Almost there........

Packing for the last show of the year and hoping by next Monday I will be doing the happy dance of vacation.  I have not done this many shows in a row in quite some years and it is taking a toll on mental stability and physical capability!  While doling out meds to the dog this morning I thought ....... maybe I should take one.  One for you and one for me, it works for him with cookies.  

I walked around the house and studio and well, here is the ugly truth about packing for shows...........

All the pots did not get woven for the really big show........ 

The work tables in the studio are full of waiting pots.

The slab roller ...... most useful piece of equipment in my studio, I could never do this with a pugmill! 

The island of misfit pots, some will go most will stay.

The sentry of teapots.........

one more view of the work table........
pots abandoned on the floor.......

pots on my desk along with the foltsam and jetsam that just collects.... 

new woven pots...... love these as they fit in the palm of your hand.
thinking this might be the way to go for future shows, so easy to pack!

New design work.

A friendly email from the woman who designed the poster in Richmond, VA for the Craft + Design show a few weeks ago.  So many timse I wonder how things happen, happily I got to meet Cindy Martin, the woman responsible for the design. Now I know!   
She really did a wonderful job designing flyers, preview party invitations and every in print that went with the show.  She designed "the look".   Check out her website! 


Now onto the last minute crazies........ feed the birds, drop a car to Abby, pick up food for the dog, give explicit instruction to kids about caring for elderly dog, run to pick up food for kids and dog, go to church and pray for dog, pick up carrots and Starbucks VIA for the trip (can be consumed like pixie stix if needed) load Christmas carols on iPod for caroling in the truck at the top of my lunges....... and so it goes.
