Happy New Year!

As 2009 draws to an end, I'd like to thank the many many people who have given me their support and helped make this year a successful one. The wonderful friends who so generously share their advice and expertise, as well as lend an ear when one is needed. The great customers who appreciate my work and keep me busy year-round. My family members who are my greatest fans. And all those who are quick with a comment or good wishes.

To all, my heartfelt thanks and wishes for a bright, blessed and hopeful 2010!

A New Work Area

I don't have a large studio so finding a place to put all my inventory, to organize and pack pots to take to shows or to Manassas Clay or to ship Etsy purchases has always been a big problem for me. I was struggling with my boxes following the last of the shows when my husband peeked into my study and said "What you need are some shelves" and off he went! Before I knew it, there he was, with the boards and the tools putting shelves up on the wall!

Now I can see what I have, I know where things are and I can easily find something that just sold on Etsy. Thanks Chris!!!

Here's a picture of the work in progress:

And here's the end result! My study seems huge now... The table is not all cluttered, making it easier to weigh and ship items that sell. And I have a perfect place for taking photos of my work.
