How could this be so? On Pinterest they tell you how many followers you have on your home page, and apparently they are assuming that you will only have one follower for so short of a time that they do not bother to make a singular setting for when you have your first follower. However, I have had my one follower for several days, and I keep seeing “1 Followers.” Maybe someone else is following me today, I think to myself. No. Just the one.

I am always amazed by the people who have big, huge boards full of all sorts of pinned stuff. The question must be asked (again, I’m sure): how do these people have time for all of that pinning. I am happy if I have time to pin one or two things, every couple of days. Well, thanks to them we all have the pleasure of viewing their bountiful pins.


I heart Bliss

Traci French consistently features the most beautiful things on her blog Bliss. Her eye for clothing and interiors especially makes me jealous. But mostly it is just a pleasure to peruse. I am a little late to post, but all the same, happy to be included in her list of things she hearts on I heart monday.

Hurricane Fab will be featuring my work this Friday, 14, for 3 days. If you don’t already know, Fab is a mammoth sale site where design is king and where they feature everyday design products with limited quantities. The hurricane of preparation has been strengthening and is about to make landfall. Throwing, firing, SKU-ing, measuring, estimating, more throwing, firing, etc. It is a bit of a wild ride. So, my stuff will be there through the weekend and there will be some deals including one-of-a-kind items. Just sign in at and go shop yourself some great design or find my preview here.


freshening up

In the Midwest, you can say “neat up” when you want to tidy up and and make things nice. There is nothing like the feeling of cleaning or just a simple tidying. I like to rearrange the furniture and organize, it can be very satisfying to have a fresh look at things. Today I did some freshening up here on the website. The Photography and Pottery sections have been revamped and updated and they are so much easier to navigate. Sometimes WordPress is a little clunky and you have to adapt to the template. With that in mind, it is sometimes worth it just to keep it simple. Here is the revised Pottery section and here is the new Photography section.

New in my shop.
