Summer art shows have a way of sneaking up on me...well, not this year! I'm in full creating mode. Here are some of the things i've been working on...

These are just for fun! I want them flying around my booth this summer. I think this is my all time favorite glaze.

Making lots of bikes...these seem to be everyones favorite at the art market in Appleton.

Hehe...had to include this. One of my fav photos- taken a few years back when finn was just a pup.

New story beads will be available in the shop tonight!

I love comparing our before and after house pictures- boy have we come a looong way! The first pic was taken at the beginning of last summer and the second was taken yesterday. I had an etsy-free day on Monday and we were busy bees- we are in the process of fencing in our backyard, we made a new rocky flower bed and and planted lots of flowers and three new trees (a magnolia, limelight hydrangea and honeycrisp apple!).

Luke made me this cool bird out of the old lathe from inside our dining room walls (we gutted out our dining room this winter). He knew I was pining for the overpriced version in the pottery barn catalog...I like this one waaay better!
