updates from the studio

I have been crazy busy over here and while this time of year I am typically in the middle of an online class, this time around I decided to clear my schedule and spend more time creating some unique handmade goodies for the shop. While I love teaching, blogging and working on a variety of projects for other people, my #1 love is making things. In the coming weeks and months I will have all kinds of fun stuff hitting my shop and today I wanted to give you a little peak!

As you know I have been sharing posts about my pottery past and my potter parents but I have also been collaborating with my dad! I am super excited and grateful to have such a talented dad to help me out. He has been throwing pots for me- the first batch I requested a tall cup that could be used for drinking or decor or supplies or flowers. 

I have been glazing the cups with all kinds of pretty designs. The process is crazy time consuming because I am putting my heart and soul into each and every one. This batch is ready to be fired in the kiln then they will be hitting the shop and I will make an announcement very soon!

Andy and I have also been busy creating handmade art journals. I have SO MUCH paper from left over from projects and demos and I am always looking for ways to use that paper! Andy has been binding all my paper into some really cool one of a kind art journals and I can't wait to share the entire collection.

And of course I've got a big batch of my canvas pouches coming to the shop very soon!

I love turning my drawings into stamps and I have 5 new rubber stamp sets hitting the shop in the next couple of weeks. I always draw and design things that I would use in my mixed media projects and I am pretty sure all of you are going to like using them too!

As if all these handmade projects aren't enough...I am hard at work filming new online classes that I will announce in the coming weeks and months- I've got some fun stuff planned!

I can't wait to add all these new goodies to the shop- I will be rolling things out in the coming weeks all the way up to the holidays so stay tuned for shop update announcements!
