Mugs, mugs, and more mugs....

I'm taking a little break from throwing. I've been commissioned to make 50 mugs for a wedding in August. In between studying, taking tests, gardening and taking a little trail ride now and then, I've been keeping busy at the wheel. =)

Last night I received another commission for a new painting. Also needed in August. Doesn't look like I'll be getting much of a break between semesters. That's okay though. Work isn't work if you enjoy what your doing!

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July everyone!

I can't believe it's that time of year already. I've been having a great summer. David and I have been riding at least three times a week despite the tests I've had to take.

It has been raining almost daily. My garden is growing and so are the wildflowers. They're gorgeous! We went for a hike on the Rainbow Trail the other day and found some of the most beautiful colors.
Have a safe and happy 4th!
