Taking a Break…


It has been a busy, busy couple of weeks and I am pleasantly exhausted! In addition to having classes every week night, there are kids classes Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Last week on Thursday No Limits “kids” did 17 lighted ceramic Christmas trees which are fired, wired,  and boxed up ready to deliver on Monday. Then on Friday Bonnie’s Bunch homeschool group did 10 silkscreened Santa plates. Half are in the kiln and the other half go in the kiln today so they will be ready for pickup on Monday.

This week on Tuesday we had Rusnak’s Girl Scout Troop, ten girls and two leaders, so that makes 12 more lighted trees. Their trees are out of the kiln and waiting to be wired. On Wednesday we had Hodder’s homeschool group who did another 9 trees. They are waiting their turn to go into the kiln which is expected to be today.

We also had 9 at the Christmas Tree Tuesday workshop (mostly larger trees) and 4 kids for the Kids Christmas tree workshop.

Several of our new and regular students are adding Mother-of-Pearl to their tree. This gives a white tree a shimmery, pearly finish that is beautiful. Because it is an overglaze and requires a third firing, there is an extra charge for MOP.

clipart-turkey-dinnerTomorrow is our Family Thanksgiving Celebration. Then it is back to work for the holiday season. We will have Open Classes every evening at 7:00. Please make sure that you let me know when you are coming. I am not expecting anyone on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday because of the holiday. However, we are available if you want to come.
