Mom and I would never be able to have the shop without the support of our family. In particular, Dad really makes all of this possible. He is a computer scientist and works at all sorts of technical things all day, often pulling long nights, to support the family and the opening of the shop. Plus, when there is a problem down here like siding that has been blown off by super strong wind or heavy duty yard work, making dressing rooms, he is definitely the one to whom we turn.
However, in one way the shop is giving back to Dad. He is getting his craft on again. It has been awhile since he has been able to build anything but he has actually been busy down in his workshop. We are really proud to be able to say that he has been making some adorable twiggy reindeer for our shop. He is hoping to start making some furniture like shelves and the like for the shop at some point. Don't you think that he did a great job with these?
And here are the "babies":
