I am also honored to be a featured artist on the blog Siobhan's Dream. Please visit the blog as well as the Etsy shop of Siobhan's mom, Julie, who makes just gorgeous silver jewelry. Here's one of my favorite items from her shop, Sirenetta Designs.
Finally, I got a gift from AntB in today's mail! I entered a giveaway in her blog a few days ago and actually won a fantastic chalice ornament (I'm not used to actually winning stuff!). I love it! Please visit Ant's etsy shop too and check out her wonderful work or keep up to date with the antics of Grandpa and Grandma.

My main New Year's resolution is to spend more time in the studio. I have a tendency to work in spurts and then goof off. I suppose I'm "recharging" during those goffing off periods, but I've come to the conclusion that I need to establish a pattern of working every day.
I have been helping my husband pack up his parent's house to sell and I have come across a lot of doillies and old lace. Unfortunately, it's been packed away for so many years (we think it was his grandmother who made it!) that it's not looking very good. However, I think I can use it in the studio to imprint patterns in the clay. So stay tuned! We'll see what I can come up with in the days ahead!
