The Village Carpenter is Retiring...

It would appear that The Village Carpenter is no longer posting. Kari has decided to hang up her keyboard and go off in other pursuits. While I will miss her, I respect and understand her decision to give it up. Constantly sharing yourself on a blog isn't the easiest thing to do, and in fact, it can be a royal pain in the ass sometimes.

In truth, Kari was the driving force that got me into the blogging business. She is so damned talented, she should be ashamed of herself. I probably learned more from her postings than I ever learned from all the other blogs combined.

What I loved about Kari's posts is her lack of pretension. If you did a search through all her postings I would bet the back forty that you would never find the word "perfect" used that related to herself or her work. You and I might of thought the results of her skills were perfect, and maybe at times even Kari thought so too, but she is classy enough to never even hint she felt that way. She did what she did to the best of her abilities and then put it out there for the world to see.

All the best to you, Kari, in your future endeavours. You will be missed.




  1. Mitchell, thank you so much for the nice write-up and for understanding. It will be an adjustment to give up blogging, but it's the right decision for me at this time. Warmest wishes. ~Kari
