Let’s see… when last we left our Intrepid Heroine, she was about to get her first Covid vaccine… no, wait, that was two weeks ago. What was last week? Oh! Right! When last we left our Intrepid Heroine, she was about to take a few days off for a family funeral. Funerals in the Plague Years are weird, yo. This was actually someone who passed away a little over a year ago, but we’d been holding off on having the funeral until it was safe to travel. Now the people who were traveling are all vaccinated, so we went ahead...

It’s Wednesday, and I was planning on having a productive week, but, hahaha! Joke is on me! It started off productive, but is coming to a screeching halt when I shut things down at the end of the day today - I’ve got family coming into town and need to take a few days off. I’ll be around for email and questions, and I’ll try to mail out packages but they might not get out until Monday, April 5th (just an FYI). But I have gotten some good work done, started, and at a good pausing place to pick it...

Good morning, and happy Wednesday! Thank goodness I don’t have to raise my arm to type… yesterday, after my vaccine, I felt well enough that I was like, “oh, tomorrow I can dye a little yarn and do some slabrolling - my arm hardly hurts, so heavy lifting and wedging will be fine!” HAHAHAHAHAHA. Yesterday, it just sort of felt like I’d hit my arm on a doorframe… this morning, it feels like a horse kicked me. It’s definitely going to be an “arm at my side and eat a lot of Tylenol” kind of day! In ceramics, I’m glad...

It’s Wednesday again! And again, there is both a whole lot and absolutely nothing going on at HaldeCraft this week.   In ceramics, I’m working on custom orders, I’m working on a big decal item update, and I’m working on a couple of hair-brained ideas I couldn’t stop myself from starting. In soap, next week I should be able to start making restocks! Hurray! I know I have some goat’s milk soap that needs to be replaced, and a couple of oatmeal ones as well. I can’t wait to start working on them, that will feel so… back to normal....

It’s Wednesday again, and you know what that means! An exhausting list of what I’m working on! Just kidding - I’m not working on too much this week because I’m busy moving office furniture around. In ceramics, I’m working on some custom orders, and getting some glazing done in prep for a decal firing soon. In soap, part of my rearranging is to give me a dedicated spot for soap, so I won’t have to switch out yarn and soap stuff any more (don’t ask me where I’ll pot plants, I haven’t really gotten that far yet). In yarn, kind...
