Weekend before last, I went up to Washington, actually a bit past Washington to Silver Spring, Maryland, to be part of the special Summer Edition of the Crafty Bastards Craft Show. Jeremy and I left on Friday evening, stopping in Fredericksburg (where we met, went to school and fell in love) to have dinner downtown at Sammy T's. Then we got to our hotel very late, got up around 7 am on Saturday and headed over to the show. Setting up was very hot, but really not all that bad. The show was was well-attended and the other artists and crafters were awesome. It only rained for about two minutes, which was great because it was *supposed* to rain a lot in the late afternoon. We packed up the whole booth at the end of the show in about 45 minutes, which is very fast for me, and were home in Richmond by 8:30 pm, where we spent a little time with our Beagle, Tela, and then went out to eat sushi, yum. . . I wish all craft shows could be so pleasant, believe me I had some rough ones this Spring.

A special thanks my husband for driving and helping to load and unload the car so many times, the ladies at Art Star for putting on the show, and everyone who came out to the show - especially on Saturday in the rain.

So with school out of the way, I'm busy doing art and craft shows, getting ready for more art and craft shows, throwing pottery, making tiny little clay birds to put on pottery, making, glazing and assembling porcelain jewelry, going to IKEA for new display furniture, putting together said IKEA display furniture and generally trying to catch up on everything that got set aside while I was Student Teaching this Winter & Spring.

Tomorrow, Saturday -November 17th , is the first of the 2007 Kiln Opening at The Poddery in Mathews County, Virginia, where I create most of my work. I have worked along side The Poddery's owners, Robert and Karen Podd, going on 14 years now.
The Kiln Openings are always a good time for us and our visitors. The Showroom is full of pottery and I have my best section of pottery and jewelry for the Holiday Shopping Season on display.
If you miss the Kiln Opening tomorrow - there's another one next Saturday - November 24th, too.

Last Sunday, Jeremy and I went to DC for the Crafty Bastards Art and Craft Show put on by the City Paper. The weather was beautiful and the show was awesome. The Richmond Craft Mafia was also there right across the aisle from me.
I will be in Alexandria tomorrow for Art on the Avenue and we are expecting another beautiful day - so come on out if you're in the Capital Region tomorrow!

So I was really busy at the studio this week finishing up a wholesale order, loading the kiln for my upcoming show - Crafty Bastards - and just getting stuff done so I can go to the beach for part of next week for a mini-vacation, but I couldn't resist making more little bird bowls! They are just so cute and fun to make. I don't really see myself as having much talent in the area of sculpting - so I really surprised myself with how well these birds are coming out. Each little bird is completely unique and has it's own little personality. I even made some humming birds! More pictures on Flickr.
