Next up, is a week full of glazing and firing kilns, packaging and labelling display items, and making brass pendants. Its still a pretty overwhelming amount of work. I may enlist the help of my friends this week, if I can lure them over here with energy drinks and snacks! I will likely be pretty sparse for the next few days while I do all of this work, but don't worry, I am hanging in here! I do hope I can get a picture of all of the bisque when it is done, and some pictures of the display dry runs. YAY! Only one week left!!!

I finally finished my wet clay portion of my production for the Bead & Button show! I finished yesterday, and today was spent sanding and detailing. I loaded up the big kiln and it is firing a bisque now. I packed that kiln FULL. My hands are tired and sore, and I am pretty exhausted from all of the clay work. I am taking tonight to have a little hand and foot spa treatment, and to take care of my puppy, who had some dental work done today, and is feeling very needy.
