back to back

is the story of our little kiln.  4 glaze firings in 2 weeks, pfhew.  I can't tell you how happy it makes me to be creating so many wonderful things!!  that are going out into the world and becoming part of people's homes, cupboards, moments, morning rituals... It really is something that makes me so happy to think about.  and I can't tell you how thankful I am to be passionate about what i get to do every day, makes life wonderful. 

that said, we had a super time at our lil holiday show in Greeley last weekend.  This fantastic lady did an amazing job putting it on and getting the community out!!  Jared and I had a fun day together, Ate DP dough cookies (warm and melty out of the oven), saw old friends!!, and sweet ones that came out to support us (Thank you!), and picked out some extra special gifts.. I can't wait to give them :) 

Display is in tip top shape, all lighted up and ready for Applewood this weekend!!!  I have heard nothing but great things about this show (and its' size) and I'm really excited!  Visit their website for all the info Here...

Until then I'll be getting jared's custom order out the door (the glazes and designs came out perfect!), and organizing/pricing all the new cuties coming out of the kiln :) 

I'm so thankful for Jared, and all of his help.  His weeks are long and hectic with school, parent teacher conferences, and basketball yet, he's still giving up his weekends to come help with shows :)  How I love him, and his heart of gold. 
Jared and I decided we need a netflix account, which has me dreaming of my que and all the flicks i've been wanting to see.  perfect timing if you ask me... I'm about through our DVD collection since putting the old tv in the studio!  (and been through the entire series of BigBang theory thanks to Shanda and Chad)  what better way to spend cold winter evenings??  I'm really excited :)  

hugs & love

Our belated halloween

Late halloween is the best ever!  We originally moved it back a weekend so all our friends would be in town and able to come, but turns out... party prepping when everything is 75% off is amazing!!!  We got some fun decorations, made sweet cupcakes, and I had some fun homemade pumpkins too :)

 getting crafty with modpoge & paper is good for the soul :)  and also meant no gross pumpkin guts!  
 Jared and I made our costume from thrift store finds this year, we were Jesse & James of Team Rocket!!  pokemon villans :) 

yup, I painted my hair for the night!! 
 Scott & Amanda were hippies
Zach & Nicole
Batman & eskimo Princess
Jordie aka Ash Catchem
(also a pokemon character)

Fun fun night & I think we might try and snag a fog machine for next year!! yea! 

I had a 9 hour shift today at Kenny's.. which was a fun time with all the regulars that come in on wednesday :)  gotta say i'm pretty beat and looking forward to getting into bed :)  

Only 3 more days until our first Holiday show of the season!!  Come and See us Sat. Nov 12 @ the Atlas theater, Greeley from 9-4.  It is a fun cozy show with live music, treats & drinks, and over 40 colorado artists.  I love the theme they are tagging for this show "Occupy the holidays"

I'm so excited to deck the halls!!  And get a lil christmas shopping done early too.  maybe we will see you this weekend :) 

hugs & love

First Home Game of the Season

Last Thursday was Jared's first home game!  I was so excited to see his boys play, and one year later they were looking pretty fantastic.  They ran their plays really well (and made the baskets too!) and ran different defenses while the other team tried to break through - I was impressed with how far they have come :)  It was close in score through the whole game, and on the 2nd to last play the boys lost focus on defense and gave away the lead.  with 1.8 seconds left Jared gave them a inbound play and they almost got a shot off before the buzzer.  SO close.  

It is frustrating to watch them come so close to a win!  But as long as they are having fun, that's all that matters.  even though winning feels pretty awesome :)  

It's so great to see Jared coaching, he does a great job with the boys and you can tell they all love him.  watching them play made me realize the small hole the nba has left in our lives... *sniffle* i miss our nuggets!!  but life goes on, and jared and I think we'll be watching more college ball this season :)

Anyway, i'm happy i got to watch this game.  since i won't be making it to any of his games this week... my work shifts are pretty identical to the game schedule, bummer.  because it was so fun to watch!!

hugs & love
