Yesterday a project (setting up a new tortoise enclosure for the boys, who have outgrown their terrarium) that I thought would take two hours took eight, and I have a dentist appointment tomorrow and have to take That Poor Man to get his wisdom teeth out Friday, so my feeling of accomplishment is less this week than I'd like it to be. But I do have some things in the works! Ceramics are where most of my creative energies are focused this week. Doing more slab/handbuilding, and firing it as soon as it dries, glazing, planning, getting some new things...

Whew, y'all, what a week! I woke up this morning and my first thought was "I'm so glad it's Saturday, I can sleep a little late" followed immediately by "OH WAIT." Hahaha. It's a good week, don't get me wrong - but I'm getting so much done it's confusing me that it's only Wednesday. In ceramics, so many fun things! A couple of good restock and new bisque firings (new bisque is being glazed now and so expect some fun things in the next few weeks)... working on the HaldeCrate, the magnet portion of which has also inspired me to...

Shop Elf came out to the studio yesterday (it usually comes on Thursdays) so I'm a little convinced today is Friday... but it's not! It's Wednesday! And that means we talk about What's In Progress. WiP Wednesday started off as a weekly conversation prompt over in my Ravelry group. I hear Ravelry has been in the news lately? Hahaha. ANYWAY.

Everyone is so caring, so generous with their time...

So many slab-rolled ceramics this week! It's messy and fun in the studio these days. So messy. AND SO FUN! In ceramics, I'm having so much fun! Er, I mean, I'm working so hard! Haha! I've gotten a few new texture rolling pins and I just can't stop myself from playing with them - at the same time, I remembered about that honeycomb texture mat I have, and how I made a couple of small dishes that sold right out at GLAM... so I should make more, right?! And I'm getting a lot of glazing done - I should be...

Good morning! How has your week been so far? I'm sitting here with fingers itching to type (and hopefully not misspell everything, since I'm also only halfway into my first cup of coffee as I write this) and a creative fire under me that wonders how early is too early to get over to my studio? Asking for a friend, haha! Mostly what's going on this week is ceramics. I have some llama planters and some Buddha planters I want to get painted and glazed, I have some things in the kiln I can't wait to fire (I mean, literally,...
