It's a Beautiful Time of Year

Aahh, Spring!  The fresh air, sunshine, blooming flowers, baby animals...I love it.  My favorite time of year.  Fortunately in California we get to experience it a bit earlier than other states. 

Wow, have things changed for me.  I'm now back to a secular job and am fortunate enough to work for a good company with great bosses.  I would love to be able to do my clay full time but....well, it's the whole "starving artist" scenario.  Because of this change I most likely won't be at the Carlsbad Fair in  May after all but I am hoping to be at the one in November.  You can, however, still view and purchase from my website.  Unfortunately I spent hours updating my website today and when I went to publish, the host system crashed.  For now it still looks neglected (and has been) but I sent out a help ticket and hopefully will be able to get that issue taken care of.

I do have the privilege of making flowers for my sweet friend's wedding, the talented Amanda Day - sculpturist from Australia.  I'm so happy to be able to do this for her but I won't be updating my blog with pictures as she's given me carte blanch creative license and I want her to be surprised.  But...not doing the fair gives me more time for working on that and of course, I'll be continuing to make other items.  I do have another wine bottle to show you and will be listing that and a couple of other things shortly.  Meanwhile, enjoy the pretty Springtime!

I'm a Bit Behind...

Hi Everybody,

I know, I know. I haven't posted for awhile. I've been incredibly busy making things for the upcoming Carlsbad Fair.  Not only that but I've been busy looking for a secular employment.  That's really gonna cut into my clay time!  But we've grown accustomed to the good things in life - like toilet paper and food and it seems money is the only way to own such luxuries. 

I do have something to say about commenting on one's blog.  This is the second time someone has left a messsage in Japanese that is of sexual content.  Apparently there's no way to block someone from accessing your account which is really too bad.  I don't follow this person's blog (after all I don't speak Japanese) nor do I know this person.  It's really frustrating to me that people think it's ok to leave their trash on random blogs.  Anybody else have this problem?  I do know that a friend of mine (sculpture artists, Amanda Day) received a whole boatload of spam in her blog.  I think that Blogger should create a way we can block this type of thing.  Facebook has it.  If people are going to stoop so low as to post unprovoked smut then we need to have a way to fight back.  Grrr...maybe we should bombard Google with emails about this.

At any rate, I'll step off the soapbox now. Here's a peek at some of the newer things I've been working on:

In case you're wondering about the bottle, it's an empty wine bottle that I decorated.  My hubby actually came up with that idea and I think it's a good for wine lovers.  Maybe even as a keepsake for a bottle used at a wedding or special occasion.  I'll be using other bottles as well.....have you strolled down the liqour aisle lately?  Some of those bottles are gorgeous!

Crafting has always been a passion for me. I have yet to stick with any particular medium, as I love to switch it out and try new things. This blog is sort of a testament to that fact. Hope you enjoy...
