One more day.

So much has happened since my last post I don't even know where to begin. There was glazing madness and then firing the kiln during an ice storm...no power problems, thank goodness. Packing and loading for Craftacular...which ended up being quite spectacular. I met lots of fellow Esty folk, clay people and others. And I met lots of folks saying that they had "hearted" (my new favorite verb) my things on Etsy or recognized my work and even 2 people that had bought things from me on Etsy! That was fun. We stayed at my sister-in-law's apartment on Saturday night, slept VERY little, woke up and shot right to the Metropolitan Pavilion. We got a sweet parking spot right out front and parked for free! We finally got home around 11pm after picking up Dudley at our friends house. Monday and Tuesday were spent posting left over work like a madwoman and packing up TONS of boxes. I had to bring them straight to the post office because there were just too many to leave for the mailman. I had to go again today, 10 boxes and 5 of them were BIG boxes. I also managed to work a little in the studio today. I still had a few more things I wanted to make for presents. I'm planning on firing a bisque on Friday. We are supposed to get hit with a bunch of snow on Friday. We had some late last night, into the morning. Jon had a 2-hour delay. It doesn't look like school's going to happen Friday. Then he's off until after New Years. A nice long break. I'm hoping I will have the discipline to take a break too. After I glaze this last load of work over the weekend, I'm planning on taking a break until after the new year. I think I deserve it!!
Well, the last day to purchase work in time for the holidays is tomorrow. Friday was to be my last day for shipping but I may not be able to leave the house until Saturday. If you still need something, buy it tonight or tomorrow before 1pm so I can get it shipped out tomorrow!!

Your table rocks! That white tree is sooooo perfect for your ornaments. And of course you picked the perfect sweater to camouflage with your pots. All you did this year is reason to celebrate soon!

I'm so glad the show went well. Your work looks so great all in one place. I'm feeling that exhaustion you have, it's been a really busy season.
