I didn’t take a picture on Thursday; I thought about it a couple of times but all I was doing was wrapping soap, and I’d think about how to artfully arrange my work to get a pretty picture and then I’d get sidetracked. So then I didn’t put up a post yesterday about what I did on Thursday, because, well, “worked a lot and forgot to take a picture” pretty much sums it up. Except that I did go to knitting on Thursday night and got to hang with Mariana and Sonya, and Diane swung by to pick up an order and it was great to see her and reconnect (and her daughter C., who I first met when she was… five? six? IS SO TALL! And gorgeous, and tough as shit, but that’s a given, if you know Diane.) ANYWAY. So here’s my photo from Friday, when I mixed up the hand-lotion base I’ll be using. I’ve got it now divided into the four initial fragrances I’ll be using (do you want to know now? Or be surprised in a few weeks?) and while I don’t have any in the small bottles yet, I’ve gotten a lot farther than I was in having it ready.
Remember how I was talking the other week about my love for cuckoo clocks? And some of you may know I also have a love for really intricate gingerbread houses. So how about an Edible Gingerbread Cuckoo clock?! I KNOW RIGHT?!?!? I just peed a little.
I also just banged my head into the wall a little, because I opened the kiln and a custom piece that I’ve made four times now didn’t turn out. Fuckity fuck fuck fuck!!!!
And on that note, I think I’m going to go pour some ceramics, clean my ceramic studio, and maybe finish up the audio book I’m listening to.
