April fools day
So instead I will wish you a happy and fantastic April day full of rainbows, bunnies, butterflies, and unicorns.
Because, that is just how I feel when spring gets here and I would rather share some good with you than a laugh at you. But- I would be happy to have a laugh with you.
Mark took a picture of one of his lamps from the bottom side to show you how he does the bottom of the lamp. He throws the bottom as if he is making a flower pot, with the bottom drawn up and a whole placed in the center. Later he flips them over and cuts the hole on the side.
This makes for a nice lamp bottom and give plenty of room to attach the inside lamp parts.
You just have to be careful not to make the bottom too thin. If you do it could crack while tighten the nuts.
Here is a close up of the textured base of a lamp.
I love the way the texture will catch the glaze.
Last week was one of those upside down weeks for me in which I almost mailed a package to myself instead of the customer. In fact I had it all labeled and in the truck when I remembered that I never put the address in for the customer. I pulled out the boxes and sure enough I had sent them from me to me....
I was able to void the transaction and start fresh but here is the funny part. It cost more to ship it to myself than it did to ship to the customer.
The other funny part was Mark helped me place the labels and neither of us read what they said.
So who needs to be made a fool when I can do that so well all on my own!?
My next fool's trick was to send a gift card to the wrong address.
Yes, you read it here. I did it.
I wonder how long I have included this fine stranger in on a few family emails......
This is a close up of the blue and black combination. This glaze has so much depth to it.
The mystery flowers bloomed during the past week.
These started coming up and it took me awhile to remember that I had stuck them in the ground.
They were given to me by a friend after Lee departed this earth.
How fitting that they decided to bloom on the week leading up to her birthday. How wonderful to have this sweet reminder of her.
She would have loved these.
Happy April first.
