My New Years Resolution

I usually...never make a New Years Resolution. I'm not sure why? As a matter of fact, I can't remember the last time I did! I guess it's because I'm not a planner. I tend to live in the moment...and go with the flow. But this year I've decided to make one for 2012.

Drum roll please!

 My New Years Resolution is to finish my book. I's a big one! But if I don't do this...I'll probably never finish it. You see...I tend to procrastinate where writing is concerned. Writing a novel is hard work for me, unlike pottery...which is very easy, and fun! Now don't get me wrong...making pottery is hard work...physically. But it's in my blood...I live, sleep and breathe it!

Writing on the other hand...does not come easy for me. I've had to stretch myself like never before. It's been quite a journey so far, and I've learned a lot about myself. I must say that I do like stretching myself...but I tend to do it kicking and screaming! When I started my book more than 7 years ago, I wasn't sure if I could do it. Then it became a challenge...and now I need to get my characters out of my head, and tell their story.

So...I figured if I wrote this down and sent it out into the Universe...that it would happen! I would finish my book...and hopefully get published.
I "WILL" finish my book!
There...I said it!

I better get busy!

I'm dreaming of a white christmas

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know

Making a snowman with my Dad!

My Mom checking it out!

Where the tree-tops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write

May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!

Coyote Glazes Part 2

I am really loving these glazes!

They're so easy to use...and they look great too!

This glaze looks so good on my Oak Leaves!
It's Leopard Shino...but I'm calling it Country Cream.
I'm definitely going to use this glaze again!

This one is glazed in Shino...but I call it Acorn.

Love these!

This is Light Blue Shino!



And last but not least...My Birdie Bowls in Light Blue Shino.

This definitely looks like Country Blue!


I'm really happy with these results! The firing was great!
No problems! Yay!
