First Snow!

Last night brought our first snow of the season! It was light, but beautiful. Snow is the perfect excuse to keep a roaring fire going all day long and to sip hot cocoa with the kids while we make pots.

We've been busy getting ready for the holiday season. We have been busy, but our lists have kept us from getting too far off track. I keep a list of custom requests taped to my throwing mirror. I keep a grocery list by the coffee pot. I keep a To Do list taped the the cabinets about the coffee pot. Do you see where I spend my day? I'm either at the wheel, or at the coffee pot. But first, hot cocoa by the fire with the kiddos!

Craptastic Blogger

I have been a craptastic blogger. I got going well for a while, then I tripped and fell into my busy life again. I intended to write daily. I suppose weekly would have been pretty good, but monthly? Nope.

Let's see.... well, we have really gotten into stamped work. We have been making loads of stamped platters and plates and they sell as fast as we can make them. We are sill trying to make each one unique, but if this keeps up, we'll have to make some repeats.

We have also been making quite a few soap dishes. We are still playing with the design. We love the two piece concept, but we are playing with developing a squared version. It may never come to be officially, but the prototypes are being worked on.
