I am shopping

 I am doing my shopping for others in the store today.
We get the emails that say, pick out 4 pieces, or my sister needs, do you have, could you ship?
Yes, yes, yes, we can do that for you and we are happy to get it picked out and packed off.
Santa is working overtime.

There are lot's of choices left to chose from. I have in mind 4 of the oil lamps...they make great gifts.

I made granola today and as I was waiting for my cook/stir time I thought up a way to pass the time.
I'm calling it; what can you do in 5 minutes.
I found that I could water the plants, wash the crud off the refrigerator, oven and dishwasher. Wipe out a sink, pick up the socks.
 5 minutes works well and when I have 10 the dust is all mine.

The semester is counting down at the school. There are only so many things you can make, dry and fire at this point. There is a great amount of glazing going on.
We are loading the Salt kiln next week and firing. It has been many years since I have fired any salt with gas. It should be interesting. Thank goodness I have one of my co-teachers to help me out on this one. I am loading with the students on Monday, firing will start in the wee hours on Tuesday, from then we shall see if we get to see the moon rise or the moon set.

I hope that the next few weeks are good to you all. I know how busy life gets this time of year.
Be happy, be safe, be merry.

I never knew you offered personal shopper services ! Hope you and Mark sell a lot of pots and hug a lot of babies in the coming month.

It’s amazing what you can fit into 5 minutes if you put your mind to it.

Nice service to offer busy shoppers.

Your shop displays look great! I love the sectioned mug shelf. Did you build that yourself?

I haven't had an open studio sale in years. The only studio shoppers I get are family and neighbors.

BTW, My lost shipments are back on the radar. Yea!

Have a lovely weekend :)
