i’m moving soon, but i don’t know where. i have super-high expectations for where i see myself and my creative profession, and i’m mad at myself for not being there already (which i know is very silly). i know i have some new and exciting things in store for me, and i’m getting a little bit restless in the meantime. i’ve never been one for surprises . . . i like knowing what is going to happen next!
but for now, i’ll stay calm and quiet and be thankful.
this is the firing shed out at work. its quiet this week, and that’s exactly what i need.
oh my gosh, its february 29th! that doesn’t happen too often! i hope you are enjoying this extra day in february.
you could serve anything up on this beautiful tray. maria kristofersson’s ceramic pieces really inspire me. i love the subtle imperfections . . . and the handmade feel of the platter. i’d love to serve up a cup of tea to a friend who love the handmade goods as much as i do.
i love seinfeld. its got to be one of my all-time favorite shows! so when i found these seinfood posters from the san francisco based kitchenwares store, pot + pan. created by the artist rinee shah, they are subtle enough to still be enjoyable even if you’ve never seen the show. i love that!
a little bit of floral print goes a long way, but my world is lacking even just the tiniest bit of florals! i think i’ve got to fix this! this floral rug could really help out.
i can feel that i’m getting closer to finding my career path. i’m not exactly sure how to verbalize what it is i want to do with my life, but i can tell you that lately it is all i can think about. i feel that by continuing to blog and put effort into making and selling my ceramics, that i am getting one step closer to finding exactly what i want to do. things are on the up & up!
the old & fancy light in my bedroom.
i always find great things on etsy that have already sold. bummer! they get to exist in someone else’s collection . . . i should act faster next time.

i like that all of these dining chairs don’t match. and the cushions are all a little different too. just my kind of comfortable living area.
yesterday i was a pretty lazy human being. it felt good, but not as good as it feels to accomplish something big. i promise to do a little more than just exist today . . .
all i can think about these days are getting some professional-looking business cards. i need something that i can hand out to people who are interested in what i do. working part-time at a small deli here in town has me meeting a lot of people, and some people are truly interested in seeing what i do! its time to start handing them something other than a coaster with my website scratched across it . . . here are some that have me wanting my own, like now!
i love the brightly colored edges on this one!
i’m starting to warm up to the idea of a non-traditional shape . . . square perhaps?
and then i’m reminded of my friend kaley’s business cards. they are stunning! the rounded corners, the matte finish . . . paired with her photographs, its just perfect. (on this particular card is my friend samantha and her tiny baby willa!) i might have to take the route she took, designing my own cards from moo! hmm, lots to think about!
