  1. LOL Jamie Jones, thats hilarious yet oddly hideous at the same time. Next contest I will wait to the very last moment to post my entry also. 🙂

    • Haha. Thanks deb. Honestly I got really excited when I saw a dead fish. I had a frog too-it was going to ride a fish sleigh!..but it fell apart when I tried to dry it 🙁 I only waited till the end to submit because I didn’t want to give away the idea of using that medium. I don’t recommend this process of drying to anyone though…even my driveway smells like fish. Still.

      • Jamie, This is awesome!!! Thanks for waiting till the end I probably would have tried it… probably still will someday sounds like fun…:)

  2. Huge thanks goes to Dal for all his help. My ornament was finished on Christmas Day after I got through with all the wrapping, cleaning and cooking so it was a race to the finish line. Bless your heart Dal for all you do for this website as it can’t be an easy task. You play a big part of helping keep the Thrill of the Chase exciting. Job well done, sir.

  3. I just wanted to thank Dal and Mr. Fenn for this awesome contest, kinda unreal I have a nice arrowhead from Mr.Fenn’s collection sitting before me…you guys are awesome for being so thoughtful, my eight yr old loves his piece of mammoth tusk too! Thanks again!!
