Wonderland was quite Wonderious



In case all you guys don't frequently visit the blog Design For Mankind here is a little visual treat for you thanks to them. Its by PALOMA CROUSILLAT.

Crafty Wonderland was a super success and I met so many amazing sweet people. I was a little nervous the night before so I didn't sleep more than a few winks. So though the whole event I was like a functioning zombie, but I still had a great time. I did forget to put someone's magnet in their bag and if its you please email or comment to me and I will mail it to you! So sorry to whom ever it was, I hate it when that happens so I was mortified I did it to someone else.

So now I’m going to put my home back together and begin with the next round of work for my grad school portfolio. Yes I already have some images but its all bowls and cups, so I need some more alluring pieces like vases and jars, etc. I'll update you all when I have my portfolio images posted on my flickr, figured I should let everyone see what I have been slaving away at in the studio. Oh yeah, I will be putting my etsy back up in a matter of weeks, I just had too much on my plate to be a good etsy seller. But do check in after 3 weeks or so it should be up and running again by that time. Happy Holidays.

Crafty Wonderland!


This Sunday December 13th, I will be selling my ceramics at the Super Colossal Holiday Sale. Its going to be an amazing event with over 200 super talented artists and crafters, goodie bags for the first 200 visitors and DIY tables for adults and children to sit down and get crafty.
This will be my last ceramics sale of the season. Sorry no studio sale this year, too many things have come up so I hope you can make it to this event. I have lots of new work fresh from the kiln and my booth buddy Drea will have some new embroidery.

So besides the craft sale I am also in the mists of applying for graduate school. It’s a stressful process and I cannot wait until I have sent them off with my fingers crossed. I’m trying not to be too heart bent on getting excepted in case I don’t, but after the process you go though and all the money you send with each application, its easily comparable to the experience of a date “for a guy”. Ether it’s going to be a great pay off with a future relationship or a total disappointment leaving an emotional mark and a hole in your wallet.

After this year is over I already have dreams of what I am going to do, no nothing glamorous but truly necessary. I’m going to seriously CLEAN MY HOUSE. It’s amazing how things get prioritized and cleaning the home starts to loose its place on the ladder of importance with approaching deadlines and piles work. But while I drive to work I daydream of what I will organize and clean first and also the most ingenuitive way to do it. Thus far my most prized idea is buying a round brush attachment for the power dill, making a paste out of baking soda and cleaning out my tub. I really think this is a brilliant idea; it’s like a super dooper eclectic toothbrush but for the bathtub and tile. Kyle thinks I’m crazy for needing to use a drill to scrub the tub but I know if this works, I’ll be a genius. No need to be turned off by my lack of modesty, sometimes you just have to marvel at your own genius. So just you wait till January when I tell you all how amazing it works and I might even get a photo of me, the power dill, and our purple tub.

So Happy Holidays everyone and I’ll be posting next year.
