Winter Weather Activities

What to do while living in the polar vortex.  You can check the weather channel and discover that Anchorage, Alaska is warmer than Atlanta, GA.  You can bundle up then head out into the cold to blow bubbles.  That was fun.  I added a bit of corn syrup to the soap which was supposed to make stronger bubbles.  I'm not sure how well that worked.  The bubbles that did not pop on impact did freeze, then after a few minutes they started moving, it was like they were breathing.  Very cool, I highly recommend it.

It was too cold to work in the studio, the little space heater simply cannot keep up so I also messed around on the computer, updated my website a little, spent too much time on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest and added a few pieces to my Etsy Shop.  This is something I'm really terrible about doing.  I tend to do very, very little with my Etsy Shop then get really surprised when someone adds a pot to their favorites or buys something.  It also makes me really, really happy when that happens so I don't know why I don't spend more time with it.  I guess if I were to be the type to make New Years resolutions (and I'm not) keeping up with my Esty Shop would be the one for 2014.

Now it's warm enough to go back to the studio and make some more pots.  Yay!

What did you do during the extreme cold weather?  I hope you were keeping warm.

  1. I have gotten very little done in the studio and my excuse is the cold. I wait until the last minute to go out there and turn up the heat and light a fire in the wood stove. The we were dealing with the frozen water line issue and that was a giant time suck. Today is going to be a better day!

    1. Oh, I'd love a wood stove in the studio. Of course the water issue was a big deal for you all. Glad you got it fixed.

  2. Spent the night in Atlanta Sunday night on our way to Alabama, damn! it was cold!!! looking forward to those warm temps that are coming this week! No way I can work in my studio right now, just staying in, snug and warm. I should do the same with my Etsy shop, but I feel very much like you. Surprised and happy when I have a sale, but so slack on keeping up with it, ugh.... trying to sell work, my least favorite activity!

    1. Thanks Gary. I always wonder how you're making out when it's this cold. Lots of layers I guess. Stay warm my friend.
