Looking at the tiles I've posted here makes me anxious that I'm on the right track. I'm not making your mothers tiles, no sir, I am not. Well, it is what it is and there is no turning back now - Yikes!
We are going away, to Washington State, it's supposed to be hot (83-84 and thats hot to me), then it says its going to rain. Well, of course it will rain. It wouldn't be called WASHington if it didn't rain. I just made that up, do you suppose I can sell it? Sometimes I feel just too clever for myself. Someone help!!!!

It was funny to me, she can't stop doing hearts she said, and when the 50/50 show started she thought about what she should make for it....hearts. I get stuck like that too. I made fish until I just couldn't do any for a long time. While working on this 50/50 project I have hit upon making something that really appeals to me and oh, yes, I do intend to make a lot more!
My lonely little heart here has a couple of prayer boxes along for the journey.

I selected the kitty ones with blue eyes and red bows, what fun!
Plus, they are inexpensive AND she is having a sale in her shop...double whammy.

The artist gathering was inspiring and informative. It was interesting to hear that no matter what medium we work in we all experience the same failure, successes and feelings about what we do. As it turns out I am not the only not one doing one per day. Some days we do 2 or 3 and take a day or so to look at our efforts and go on from there. In fact no one could say they were sticking to the one a day idea. And here I was sweating it that I was breaking the rules and sure that someone would call me on it!!! Me, me, me...
I would like to put everyone on the sidebar to the right of my blog. If I find or am given a blog or website to link to I will add them. Please contact me!

Here are links to some of the artists websites that are participating:
I am going to begin photographing my work and showing it here - that seems to be the growing trend.
Off to check my sawdust firing in progress!

Who likes flying dreams?? Who likes the song Free Falling?
Well, I do and I put this here so I can check it out every now and then and maybe take a little "soar around".
I don't know about the UFO part but hey, it's something to think about, huh? I been thinkin about them since my yarn friend told me about them at the beach...I haven't seen them and I don't look for them either; kind of interesting that other people do see them and even talk to them, dontcha think?
Are there this kind of interesting people everywhere or only in California - well, I hear there are a few in Florida too, Elmore Leonard told me about them....
Someone quite frankly told me I marched to my own drummer and my mother in law makes big hints about it too. So nice to not worry about it though! YAY, I'm free.
Free and up to my belly button in clay.
My 50/50 project bombed so I am rebuilding. The kiln ate my homework, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. There were just a few in there actually but it was heartbreaking, heartbreaking and liberating. I got out the clay and started slinging, I am very pleased with what I have done so far, the problem is glazing. Maybe I won't glaze them, I don't know. Today I did a small sawdust firing...good, good, it turned out good. I don't think I am asking enough money for my work. I'm working pretty hard on them, I wonder if I am locked in to the dollar amount; I did sign a contract...
