I SWEAR I'VE BEEN WORKING!!!
















These are the 2nd run on the plates I've been working on for a custom dinnerware set...
I'd didn't like the 1st set so I did them...again.
The bowls are done, the small plates are done.
None of it is glazed but... I am moving right along... still have work to do on Jake's 3 costumes...
It's all good.

I broke my printer... removing paper from a paper jam,
I ripped out some ribbon...can't just SNAP it back in!!! Argh...
So I HAVE TO take it somewhere tomorrow...
Can't print USPS labels ...
I have to do it the old fashioned way in person at the post office where:
They WILL hate me...
Had a teapot shipped back to me from a show BROKEN...
I'm doing like 20 loads of laundry...
My skin is molting(yes loverly, I know).
MY tax work is sitting on my desk ready to attack me.

Snowboarding

Well... I can't upload any good photos from this computer I am using at the place we are staying in Beaver Creek, Colorado...
BUT...
I am having a great time.
We go home on Valentines Day... My taped up knee is surviving...of course the other one is bruised... But... THIS is SNOW BOARDING!
My kids took a lesson today and my husband went back country snow boarding in Vail Pass...So I went in the singles line and got in A LOT of runs..
I tried some trees too,in and out...sometimes successful... and sometimes I wiped out... I DID NOT HIT ANY TREES! But I had done some with the family and this built up my confidence more...
Practiced 360s- on land(both directions)...feels like ballet...
I have decided I like the pattern the board makes in the snow... the s-curves remind me alot of the ceramic work I do....
So...
It's coming to an end tomorrow, I am craving clay.... yummy clay... I have 8 plates to trim and carve and hopefully they stayed damp!!! But I have several things to work on...as usual!
I will try to relax... until I return...then I will try to not stress out!
