Personal Statement

My wife Julie and I started our craft career making mediation toys made from wire and gemstones. Then one day, when left alone with a chainsaw and some wood at my feet one tea break, my artistic talents came to life. The urge to play came over me and before long I had carved a wooden mushroom and was amazed. I took it home to my wife. They come in odd numbers she cried, "I need two more if you make me another three I could have a fairy ring" This was a good start! There was no stopping me and by the end of the week we had wooden mushroom tables and seats. The garden was transformed. Friends came, saw and wanted them, so that was the start of a beautiful future The Magic of Mushrooms had begun.
