It has been fun for me to get back in the clay, it has been a great challenge to try new forms and glazing. I used to love more sculptural pieces but I can’t seem to get away from functional forms, specifically things to use in the kitchen. Here’s my first round, testing new glazes on some ceramic juicers, salt pig, and I have been trying out all kinds of new mug shapes. I like the gray and dijon combo on this mug, and how the handle (albeit it very large) wraps inside the mug.

- Going to see Incredibles 2 for Father’s Day... these folks were ahead of us, feeling like our family is underdressed 😳!Sometimes you just need to take the matter into your own hands... I’ve been wanting to paint a cornhole set for some time. I was giddy when I saw this class offered at my local Home Depot. Tonight I built my own boards... now to choose a design. Let the lawn games begin!The early bird gets the shmear. The little one wanted to get up early and be one of the first fifty people at a new Einstein’s by our house. The older child chose to sleep in. I’m thinking natural consequences may come into play at some point...Behind the smiles there were a few tears... We loved our neighbors on Thornhill; these girls and their mamas! They were such an answer to prayer when we moved here. We have been renting in Colorado for the last two years and the owner wanted to move back in. 😓Thankfully we were able to find a new home to purchase nearby and make it a bit more of our own. Trusting the bond that was formed and biker gang will never be broken!Last day of school!!! So proud of my gold metal academic girls, they rocked their classes with perfect scores.We woke up early this morning to watch the royal wedding. This afternoon we toasted the new couple with high tea and fascinators!
