12 Days to Christmas

In the Studio

Open Classes Monday December 14th and 21st, Wednesday the 16th and 23rd. Any other afternoon or evening by appointment. Let’s get those Christmas gifts finished!

THIS MONDAY (tomorrow, 12/14) we are painting clear glass Christmas tree ornaments. If you are caught up on everything else, come and join us. $2.00 each. We also have lots of ceramic ornaments in the craft drawers that you can take home and paint. Why not make a special hand-painted ornament for everyone on your Christmas list!

Mail Orders

We are making progress here with almost all of the orders mailed out. We took packages to USPS on Friday and to FedEx on Saturday. All of those people have received tracking information on their shipments. We still have to finish two extra-large horses, a jazz band, several pair of naughty turtles, a bench for sitters, two more trees, and some angels. Promised to get these all out for Christmas!

Christmas Gifts

Personal gifts are all done and wrapped, including some purchased on Amazon for Jeremy.

Jeremy is making something for the family, too. Got those poured and half of them fired and ready to paint. Don’t want to give away the surprise but I think they will be liked.

Christmas cards went out to family a couple weeks ago and over a hundred more cards are ready to mail to students, ceramic friends, and customers. We included a special coupon to be used in January or February 2021.

Celebrating

Baking still needs to be done — Christmas breads and cookies.

Decorating still needs to be done — trees and everything else is in the shed and needs to be brought in. We probably won’t use everything this year — can always find some neat lit up ceramic trees in the Studio like we did last year!

It’s not too late

…to come paint some ornaments

…to put together a to-go basket with bisque, brushes, and paints

…to purchase gift certificates for lessons, bisque, or finished pieces
