I am leaving on vacation very soon and I am so excited! Before I go however, I have some custom orders that need to come out of the kiln, posted on etsy, purchased, and sent to the post office. Lets hope it all goes well, because if they are not buying their pot before 5pm (when the post office closes) they might not get for another three weeks!!! Talk about last minute! It was this blasted kiln schedule I swear! Anyways, besides that, I am really looking forward to my trip. My sister and brother in law are coming from Germany to meet us at Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where we found a nice place to rent. After our stay at the beach we will be visiting family in Guadalajara. I have declared that this trip will be all about food and how much of it I can stuff down my gullet.

the top picture is of a huge monster torta which I will be eating a lot of and the bottom one is coke light which I will also be consuming in extremely large quantities. It tastes much better than diet coke...not sure why and they come in glass bottles which is always better than plastic. I plan on making a food journal and maybe posting it all on Tumblr when I get back. I will be sure to share some photos with you guys too!

Been So Long!

Hello there! I know I haven't posted in so long. It has a little to do with summer fever, vacation planning, and mostly to do with the fact that I have little access to a kiln. I still haven't gotten around to getting my kiln hooked up (surprise, surprise!), and I have only a few chances to get my pots into the school kiln since school is out. Some good news is that a United Arts store has opened up near by and I no longer have to make my boyfriend take me downtown Chicago and circle the block while I haul out 150 lbs of clay. Here are some new things you will find in my shop.




In that last one with the mugs, I actually made two originally and just got around to fixing up the second one to complete the set. I have also been working on some custom orders that should be ready at the beginning of next week. Here is a simple photo of some custom bisqueware (sugar and creamer and a honey pot) I have to get glazed tonight. 

Also before I go, a little something exciting to add. Danielle Oakey Interiors Blog featured me last week. The blog is great! If you like good interior design and decorating blogs, check her out. http://danielleoakeyinteriors.blogspot.com/2011/07/perfect-pottery.html
