You have to fill the whole kiln
Mark has taken a few orders and one of them is for a nice vase, about 16 inches finished, that will be a wedding gift for a lucky couple who will tie the knot in July.
I must say that thinking ahead helps us since there is time to get the vase through the kiln and shipped before the wedding. We once shipped a wedding gift and the happy couple went on a 3 week honeymoon. When the package was not claimed it was returned to us. We found out that this is not the case if the package is not insured this one was returned as unclaimed but without insurance you could lose your package to the unclaimed department. The best lesson here is if you are checking someone's mail you should snoop a little just to see if there are any packages that need to be picked up for them. Otherwise, the package could be lost to them. In this case we just shipped again after the happy couple were back from the honeymoon. The hard part was the happy couple had to pay to have their gift shipped.
We are also losing internet every few minutes and it has me playing this cat and mouse game. It is here, now it is gone, it is back, reboot the computer, reboot the modem, it's gone, can not save, it's back, save quickly.
There is someone from the phone company coming to check things out.
Who knows it could be a ghost in the machine. I swear I have one in my kindle that rewrites as I hit reply.
It comes up with some crazy things. Sometimes they are so funny. I am bad enough with spelling and misuse of words all on my own. Tell me how auto correct is going to help me when they chose the words for me.
I see it is time for me to get back to work.
Luch break is over.
