Hello December!

December!  Really?  I'm not ready for you.  Way too much to do.  Haven't made a single Christmas purchase yet.  Have no idea what I'm going to be purchasing.  I'm getting stressed and it's only December 4th.  Not good.  I'm meeting my friend at the mall at noon for lunch and some shopping today - hope I can find some sales.  We'll see.
As for clay...I've been carving carving carving....
and my kiln has been running almost every day!  I really love this glaze!
 I think I need to re-carve this one. 
And I thought I was going to like this reindeer - kinda folk arty and all that, but Kellie said it looks like a diaper so now I'm not so sure about it.  What do you think?
 and this glaze I wasn't sure I was going to like but I made some pieces in it anyway....
and I've gotta say - I really love it on these link things...
speaking of link things, I've been making a lot of them recently...

and this house is for sale near me for commercial use... 
It was a ceramic doll studio and then it was a ceramic art studio.  Ryan actually had his fifth birthday party there years ago.  Anyway, I've been looking for a studio space near my home because, quite frankly, I need to get the hell outta here!  I need more space!  I'm squeezed into a tiny space and I'm starting to fall over myself!  I also need a big kiln and I don't have room for that at my house.  Plus, there are way too many distractions here.  The phone, the kids coming and going, the computer, and the regular day to day stuff of the house.  So, I can't afford to buy it right now, and I can't afford the rent on the entire building, but my real estate agent is trying to work out a deal where I can rent part of the building.  It would be great since it is all set up for kilns already!  Crossing my fingers that he calls me this week with good news.

  1. That would be so awesome if you can get a space inside that building!
