Etsy's New Guidelines...

With Etsy's new guidelines now allowing shops to outsource their production it's made me reconsider staying with Etsy.  As a result I am opening a shop on Zibbet  Its a site that has only truly handmade items.  Check it out and pass the word.

I am very excited to say that my kiln if 'finally' set up (in my bedroom)!  I'm going to start it up right after posting this :D

Hummm... Click...  There it goes!!!

We moved here in May.  It's been seven months since I've fired a load, YIKES!  I have to say that we have had other things take priority due to renovating.  I guess that having safe electrical or a roof that doesn't leak or no mold really is more important.  We had to tear out our kitchen due to mold.  Not expecting that.  That's a whole other post for sure.  We replaced and repaired the roof, tore off the back porch and had to gut the kitchen right down to the crawl space.  Man, it was gross and a bit disheartening.

Not done yet but at least the floor is down.  Have you ever lived without a kitchen for six months?  Thank goodness for the microwave and electric frying pan.

Happy to be back in the studio (it's in my living room) making pots again!

Hummm.... Click....  I love that sound!

It amazes me how often I think of pottery.  I go to sleep at night drifting off to pictures in my mind of furture pots and glaze possibilities.  Sometimes I'll be struck by an idea and jump up to go draw it in my sketch pad.  Try it some night as you are drifting off to sleep and be sure to share your ideas in the comments.

Shaving Mugs vs online marketing

 I'd much rather be making my shaving mugs.  Glazing pottery... packing etsy orders... Firing the kiln...anything in the pottery studio would be a relief.

My brain is hurting because I'm learning about search engine optimization. 
I'm going to make some molds, yeah!
