A belated Happy New Year!

I was more than a bit shocked when I noticed my last entry - mid December 2008! I would like to offer lots of excuses, but I suspect that the real reason was me just not having a lot of energy. this last week my body finally orchestrated a mini revolt and declared itself sick. My immune system went off somewhere nice and fancy and left the back door wide open for bugs. As a result I have been coughing and spluttering till the wee hours of the morning, sleeping in bouts of strange nightmarish places.

My lungs is behaving a bit better, the gaggas in my nasal passages seemed to be leaving and the absolute fatigue that has been plaguing me since new year seems to be disappearing.

Good news is that I will receive my first batch of fired ceramics tomorrow! Just some teacups and sugar bowls. I have been a bit tardy with the milk mugs and they will start their firing process tomorrow. Except for the pitchers that I played with last year, this will be the real fire walk for me. Will my head pictures work? All the what ifs will either come true tomorrow, or be dispelled to Lala land forever. We have not started on modelling any saucers or cake plates, as I first wanted to see how the tea cup's shape is altered by the beaded handle. At a later stage I would like to add a beaded lid to the sugar bowl. And of course the Tea Pot! I have already made some beads for the first one!

And not least: I hope that you all have the bestest of best year ahead of you! May all your wishes come true, may your path be an easy one, your health excellent and your purse full!

Finally, I have finally tried going BIG, lol. Please find the link to my new Art Fire shop. I will be adding more goodies in the next few days!
