I'm pretty sure there aren't a lot of people out there thinking, "I always wanted to be an ice sculptor." I mean, they don't offer it as an option for career day at school and it isn't a major in college so how does anyone decide this is their occupation of choice? Well, let me tell you, it wasn't exactly what I thought I was going to do with my life.

I heard this quote about four months ago when I was listening to NPR and since then it has kind of stuck with me.

Since starting this business I knew that it was going to be a lot of work, but I must admit that in the back of my head I secretly hoped that after the site was launched and my first sculpture was up that I would be “there”.

There are 3 months left in 2012 and for me things are getting started.
