Hahahaha! I actually wrote this early early early this morning, got busy, and then totally forgot to post it until now. Hey, all! This week I am 103% HaldeCrate! In ceramics, I bisque fired the kiln Sunday, Shop Elf came out and helped me glaze Monday and we were able to fill the kiln, Tuesday I fired it again, and in a couple of hours it will have cooled enough that I can open the kiln and get all of the remaining finished HaldeCrate ceramics out. In soap, I finished the custom order I was working on, and I finished...

This week I just about have a permanent finger-swipe of clay on the upper outside right part of my glasses… I take them off to work on detail work - I’m nearsighted so my glasses are better for things more than about six feet away from me - but then every time I need to walk across the room I have to put them back on, and I’m usually elbow-deep in clay at the time. Also I’ll forget and scratch my face or something and then go to the post office looking like a crazy lady. Haha! Anyway. In ceramics,...

It’s been a busy week, y’all, and arguably not as productive as I would like, but… sometimes you get the week you need, not the week you want. In ceramics I’m busy slabrolling the snack trays for the upcoming HaldeCrate, and I need to get on the mugs. I’m also painting, in between steps of the slabrolling process, which means I’m getting the best of both worlds this week and having entirely too much fun. In soap there’s not a whole lot going on. I’m working on a large custom order for someone, but not really working on any restocks...

Honestly this week mostly what I feel I've worked on is ... getting ready for work. I've staged a lot of things (bisque I want to get glazed and fired over the next month)... I've planned a lot of things (slab-rolled pieces I need to get made over the next month, and bisque fired)... I've wrapped some soap and thought about where soap is and how it's doing... I've sorted through all the One Hit Wonders and have at least six weeks worth of piles... and by the end of the week I really need to get started on my...

Hey, all! How are you doing this week? How's your week going? I'm mostly about ceramics this week.... painting, glazing, slab-rolling, and planning and plotting. Not too much I can really talk about that's coming up, but... soon! Soooooon! In soap, I have some that needs to be wrapped, as soon as I have a minute. And I'm working on that soap for the Fiber-In, as well. In yarn, I'm working on dyeing the last of the One Hit Wonders that I'll be bringing to Fiber-In, and I'm about to release a new colorway in another week or so. In...
