Back to Normal

Phew! I’m starting to feel back to normal after a couple weeks of high anxiety. I just finished fixing my inventory on the web store. I took down everything that sold over the weekend. It’s nice that all my work fits into the cupboards I store it in again. I can tell I need to start making more, which is cool with me. I always have ideas I want to get to. I need to work on more wine cups and beer mugs. There are pots ready to be barrel fired sitting on my counter, and I have corks that are waiting for more piggies. Of the 12 piggy banks I brought to sell at the show I ended up with only one that came back home with me. This little guy’s the only one I have left for sale right now.

I’m so relieved and proud that the show went as well as it did. There was a steady stream of people there all day. I was able to snap a few pictures, but didn’t have time to really capture it all. It sounds like the rest of the artists and craftspeople that showed enjoyed themselves and sold a lot of work too. We’re definitely in talks for doing this again next year. I’m ready for a break now though, and some time back at the wheel. <3

Parrot Feathers was a Big Success!

The show went great and I sold a lot of work. My current inventory in the store needs to be adjusted, and I will get to that tomorrow after I get home. A lot of what is in the store right now was sold, but I need to get back to my computer to update it completely. Sorry for any inconvenience. I’ll be updating more soon. <3

Parrot Feathers Art and Craft Show Tomorrow!

Well, after many months of work and preparation Cheeseburger in Caseville is here and tomorrow is our Parrot Feathers Art and Craft show. Not going to lie, I’m pretty nervous. Anxiety is very normal for me, but this last week or so it has up there. I’m ready to go though, a little more packing this morning and we’re on our way. I went through and priced all my work with price tags made from my business cards a few days ago. I think it looks great and makes me feel kind of professional 🙂

It’s always a little fun to get all the inventory I have out and go over it again. I have some really nice stuff 😉 I was able to get a few more piggy banks made to bring up with me, that makes a dozen total. I had the extra room in my last glaze firing to refire those 3 vases in the top photo too. I’m usually not one to refire a piece, but they had such nice shapes and i just wasn’t super pleased with the glaze after the first firing. I gave it a shot and all 3 are way better the second time around. Perhaps I should give refirning a try more often.

I digress, the show is tomorrow and behind all the nerves I’m excited. There are a lot of great artists and craftspeople selling along side me whos work I’m looking forward to checking out, and probably purchasing as well. I hope we get a good turn out and it all runs smoothly. Wish us luck! Hope to see you there <3
