In a Holi-Daze

Posted by on Dec 28, 2011 in About Me, Holiday | 4 comments

Christmas is over – but I am still celebrating.  I am always loathe to abruptly cease the celebration.  Since I struggle with transitions, I tend to drag them out so I can soften the stark contrast of change.  I am still lighting the tree, watching holiday movies that I recorded, and working on the Christmas Eve jig saw puzzle.

Although I am back to work at my day job, I have not gotten much done in the studio.  We began a plate project but it is nice to slow the pace down.  After-all, there is still much merry-making to be done…


  1. I am so thrilled to have a blog to read! Thanks, I love the crackle mugs! I bought some sodium silicate so I can try it for myself. I’ll have to let you know how it turns out. I am still lighting my tree and enjoying Christmasy things. To me Christmas items can go a few weeks into January. I took your much earlier suggestion about Clary Illian’s workbook and bought it off of Amazon, I think it will be fun to work through some of the projects in the coming new year. Barbara and Lynette are pushing me to name my pottery resolutions, I haven’t quite come up with one yet, thrown a few around, but we’ll see what I come up with. Enjoy the lull, you deserve a restful break!

  2. Thanks for checking in with the blog! I hope your time off is restful – it seemed like last semester was a bit hard on you (being sick and working on the on-line class). I am working on my resolutions but I usually don’t settle on them until mid January. I can’t wait to hear what everyone is planning to work on in the studio next year. One of your resolutions could be to work through the Illian book. I always thought that would be a fun book to work through with a group.

  3. :) happy like Rebecca for a blog… especially during our break from pottery. I am glad I am not alone in my resolve to let Christmas linger. We rush and rush and rush… and then poof it’s over. Our lights are still on… I still have my scentsy warmer filled with Christmas tree scent and I am in no hurry to change that scenario.

    Ok… did not know that you’re a puzzle person. What kind of puzzle… how many pieces… what kind do you like to do…all that kind of jazz. I love jigsaw puzzles!! Speaking of pieces… I miss you to pieces!!!

  4. We start a puzzle on Christmas Eve – always a winter or Christmas theme. 500-1000 pieces. This year we are working on a 550 piece puzzle by William Mangnum. He is an NC artist who has been donating a picture for the past few years to the Homeless Shelter. They use the picture on their honor cards (Christmas cards sold as a fund raiser). I buy the cards each year and last year I got this puzzle.

    Hope you are relaxing – you earned it after your whirlwind of production!
