New Fabric Flower Brooches

These are three of my new fabric flower brooches. I used a combination of lace, satin and cotton fabric. When used as home decor, such as on a lampshade, they add a warm, unique touch.

Remember Westby? She is our 6 month old puppy. We've had her for a few months and her and Beauie, our 3 year old cat, are getting along very well!

Woodfiring at Wheaton

WheatonArts is so many things to me. it is my place for employment, inspiration, my studio space for ceramics and a place to spend time with friends. Today was my birthday and I went to WheatonArts to participate in their woodfiring.

This woodfiring was the last class of a series of ceramic classes. The participants of this class spent two classes, taught by Terry Plasket, learning how to make pots for the wood kiln. Terry is a mentor and a dear friend of mine. I began studying under Terry when I was finishing my undergraduate degree at Rowan University. Experience is really the best way to learn and he offered me a concentrated time for hands-on experience that a formal education couldn't.

WheatonArts offers a variety of classes (glassblowing, ceramics, woodcarving, silk painting, knitting, etc.) Check out their website to learn more about WheatonArts' classes

Our Puppy/Dog

She is getting bigger by the day! My husband took this photo at the state park where we take walks.

Etsy Progress
I am revisiting my project to get an Etsy page up and running for The Little Teapot. I have a small inventory of items that I hope to be selling in time for the Holidays. These include scarves, flower broaches and prints. Stay tuned!
