Slowly getting back

Last Saturday I had a little chunk of time in the studio (about and hour and a half) to try to get into the swing of things. It felt good to get back in there, but I didn't spend a whole lot of time creating yet. Mostly, the studio got tidied up and I killed (ok, admittedly I trapped and Brian killed) the biggest cockroach I've ever seen. I did get a couple of serving bowls started and hope to finish them today. The hardest part for me right now is not getting ahead of myself- meaning, I don't want to get over-motivated and start all sorts of pieces, only to have them dry too quickly because I can't get in there as often and as long as before.
We're having our 3rd annual Circle of Eight fall sale here in September, so that'll give me a deadline toward which to work. Yesterday Ron and I worked on the postcard and press release for the sale. It was good to work together to come up with what hopefully turned out to be a good design. The group is really trying to step up our exposure this time around, which is why we decided to do a press release. Maybe we'll get a little mention in a couple of publications around town.

I hear you! I'm still grabbing two hours here and two hours there, but it adds up to finished pieces... eventually... : )

The postcard looks great, but too small to read. I guess I'll just wait until I get mine in the mail. I'm looking for ward to it (the sale, not the postcard).

Hope you'll bring the baby. Or at least some pictures.

Welp Scott, I think Guthrie will most definitely make an appearance- the sale is at my house!
