......not a creature was stirring except me, at 3am. Ugh, insomnia is back and I have been roaming around the house since 3am. I checked in on my email and found a pleasant surprise. My little Frozen Charlotte barn has sold. I am so happy to see this going to a nice new home, although I will miss it a lot. The shelves in my studio are nearly bare, I have sold almost everything. Thanks so much to everyone that has purchased from me this year. It feeds my soul, you know!
Saying goodbye to a few old friends. Along with Frozen Charlotte these other pieces sold this week.
I think these barns have been waiting for me to be ready to let them go, and I am, and they went.
I woke up with my head full of ideas for clay! I can't tell you how long its been since that happened. I think realizing how my friend Susan set an intention and made it happen has sparked a new excitement for clay. I looked up some shows that are coming up for spring and I have a tiny spark of an idea for a gallery show..... I'm thinking about some wall pieces and some new smoke fired works, and adding some hearts and angels that were given to me during the tour to a few pieces. Too cold to work in my studio for a little while yet, so maybe I'll spend some time thinking while I'm on the loom or making bracelets. Winter hibernation and planning for a new year sounds mighty fine to me right now!
Wishing all of you the happiest of holidays this year. We have lots of presents under the tree, friends promising to come by, Christmas cards coming in from family and friends we don't often see, Christmas tins filled with candies and cookies, candles burning brightly, Christmas lights twinkling, my cat curled up here in the chair beside me as I sip a hot cider and say a quick hello before tomorrow. So, a very Merry Christmas to all of you, hope all your wishes come true!
