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...

I took yesterday off to go into the Big City and run errands, see friends... so I'm a little convinced that today must be Monday, haha. But it's not! It's Wednesday! I sort of feel like it's one of those weeks before a big week... where I'm working on a lot but nothing is overly photographable, and I'm having fun but there's not much to talk about. As if I'm getting ready for things, doing prep work, revving up the creative engines. In ceramics, I'm making new greenware in prep for the Florida Fiber-In, and glazing recently fired bisque. I'm...

Oi, what a week, y'all! In ceramics, I'm talking about all the new things I've released this week (honeycomb and skull ceramics, and the August Mug of the Month) and I'm working on making new ones (and already making restocks! Thanks, y'all!). In soap, I'm making a list of soap I'm going to make for the Florida Fiber-In. I'm going to do a special base for this (if it's received well, I'll make it again for GLAM in December). It's a "triple butter" base... Shea butter, mango butter, and cocoa butter. It should have a really good lather and feel...

It's Wednesday again already? How does that happen? CALENDARS. More confusing than magnets. How do they work?! ANYWAY. Here's a little about what I'm up to this week... Most of my energy is going to ceramics this week; I'm obsessed with handbuilding again, making some fun things to bring to the Florida Fiber-In. And I'm getting ready to release a whole bunch of new things next week... honeycomb and skull ceramics! In soap, not much is going on right now. I did just place a large base order; goat's milk and oatmeal, and also a third base that I'm going...

This week is a curious mix of "all of the things" and "none of the things" - I spent both Monday and Tuesday in Gainesville, running errands and catching up with friends. For some reason today feels like a weekend day, which makes ZERO sense. Mostly this week I am about ceramics and yarn. I'm playing with bee mug designs, none of which (out of three) I am 100% happy with. I like little bits of all three but nothing is really saying to me I AM THE ONE. I am, however, over the moon with my incense burners! Must...
