“He is doing a new thing” (in me) That is my inspiration for this season. Isaiah 43:19. The other day a friend mentioned on Facebook that she was selling her house and had to put away all her art supplies for a while. I shutter at the thought. But it got me thinking about how we get used to having many things at our fingertips but then there is a shift and we have limited resources. We can get frustrated, stomp our feet, curse the air, and ask ‘why me, ‘why now?’. But eventually the disrupt forces us to think…

June is Wedding Month. Give something unique.
June is the month for weddings. Do you know anyone who is getting married this summer? I do. My nephew is getting married. I am excited for him and his future wife. His mom and dad are so proud. And I know what I am going to give them. One of my botanical pottery pieces. I have recently designed some fun, whimsical serving dishes, spoon rests, dipping bowls, candle holders, change catchers. I also have keepsakes for weddings and anniversaries. It’s a tradition to give a pomegranate to a Jewish wedding couple. Why…
Springtime in Tucson
These days are gorgeous with our spring season upon us. Here is a quick update to let you know the new items I just restocked the local galleries with. Right now is the perfect time to walk, skip, or ride bike over to Tohono Chul Park. I was just there today and the wild flowers are amazing. It’s so inspiring. Here are a few pieces at Tohono Chul Park: http://tohonochulpark.org/ And there are some fun ornaments or souvenirs for Easter gifts and winter visitors. By the way, I do custom work. If you see anything here that speaks to you…
Being Busy, Fall Fun and Show Schedule
I have been really focused. Pushing myself to get inventory built up, marketing, writing a business plan (or I keep thinking about that one, haven’t quite got to it yet), relearning how to follow a budget, while juggling small jobs here and there until the holiday buying season kicks in. But I have managed to mix business with pleasure and took a jaunt to Sedona a couple weeks ago with a friend. I just love it up there. It’s so inspiring. The rocks, the sunsets, the art! I am so grateful to be able to take it all in….
Art Show this weekend, March 15-17.
I wanted to jog every ones memory about the Tucson Museum of Art Spring Craft Show, Friday thru Sunday, hours 9-5. It is supposed to be in the 90’s this weekend. So slather on the sunscreen, wear your floppy hats. It’s t shirts and shorts weather! I am not going to complain about the high temps so soon…we have had a cold winter so I am ready for the heat! I will be in booth 83. I am so excited to roll out my new designs for 2013. I have designed a pomegranate series of sugar/sauce bowls, pom. ornaments, and…
