Works-in-Progress Wednesday (03/13/19)

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

What's going on for y'all this week? How's your week shaping up? The time change is hitting all of us... just about every person I've talked to this week has mentioned not having enough sleep, enough coffee, enough motivation. We're all feeling it! In ceramics this week, I'm working on painting the April mug, and trying to get some restocks glazed. We're going away for a family event the last week of the month, and I'd like to get everything I need for the beginning of next month squared away before then! I'm also working on planning out the second...

Hey, y'all! How's it going for you this week? I've been buckling down and doing a ton of accounting data entry (wheeeeeeeeee!) but there are some more exciting things going on as well.... In ceramics, the March Mug of the Month sold out in record time - I love that y'all loved it and I have had inquiries but I have to be honest I do not see me making more of these. They were more of a challenge to paint than I thought they'd be and I don't know that I want to jump into making that as a...

What are y'all up to this week? Last week I did not have a good or productive week at all... this week things are looking better! In ceramics, I'm getting ready to start painting the March mug, the unicorn... I'm handbuilding some test pieces for the next HaldeCrate... Working on some things for a show I'm doing the first weekend of March (that will also be a new line in the shop after that)... In soap, I think I've gotten everything restocked, now, except for the sample sets. I need to make some more of those... In yarn, I really...

I can hardly remember what I thought on Monday that my week would be like... I know I had a plan, but... pff! Plans! We don't need no stinkin' plans! Hahahaha! Seriously, though, this week has gone a little off the rails - I knew Monday I was going to take the day off to spend the day with a friend I've known for 30 years - we lost a mutual, long-time friend last week, and it was a complete surprise and we're both a little gutted... so we wanted to get together and raise a glass. But then I...

And just like that, January is almost over! I don't know who decided THAT could be a thing. I still kind of feel like it's October of last year, haha. Sigh. It's not just me, either... a friend on Facebook yesterday mentioned she'd just gotten her Christmas tree taken down. I'm glad it's not just me, feeling time slipping past so quickly. Don't think I'm missing the irony of posting about what I'm working on when I start the post off saying how busy everyone around me feels.....! So then. On to what I'm doing this week....! In ceramics, I...
