s t u d i o facelift

my wall of cubbies

Last week I was telling my husband that I needed a wall of shelves for all my pottery. My art room was getting cluttered with bookshelves that didn't match, my old over sized drafting table that collected everything that didn't have it's own home, and unmatching shelves on any wall space I could find. As soon as I mentioned this, he was busy figuring out how to make what I had envisioned and off to work he went. Two days later I had exactly what I had asked for! I now have 64 cubbie holes for books and pottery! AND he also made me an 8' workbench! Now my studio is organized and feels so much bigger than it was before. All we have left to do now is the floors, but that will be another project for another day! Until then, I will be busy painting and glazing in my up scaled studio!

Thank you SOOO much sweetie!
You are the BEST!

deep thoughts

since Friday my heart has been heavy with sadness for those innocent souls that have been taken so tragically. i find myself trying to keep busy with last minute orders, getting Christmas cards out, and then i stop...i start praying in hopes it will comfort those in this holiday season, i am praying for comfort and peace throughout the world and for YOU.  

God Bless

bisqued ornaments
Yesterday was spent in the studio throwing. I don't know if you ever have off days, but yesterday was definitely an OFF day for me. It took me most of the morning to get one simple piece made. I decided I needed a break, so I took the dogs outside to play a bit and had some lunch. After a much needed breather I went back to the studio and made nine new pieces. Now the studio shelves are filled with new work waiting for their turn in the kiln.

Hoping for an ON day tomorrow!
