Just in time for the holidays!

Check out this great article in the NY Times about buying here to read more.

And don't forget to check out the Bazaar Bizarre Eastside edition on Larchmere Blvd this Fri and Sat from 10-8pm during the holiday stroll. Black Friday is much more fun when you can shop local and avoid the malls. Hope to see you there! Happy Turkey Day. Gobble gobble.

Another installment of "My Life in List Form". Because that is only way I accomplish anything.
1. This weekend I made 80 ornaments. Today I get to spend my time at the studio prettying them up. I hate this part.
2. New plan. Marry rich. Get full time live in masseuse. This ceramics chick's back hurts.
3. Beer Engine in a few. Starting this week out right.
4. We are a few days away from my favorite meal of the year. I'm a foodie.
5. 3 down. Lots to go. 1 inch down as well. Thats even better.
6. Christmas tree is up. Purple, silver and pink. Its like Jem and frickin holograms.
7. 5 bottles of left over wine. I live alone. That's 5 good nights this week.
8. Mop the kitchen floor again. Tonic water incident last evening. Oops.
9. Soup of the week: vegetable with israeli couscous. mmmm.
10. I'm thankful this year that: I'm in an amazing studio with a lot of supportive artists, I have a day job in the arts, I don't work in retail purgatory (which includes not being covered in glitter, sweat or tears at the end of a work day), That I have 2 weeks at Christmas to spend with my family and relax, and that I have lots of shows coming up so I get to share my artwork with all of you and get out of the studio and be social! Oh yes, and I'm thankful I have amazing friends who will watch my booth for me. You rock!

another installment of: my life in list form. because without lists i would never get anything done. ever.
1. i'm feeling defeated lately. one medication has ruined my life. its supposed to help. it didn't.
2. i have too much to do and trying to fit a social life into this schedule is difficult. age 29 should be fun, yes?
3. its cold. its dark early. its time to find a winter home. not. in. ohio.
4. i still haven't found a gnome to follow me around and assist me with my work and chores.
5. if this gnome could go to the gym for me that would be even better.
6. this list is depressing.
7. do 10,000 things before the open studio on sat.
8. go to taco night.
