Coming soon!

In the midst of coffee break! Stay tuned, lots of goodies being posted soon & I'm thinking of a special *free shipping* that might help with the penny pinching! Have a good night! zzz..

Studio sale was a hit!!!

Just a quickie post today.. I will be back tomorrow, its just been such a long one! Phewww!

I hope everyone had a happy and healthy Thanksgiving holiday with your families. We had a great time eating Tofurky, watching Up, and lounging at my parent's house for the day.

This weekend was also our annual studio sale, and we had the perfect weather for it! Last year it snowed pretty much all weekend, so the traffic was a bit slow. Thankfully, this weekend I made many new friends that stopped by! Here's a little peak into our weekend!

Also, I spent the day taking pics of some of my new pieces. I started listing in my Etsy shop ( but I'm a little beat and will have to finish tomorrow!

Check out the new pieces, & stay tuned because there is more to come!!!

Happy Monday! xo

Thanksgiving is here... (almost)

It's official people... the holidays are here and you know what that means.

Tis' the season to be crafting more than you've ever craft before!

It's a super rainy day here in New Bedford Massachusetts. I've been working at the studio since about 8:30am after dropping off Miss Thumbelina with our dear friend Lynne the dog groomer. It took me about 2 hours to carefully pack my kiln fuller than she's ever been, but I managed to get everything in for this weekend's studio sale. I can't believe how much stuff I have crammed in to it.. I am SO VERY EXCITED to open it up first thing tomorrow!!! :) A couple of new designs will be available, mainly holiday oriented. It's always exciting to see how a new design will roll with my regulars!

Good news is that I'm ahead of the game compared to past years which is amazing considering I am the world's biggest procrastinator. My studio is nearly set up already! The studio christmas tree is up, christmas lights galore, furniture set up & polished, most of my work is even tagged and on display! AMAZING!!! If you know me personally, you know usually I am a mad woman morning of. I guess 30's are making me more responsible! ;)

Why still stressed you ask? Well, unknowingly I booked myself five shows (7 days) pretty much back to back, and I'm hoping to have enough work to go around. So I'm getting ready for those now allowing new work to dry then bisque, then glaze. We will see!

So time to kick back with this darling glass of merlot I've been sipping and listen to a little Gaby Moreno. She is wonderful! She's from Guatemala originally, now living in LA, singing in both english and spanish beautifully! Such a pleasure, we got to meet after a show she headlined last week at the Zeiterion theatre here in town with my favorite, Ani Difranco. Let me tell you, I have not stopped listening to Gaby's cd since! I love finding new music! She is rockin.. I promise! Check her out, tell me what you think!

Have a great Thanksgiving and if you are local, please stop by the Hatch Street Studios holiday show! Check for more info.

oh *sniffle*

Taking it easy today, the week before my studio holiday sale. Not by choice of course, just feeling a little under the weather. Started with a sneezing fit & now its the whole shebang.. coughing, sneezing, stuffy head, sore body nonsense. NOT NOW!!!

What can a girl do?!

So I dragged my pretty little self out of bed around 11am (Tylenol pm had knocked me out!) Then carried myself and a 25 pound bag of clay up 65 stairs & down a super long hallway to my studio as fast as I could, avoiding conversation at all cost! Today conversation alone could drain the last few drops of energy I still possess!

I did manage to work a tiny bit. I cleaned up and drilled holes into about 50 porcelain holiday ornaments I left to dry on Saturday. They came out really lovely! Washed my hands and called it a day!

I feel super guilty being home with my feet up, carton of orange juice by my side, Tom and Jerry keeping me entertained. Sometimes things are just beyond your control.

I hope you are having a productive Monday! ~Ciao

So happy to be back!

I don't know if you've noticed.. but it has been since I've last been online!

I've missed you, and I hope you've missed me too..

So here we are in November and winter is just about here! I've been busy the past couple of weeks cleaning house at my studio and beginning to make new work for the five shows I will be attending this holiday season. The first being our studio's annual holiday sale at Hatch Street Thanksgiving weekend. For those of you who are local, or looking for a good weekend drive, check out for more info. We invite outside artists to join us, and have a ton of amazing artists participating this year! I look forward to doing some shopping for myself. You know, a little one for you, two for me accompanied by a glass of red and home made h'dourves! I have a ton of work to do now that I'm up and running, so you will definitely see me around again! On the top of my to do list is to update my Etsy shop with some new goodies I designed this summer. I just took a peak at what I have up and oh boy do I have a lot more!!! So here's a sneak peek as to what my studio is looking like, and why I need some elves! Have a great week!
