The Big Crafty

Had a great time at The Big Crafty in Asheville at the Asheville Art Museum last Sunday. Sold pots and Sock Monkeys with my good friend Kelly. Was a great fun atmosphere with the best Asheville has to offer... young, old, weird, not weird you name it... I just love this town. My sis made the sock monkeys, the left overs are on their way back to her so check out her shop if you can't resist.

I was also featured in a Mountain Express article about the success of online shops. Check it out!

So thanks for voting! I am so psyched here in NC we have not voted for a democratic president since '76 with Carter... well I was here... I just hadn't popped out yet! I am so thankful that the American people rallied and let OUR voices be heard! Young and old, black, yellow, pale, tan, orange... male, female, gay, straight... we have to start listening and talking and moving towards peace and compassion. I truly believe this is the start of something awesome...

As Gandhi said... YOU MUST BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD...my favorite quote in the world for some of my favorite people and just a few of the reason this girl voted for HOPE

Mugs Mugs Mugs!

I have posted some images of my mug glaze colors... from top down the colors are Robin's Egg Blue and Rust (these are both Matte glazes and are lined with a white liner), Black Pearl and Hare's Fur(these are glossy and the Hare's Fur is lined with the Black Pearl glaze for a nice dark interior), and Cobalt Ash and Midnight Ash(these too are matte and lined with white... the lighter color is in a different style than the other colors)

As with all items at Lazy Dog Pottery, each is dishwasher safe, microwave safe and 100% food safe and non toxic... And 100% handmade by me! What could be better than a handmade mug?
I decorate each mug with some opalescent white dots so each one is unique. They sell for $18.00 each, which includes shipping and handling.

I have mugs available in each of these colors and can make more so check 'em out at
Lazy Dog Pottery. There are also some one of a kind mugs listed here too... these are only available while they last due to changes in material.

Thanks for looking!

VOTE please please please

This is just my plea to those of you who may not be planning on using your voice next tuesday November 4th! It does not matter if you vote for the same person I do but please excercise your voice and VOTE. It is too important not to. So many women fought so that women today can speak out about what is important to them... so many men too... and there are still people in this world who may never have that right... So VOTE...

Craft Attack 2008

we had a blast at Craft Attack 2008 in Charlotte NC. it was in Independence Park , the weather was beautiful and the people were nice. we were glad to be a part of the event and look forward to doing more things like this! maybe next time we will get a dog sitter and swing for a hotel room! We were on the road from our house at 5:30 am and did not return home until 9:30 pm. long day!
we were bombed with acorns from the giant oak trees in the park, but no pots were harmed!

catching up!

Pizza Show Off

I have to show off our garden pizza. Richard is the best dough stretcher ever and the cherry tomato basil sauce we came up with is soooo good. Plus we have a surplus of cherry tomatos! Thanks manda for the dough recipe and thanks m & d for the freezer we are filling! Manda you's be so proud of me learning how to feed my freezer! I love pulling out a fully homecooked whole food meal and just heating it up!

Settling In

Howdy y'all... life continues down here in NC. We finally got some much needed rain. In fact our local news and my boss recorded over 5 1/2" of rain. I spent a bit of last night while Fay covered us with rain running around bucketing water out of my gradge! But every drop was needed and I am so thankful. Richard and I just started seeing it rain, even with blue arid skys we saw it rain so rain it did!
I have been working on the studio most nights. Last week I was feeling stressed, but I stopped and reminded myself just how much time I have. I giggle as I say that because I feel so stressed sometimes, but I am trying hard to live in the moment and take NOW in to its
fullist. I had a successful firing at Hank's and am really getting excited about the fairs I am a part of. In September I will be at The North Carolina Arboretum's Heritage Craft Festival. Then in October I will be hanging with the folks in Charlotte at Craft Attack! 2008. I am gearing up making as much stuff as I can. I've been cranking out bowls, mugs, tea bowls, soy nottles. I even worked out some new pendant ideas.

I will also leave you with a great pic of our Sunday morning hike. I cannot wait to get up there this weekend and see those trees happy again... clover had her first hike witha pack. We put a water bottle and peanut butter to weigh her down and she did great! Waya was loving it as she did not have to carry a thing.
Richard is settling into his new role in the Plant Sciences Department at University of Tennessee. I am so proud of him! He is really excercising those brain cells for us! I guess when he married me he had to make up for lost time! Just kidding! No he is loving it. Teaching a plant id class and getting started on his thesis ideas and classes. I will keep you all posted as new news arrives.
Love to you all... woof woof meow
