All Fired Up

All is not lost …

The berry bowl escapade is finished ... they went from over-fired cone 6 to somewhat cute, but what a rigamarole!  First I painted the darn things with just one coat of underglaze and warmed them in the oven.  (You heard all about that!) Now they've been...

Sanity returns …

It happens every year at this time (tax time, that is).  My husband and I turn into lunatics getting stuff together for the tax return and then drive each other around the bend waiting to hear from the accountant about how much we'll have to ante up.  Things...
