I just shipped out a new batch of little vases to the NC Museum of Art store, then I was looking through the last issue of The Independent (that's the free art news paper for the Raleigh-Durham area). And what to my wondering eyes should appear?
But a picture and add for them in the gift giving guide..... (and eight tiny reindeer) hehehe!!!!!

Im still getting ready for the sale on this saturday December 4th, I know I should be further ahead buy now but you know how life gets in the way?
I had a Sick little boy to attend to today Judson stayed home sick, strep throat again. He had it a few weeks ago and then I think caught it again at daycare.
So now I'm way behind and Just a few days ago I was ahead? So tomorrow is going to be one of those better get it done days! One last load of tiles to fire before Saturday I need to finish glazing them all load the kiln and have it started buy the afternoon...... This all was on the schedule for today but there was no way it was happening with the sick little boy home today. It's a good thing he's cute!
On the bright side I think I can get everything finished but the tiles may be a little warm unloading them late friday evening. I always seem to get behind before an event usually its for reasons like I want to make a few more pots a different shape or style then last time. Or Im in the groove on glazing and decorating that I am so enjoying where its all going letting the creativity flow with new Ideas popping in my head, I want to take the time to see them and let them flow freely seeing where it all leads. So Im spending more and more time on each piece and I get behind working late tired but so, so happy. :-)
This time its Just a little bit of life getting in the way but Im so enjoying that too!

I wanted to mention that my fellow potter and all around great guy Ronan Kyle Peterson is having his 5th Annual Open Studio and Holiday Sale. He's got a great studio in Chapel Hill its definitely worth checking out. His work is very unique and distinctive with an individual style all his own. Stroll on over to his blog and check it out. Its this weekend too! So much going on in the pottery world this weekend. Such a fun time of the year!
