Featured on Etsy Front Page

Had a nice surprise this morning when I checked Google Analytics. My views shot way up so after looking at -- which tells a shop if they have been featured on Etsy -- I saw that I had been. My celedon green soap dish. It's only for 30 minutes or something like that, but the traffic is high. Very nice surprise! Thanks much to StonesinBloom Etsy shop!

New Kiln is Working Out Great!

For a while it was too cold to run but I'm working in lots of firings. So far, so good! It took some experimenting and some sad days of things not turning out. Some research and questions to local experts helped me iron those out. You can save different firing programs -- most have several steps and speeds to different temperatures that take several hours -- then the cooling periods (annealing). So far, I have three different programs now that are stored in the kiln's computer that are working great!

An Orchid in the Midst of Winter

I have had this little orchid for a few years. It was barely hanging through the summer but came to life on a windowsill it started blooming again right after Christmas.

More Snow Photos and a Dazy Sighting

Dazy paw prints in the snow. I love how she does not walk a straight line.
This is Dazy doggy by St. Francis basking in the sun (earlier this year).

We made this evergreen our outdoor Christmas Tree.
Kitty cat tracks in the snow. Better stay away from Dazy.
