Beacause I Loved "Pitch Perfect," That's Why

No, it's not Hallowe'en related. Sorry. ;)

A New Fan

Last year, while I was seling my stuff at Apple Hill, a couple of ladies came in to ooh and aah over my Raku jacks. They each bought one, and I was delighted my jacks were going home with such nice folks. One of them signed up on my mailing list and promised to get in touch with me this year.

Later on, she told me about her friend's son's reactions to the jacks. He loved them from the first moment he saw them, and she promised him he'd get one for his birthday this year.
 That smile makes all the 18-hour days worth it.

I love being a potter!

Busy Little Bee!

Ornaments ready for tags!
I've been bad about posting because there's plain old been a lot on my plate this last couple of months. Hallowe'en, Josey dying, work drama, a nutty customer leaving a nutty review on my Etsy page, getting ready for the upcoming Christmas Arts and Crafts Fair in Folsom--it all just sucks up time and energy. Throw in an upcoming foot surgery, and I am stressed! The blog has most definitely taken a back seat lately!
Yes, that's my foot. The result of ice skating, too-tight shoes as a kid, and too many years of wearing heels. They're going to go in, take out a wedge of bone, cut tendons and ligaments, stick in a pin and then put it back together. Six weeks later, the pin comes out. Sounds awesome, huh?

Oh, and ditto this surgery for the other foot, which will get done robably late next year. Do I know how to have fun, or what?


Well, back to glazing some Christmas plates I've been making!

Making Christmas

Busy as a little bee, making Christmas for the Folsom Christmas Arts and Crafts Fair! I've never made purely Christmas-y stuff before, but it seems to be coming along well.

Of course, a little Hallowe'en creeps in from time to time...

Getting Ready...

For the Other Holiday, as the Folsom Christmas Craft Fair approaches. I was looking for some Kramups inspiration and found this little gem on M Cubed.
Delightfully creepy, just in time for a Merry Creepmas!

Haunt Pics

Here are a few teasers!
 It's funny. This year I felt like a slacker because there was no music, or graveyard, or most of the things I do for the haunt. Even so, I got a lot of compliments from folks!

Oh, and Froggys Fog's Cryofreeze worked perfectly when run through my chiller. Fantastic fog!
