Busy on Etsy

I have been trying to do my pottery, do my diet business and have also been in charge of the treasuries on The Interior Design Team. For those of you that are not familiar with treasuries, I have posted one above. This one was on the front page of Etsy and had one of my bowls on it. It is considered very desirable to get on the front page.

I have also been very busy wrapping and mailing. I have had quite a few sales this month:>) One of the sales was a custom order for a set of four Butterfly Dinner Plates and Bowls. I made the bowls with no problems, but after making eight plates, I have six left to glaze and fire. I hope at least four make it in good condition. I don't know why plates are so hard to keep from cracking:>(

I made the glazes yesterday and am glazing tomorrow.

Back from Alaska

Well , we are back from our vacation to Alaska and I am ready to make pots:>)
Alaska was awesome, too awesome to describe. I have put up a few photos, but we toke 500 and ended up keeping 300. We are now busy scrapbooking our adventure and the scrapbooking is taking up a lot of room in my pottery/craft room. I had to clear off all my pots from the table and my husband says there still is not enough room!!

Have been working on a set of butterfly dishes and bowls that an etsy customer ordered. Will post photos when done. Also sold a teapot, some platters and quite a few personalized mugs. The best part of a sale, is when the customer emails me about how much they love my pottery. It feels sooo good:>)
