Well I HAD a studio full of work for about 2 whole days. That's almost a record. I sent 54 pieces of work today... Most of it is on it's way to Portland, OR. Then a few other pieces to random spots throughout the country. I've also had a big spike in International sales the past few weeks...wonder why...
Anyway, I spent the past 3 days hanging out with an old friend. Hiking and walking and hiking and walking and taking pictures and watching movies and walking some more... After she left I spent the rest of the day today taking photos and doing some computer work...(and watching ¡Three Amigos!)
I've updated my Etsy shop with these 2 new vases. They are on sale (with the rest of my vases) 25% OFF until April 30th. ((Mother's Day is coming fast!)) ((Free gift wrapping. Just let me know in the note to seller box when you check out.))
Be on the lookout for some surprises in my shop in the next few days. I got a few fun new pieces into this last kiln load...
*OH! And I was featured on a lovely blog the other day. Check it out right here. Thanks to Andrea at CRE8IVE JUICE. And be sure to check out here work at small muse.

I've been the worst blogger ever. It's really not my fault. The husband has been on spring break and that makes it damn near impossible to get any work done. I have managed to get work made in the studio, but any extra computer work has been really hard to fit in.
The first few days he was off he was up in Buffalo for a teacher's union conference. And my few days alone with Dudley were very productive and lots of fun.
This cupcake sugar shaker is just one of the cutest things ever. I was going through old pictures and found these shakers I made over 2 years ago. I thought they kind of looked like cupcakes, so I just went a step further and made them REALLY look like cupcakes. S & P shakers didn't seem quite right, but sugar or cinnamon and sugar seems just perfect.
I've also been cranking out the mugs and other smaller items so I can restock a few of my shops and also start to stock pile for my 1 summer show and then for the fall. Of course, I've still been working on the bigger stuff...
This guy is REALLY fat. I think I'm going to tuck him away for my show at the end of May.
Other than work, we rearranged the ENTIRE living room area. It's a big open space and SO hard to work with. We've been wanting to get a new TV and knew we were getting something big and we'd have to rearrange the whole damn room. I know, why a new TV when you don't have cable or anything? Well, that doesn't mean we don't love movies. And we do LOVE movies. We decided on an LED HDTV...uses less power and has no mercury (2 really great things) and the picture is fan-freakin-tastic. It's like looking through a window and watching everything happening in real life. AMAZING. Well worth the extra cash. We really aren't into the whole consumerism thing...but I can't praise this TV enough.
Well, enough about that. I have a huge amount of work on the shelves waiting to be fired. I really want to pack this kiln solid. I've been having a great time with the standing and throwing and my hip/back issues have been lessening. One more batch of work to carve and that's it. I'm aiming for a Thursday bisque. Then it's going to be glazing, glazing, glazing...
