I love this time of year, and love seeing all of everyone else’s lights and trees and yes, even inflatable decorations going up but I can’t seem to get into the mood to actually do any at our house for some reason.
Some of it may have to do with the fact that I scheduled a couple of markets on top of each other and am busy getting ready for them. To be fair, quite a few of the items in the works ARE decorations.
Some of it might have to do with the temperature. But I can’t use that for long as it’s getting back to feeling quite wintry today.
Whatever it is, I’m thankful we’ve been gifted a couple of items that are helping to give our house just a little bit more merry until we can get ourselves a little more into the holiday spirit!
LOVE + LITTLE STEPS
Two shows this weekend!
I spent the morning at The Art League helping (a little) to get it all ready for Artfête this weekend. Washing windows, hanging lights, eating broken candy canes, and setting up my own table. I’m excited to be part of the Holiday Ceramics Sale again! It’s such a fun weekend, and always nice to see others works displayed so lovingly. There are so many talented folks in the ceramics department here and it’s wonderful to see finished pieces that I’ve seen going through the working phases in the kiln room and finding out who made them!
I didn’t fret with my table as much this year – I only went through three completely different iterations of set up . . . and moved four pieces about twelve times after that! Ah, well. Little Steps! Next year, maybe. I was happy to pick up a few works I finished just in time for the last firing. Love. I’ll be at the party Friday night and then back again for my work shift on Sunday!

This fish. I’m in love.
I’ve been working on some new pieces and whenever I’m having a bit of an off day, I come back to my little (and not so little) fish. They are so fun to make – with funky fins and tails, expressive eyes and mouths . . .
This is my new favorite guy. He’ll be with me at the Lyon Park Community Center not-just-a-CRAFT-FAIR on Saturday, November 21. I can’t wait to see their newly renovated space! So glad to be back! And a little sad that I have to skip out early. The event runs from 9 AM – 3 PM but due to a family thing, I’ll be packing up around 1 PM. Come check us out, get your first look at the new digs, and treat yourself to some delectable baked goods and gourmet (Parmesan Reggiano anyone?) foods. It’s sure to be a fun day – hope to see you there!
