Deep Breaths

For the past few days I've been really bad about taking the time to comment on my friends blogs.  Honestly, I've really mostly been skimming them to see what my friends are doing then I'm off running around in a completely different direction.  I feel a bit like a chicken with my head cut off.  I suppose we all have felt like that a few times in our lives and we know that we will get a handle on things and settle down again.  I actually like the adrenalin a little but it is draining.

I've been making pots for the holiday shows and orders.  That feels the least stressful and I'm really glad that I have that to center me (pun intended).  I will have work in Art Visions Fine Art and Crafts Show at Paideia School here in Atlanta.  It's an easy show because volunteers turn the gym area into a fantastic art gallery, they also take care of all the sales, I just pick out the pieces that I want to send, make the price tags and inventory sheets, pack everything and bring it there.

I'm also preparing for my studio sale which I've moved to the weekend after Thanksgiving.  That's a lot more work because I'm doing all the advertising, making, mowing, cleaning, and everything else that goes into the open studio and sale.  Well, Janet's making the cookies, she is an awesome baker and will do a much better job with them then I ever could.

Today we have to take our dog Jolie back the the vet to have her knee looked at and then we head down to the airport to pick up Janet's parents who are visiting for a few days.  It'll be good to see them and to take a little break from working so much.  Of course I've worked into our plans to go to Art Visions to see the show and to go up to Shorter University to pick up the pots from the wood kiln.

I have only 4 pots left in my Etsy Store.  I'm not sure when I'll find time to take pictures and post new work but you know I will have to do it and soon. So if I don't communicate with you for a few days don't think I'm not here, I am, I'm just being a little crazy.
