have been good to see you and Donna again. I saw where Donna had won several blue ribbons and they are well deserved! Her work is beautiful.

              Mike, you were missed at the show. I was looking forward to seeing your art again.

              Donna... good to see you again and congrats on your awards. Looking forward to Guge\'s class next year.

                I missed this when it was first posted. Glad I caught up, a jolly looking couple and some fine carvings.

                  I will make sure that Donna is aware of the comments. I think she can read on WCI but not post. Sounds like some kind of log in fiasco.

                    WOW! Words cannot describe how magnificent her carvings are! They can\'t get any more realistic! Would have loved to see them in person!

                      I second Bob. Very realistic. Thank for sharing Donna with us.

                        Since Donna is unable to post, I offered to post everything for her. I received the following email:

                        I really miss the forum friends although some have reconnected through Facebook.

                        Thanks for the kind words. I can read postings but have not been able to post since the original message board went down. I miss the help we could get by posting questions here--and I miss the many friends I made here--some of which I reconnected with through Facebook after I retired. Happy carving!

                            Wow Donna, you have been busy! Beautiful work. Like you I have trouble posting, nothing seems to work like it use to, forum or myself! LOL Happy to see you and that Ol\' Coonass got together, great picture.

                              Squarebriggs, luckily I have a beard and do not have to look in the mirror each morning. The selfie Donna did of us shows her with some old guy. **** that is me.

                              Seriously, we did have a great, if too short, visit. She has visited us here in Whooping Hollow and I am attempting to get her back for some fun carving and, oh yeah, Cajun Cooking.

                              Mike I missed seeing you at Mt. Home. It is difficult to keep up with what folks are carving now. Will you visit the NW Arkansas show in September? I have not been in a couple of years; but, do plan on making it over there this year.
