I am such a BAD blogger!!

well, not all that bad i guess but i just can't seem to find the time to write anything lately. it's been pretty busy around here, i've been working pretty hard trying to get my studio in order. drywall and insulation is up, heater is in, wheel and extruder is in place, now i'm working on getting some shelving and countertops in place, pics below. both shots are on the same wall to either side of the door. i still need to tape and mud the drywall but i want to get to work, i figure i'll do that later.

all this while trying to get some work completed!! right now i've got a glaze fire going, i'll probably be up 1/2 the night tending the darn thing. i'd have waited till tomorrow but tuesdays are therapy day in our house and i'll be headed to helena for various appts and errand running. plus i've got a few orders in there that i want to get shipped out ASAP. and i need to get some things listed in my etsy shop. sooo much to do and so little time. one new developement that i'm looking forward to is a friend of mine has a daughter in 8th grade that wants to learn more about pottery. i've been asked to teach her in exchange for her baby sitting for me!! perfect transaction as far as i'm concerned. i've made it very clear that i'm no teacher nor a master potter by any means, but i can get her though the basics easily enough. and she can watch the kids while i get in some studio time. can't wait!!

so i'm trying to expand my online presence a bit. i made up a fanpage on facebook, but can't figure out how to link it up w/ everything. oh well... i'll get it eventually. i also joined the etsy mud team a couple weeks back. such a nice and helpful group of people, i've already learned so much from them and i'm looking forward to the challenges. i can already tell i'll be modivated to step out of my comfort zone which i'm looking forward to. you should see the platter i'm workign on for the blue challenge lol. and i really need to work on my website. it's pretty pathetic and has a bunch of older stuff on it. yet one more thing to put on the list. maybe i'm tryign to do too much at one time. duh. you think?!? lol...

off to pick up gracie at the bus stop. hopefully i'll post some pics later in the week.

  1. Time - there is never enough of it!

    Your studio looks like it's coming along well. And great news about the lessons for sitting exchange! I'm wondering if I could do lessons for chocolate... :)
