my new kitchen isn’t anything to write about in a design magazine, but it has a lot of the things i wanted. a window over the sink, great light, a dishwasher (!!!), and no more carpet!!! (who puts carpet in a kitchen?!)
the only thing i could really use is a little window sill or a shelf under that perfect kitchen window for all of my little knick knacks and a little ceramic dish for rings, oh and flowers of course and maybe a little succulent or two….ooooh luuuuke!
about a month ago, i took an alt summit online course about blogging, and in my class were 3 lovely kansas ladies, one of which i knew from college! such a small world! so, rachael, deanna, laura and i decided to meet up in real time this afternoon at little freshie in kansas city and had the most delightful hour full of great stories and lots of laughing! these ladies are a real treat. and i love how we all met in that very same class. what a wonderful world!
and yes, that is the pineapple serrano soda that i was gushing over yesterday. makes my mouth water just thinking about it!
thanks for a great afternoon ladies! let’s do it again soon! xo
to recollect my thoughts, meet-up with family and visit with friends, and run as many errands as i can fit in!
i get that giddy feeling when i go home. especially with views such as this one. i’m boppin’ all over kansas city this weekend trying to squeeze in as much of my ‘home’ as i can before i permanently head on west to wichita. i still get the best greetings from my parents when i come home. (treated like a guest when i go back to the house i grew up in!) it might be a bit harder to leave this time!
so, good thoughts, eh? i suppose i can give that a try. even though i’m sitting here as an unemployed little girl.
or at least that’s how i feel. like a lost little girl! when did i grow up, and how did things get so complicated?
for the first time since i was 14 i am unemployed and i’ll be honest, i’m feeling very lost and quite afraid. i was a roller-skating carhop at age 14, and right now that is sounding pretty good, seeing as how they get paychecks.
but everything is going to be a-okay. i’m going to have positive thoughts and everything is going to appear to be just lovely! and tomorrow i’m headed to little freshie in kansas city for the first time! gosh, i’m dying to try that fresh pineapple and serrano pepper soda . . . oh yeah, you heard me right!
i hope you squeeze in something fun this weekend. my dad is coming in town today and i can’t wait to spend the afternoon with him. happy friday everyone!

there are so many things going on in my mind these days. and in luke and i’s lives.
and a lot of worrying.
i really don’t feel like i can adequately express it all here. not yet at least. but eventually i can let you all in on some of the challenges and changes that are presenting themselves at this moment. its all just a bit scary and unsettling, but as usual – the world will keep turning and i will move forward.

today was pretty nice. i spent the entire day working in the studio. so today was actually a perfect day. i woke up, had coffee (because i’m back on coffee again) and hopped to it at the wheel. i made 16 new pieces today. a dirty success. and i’ve finished making my largest special order! its on to glazing now!
and have i mentioned how much i hate searching for jobs? i try to keep this place all positive, and i focus on promoting the things i love instead of bashing the things i hate, but right now i need to use that hate-word and get some feelings off of my chest.
things are going to be ok. they are. but it might take a little while…
it is such a quiet Sunday, one of the first ones where I don’t know what to do with myself! getting the house packed up is not one of the ways I want to spend the day, so I’ve decided a long bike ride and some afternoon drinks with friends sounds a whole heck of a lot better. I hope you have a perfect Sunday.
hey, its the weekend! and its summer! i hope you’re staying cool and you plan on doing something fun. i’m stuffing my face with strawberries – i hope they last through the weekend!
selling my work is such a rewarding feeling. i can’t begin to tell you how happy i get when i send those boxes off. i’m feeling all sorts of lucky that i get to do what i do, even if right now it isn’t very profitable, and doesn’t happen very often.
many thanks to all of my supporters out there. you have no idea how good it feels to me.
