Fellow bloggers

These very cool cups were made by my good pal Laura Farrow, who has a show coming up soon in Hillsborough at Cuppa Joe. I went last year and basically had to stand in line to buy one and they lasted about 15 minutes. It was like a feeding frenzy, I literally had a woman snatch one right out of my hand! So get there early if you want one, They are so great! Wesley took her Laura cup off to school with her.
Here's Laura working in her studio which is just visual steroids. I'm always so inspired when I leave there!

You can check out Laura's blog for more info on cups and paintings and shows here.
I also wanted to mention a new blog by Maureen Gaurde, whom I have mentioned here before during the raku workshops I did last fall. Maureen had great success that day and just made the day a whole bunch of fun. Anyway, she has a little write up about me on her blog that is very flattering, thanks Maureen for your very kind words. Her blog is about a great support group here in Chapel Hill. Here is a description of the group I took from the blog:

Welcome to Women Starting Over After 50. WSO50 is a North Carolina non-profit organization dedicated to education and support of women in transition. WSO50 was founded in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, by Donna Nelson and Noelle Randall. WSO50 is about change, it’s about growth, it’s about finding your passion once again. Some of you are single, some of you are married, some of you are empty nesters and some of you have never had children. Some of you have a working history, and some of you have never taken that path. But we all have one thing in common…We are wonderful women 50 and beyond and starting our journey for the second half of our lives.

So, go on over and check it out if you are interested.

Well, that's it, Gerry survived the storm and will be shooting clean up tomorrow, Wes is too busy for a visit tomorrow so I plan to work out in my studio until the heat and humidity cause me to pass out :)
