The Buzzzzz

I have been a busy bee! Getting new goodies together for a shop update! The weather has gone from summer warm and dry to fall foggy and cool. Even it it makes taking photos a challenge, I love it!

These designs will be buzzing their way into my shop tomorrow (4-23-15) at 11 am PST.

Pushing Myself Into Spring.

I had such a good time making these little bud vase pendants. Challenging my creativity and pushing my abilities to do more feels so good. It is always a confidence booster to have an idea come to fruition. I've had this idea in my head for ages but didn't feel ready to tackle the process needed to make them a reality. But here they are, begging for some spring blooms….

You can find some of these designs in my indiemade shop.

Cats In Hats! A Book Review...

I really don't think anything is cuter than a cat dressed up in a costume so I find the book "Cats In Hats" utterly adorable and sweet. Of course I can't help letting my mind wander to what the photo shoot was like. In my mind, more than a few bandaids were involved. I would like to think that Sweetie Pie, Oni, and Pyewacket would love to wear little hats, tipping them at one another slightly as they passed each other in the hall. Browsing through this book I love how sweet and sometimes witty each project is. Although I've never crocheted or knitted, I could tell by the instructions in "Cats In Hats" that I could most likely complete a project. I could also see how these sweet hats could be adapted for other materials. Now,hold still kitty, kitty, kitty…

New designs...

It has been a crazy busy time in the studio. I have been obsessed with shape and form and how the glazes play with each other. Each bead has a different design on each side so it is sort of like getting two beads for one!

These designs are headed for gaea.indiemade.com today at noon (PST).
