First of all, I have to tell you that I got a note in the mail today saying that my application to be a vendor at Shakori Hills Music Festival was accepted. YAY! and then OH NO! I don't have near enough stuff made for a four day music festival and I don't have a clue how to even survive as a vendor for four days with a bunch of stoned hippies at a music festival like this one! Those of you that have done Shakori, I will take on any and all suggestions if you are willing to share your knowledge! The BEST part of this is: if you go here- http://www.shakorihills.org/directions/
you will see that Bella Fleck is the headliner and seven names down from Bella Fleck is COLE PARK!!!!! MY baby is on the same billing as Bella Fleck, does it get any better? The weekend of Shakori, Wesley turns 17 and her band has been asked to play there. Should be an amazing birthday weekend for her don't you think?
I just thought I would show you this scale I picked up last week at a local antique store. It is an old postal scale and weighs up to 25 lbs. just the weight of my bags of clay, how convenient.
So this weekend, I am cleaning my very messy studio and getting ready to get down to serious business of making pottery. I stopped by the NC Craft Gallery today and she has sold everything I have brought in, so I need to get her some more things and get some inventory going.
The balls are getting bigger......
and my studio is getting smaller. The bigger the pieces I make the less space I have. This top shelf will hold several long boards of cups and bowls but only two 12 lb. vases. This space makes me crazy, there is absolutely no room to work here and it's still too cold to move outside.
mess, mess, mess, everywhere!
So I'm going in there Saturday morning and not coming out until there is a clean place to work!!
