March Meet the Maker 2018: Days 6-10

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Continued from here....! March Meet the Maker Day 6: Workspace. Here's the inside of my studio; to the left of the frame there's a long shelf that holds more molds, drying greenware, and bisque waiting to be painted. Then I have three wheels (two Brents and a Pacifica), a pouring table, a rolling table with my slab roller, a table with glazes, a rolling table for glazing, a rolling table for wet work (slab building, putting handles on mugs, etc), a rolling table for clean work (wrapping soap, making stitch markers), and along the back there's my yarn winding equipment,...

March Meet the Maker 2018: Days 1-5

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

I missed it last year, but am 1003% on board for this year! Let's do March Meet the Maker! Weeks ago, I had every intention of doing @joannehawker's March Meet the Maker; I had so much fun doing it two years ago, missed out last year because of all that kidney stuff, and was really looking forward to this year... and then This Last Week happened. But things are looking better for all the people in my life I've been caring for, so here we go! Time for selfish me-time! Hey, hi! I'm Lorena, I'm a Maker. Primarily ceramics (my...

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

I have a question for anyone who's purchased and had something shipped in the last two weeks or so - and this is because I am honestly curious and this is not something I can see from the back end of my website - how many emails do you get from me about a purchase? It used to be that my website would email you when you purchased, about what you purchased. Then it would email you when I fulfilled and mailed the package, with tracking info. Then through an app I use, you'd get an email about two weeks...

HaldeCraft has a new look

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Hey, all! Just a quick note to say that if you notice that HaldeCraft looks a little different... you haven't gone mad! Yesterday, the site looked like this - And now it looks like this - Overall nothing has deeply changed, as far as products go (I did take the time to go through some things that folks haven't shown an interest in, and went ahead and took them off the site - they may appear marked down at shows in the future). Hopefully navigation may be a little easier when looking for categories. I've only put the most popular...

March Meet the Maker (days 21-31)

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

All of March was pretty busy, but it came to a head last week (hence no Wednesday and Friday blogging). But here's the last of the Instagram challenge that I was doing last month, and can I just say that I really, REALLY loved doing it! I enjoyed meeting so many like-minded Makers and getting a peek at what makes people work and how they do it. Now here's the rest of mine (I did skip one -- Day 27, Routine. Because my routine was so out of whack last week. How hilarious is that?! Day 21: Work Clothes For...
