Thanksgiving food, Pumpkins and Pots

First and foremost I am thankful for this beautiful boy.  I weep at the thought of not having this little monkey being the focal point of each and every day.  It is picture day today, and he has on his wonderful navy blue Lord and Taylor blazer. Let me be clear, my sometimes socialist, compassionate champion of the poor and oppressed is downright republican when it comes to his clothing choices. He likes to be a sharp dressed man, and sometimes goes for hipster, but today he could have passed for a right winger in an election!

I am so looking forward to the next four days, like all makers and artists who lived a duel life like I do, long weekends can offer chunks of time to get stuff done, like finally finish that big plate order, yes it is coming Carla Dayholos! Yes, I am thankful for big orders too, that will allow to get the credit card down so I can buy more clay.

It seems funny to still have passion flowers blooming in the garden and I am making Christmas ornaments, but that is the life of a maker. Got to get to them now, as my last big kiln of the year is coming up in 2 weeks. Can't believe I said that!! Mug orders are coming in, and I really need to write them down, or get me a seccatary, like Jethro used to say on the Beverly Hillbillies.
so over the next few weeks, I will be bringing in Holiday goodies like snowflakes, polar bears and buffalo to the various stores. I have to start tomorrow on the big bowls, and teapots so wish me luck and flexibility.
