Shop Update: 9/8/2011

I thought I should update you on my shop, I've been talking about a lot of other things recently and I am sure... well hoping, that you want an update.

What has happened:
I have made 3 sales since stocking my store! I know that isn't a lot, but considering how I have not posted many items, it is very exciting to me. I have learned a lot about how Etsy works, and it is true that you cannot fully learn about it until you dive in. I have made many friends on Etsy and made some connections I hope to keep. The Etsy community has opened up and welcomed me in, I am thankful to all of them.

What the shop is currently:
Currently I have 6 silk scarves up for sale and 1 set of mini domino earrings. I have several sets of these earrings, but I think it would be rude if I posted all of the same item up on Etsy, I will just wait for these to sell.

What is to come:
MY CHICKENS! As soon as the show is finished I plan to put my chickens and other ceramic work up. I have a ton of items, I just can't post them until I go through everything and weigh it for the post office... agh, that does not sound fun.

Thanks for putting up with me.

I got screwed over

So as many of you know I recently went through hurricane Irene. My apartment is safer than most so we had a few people here to stay safe. My roommate, who I am VERY good friends with, knew a couple people who were stuck with no where to stay so we both said they could stay with us for a day. (They lived over an hour away) They stayed in our living room and spent the night. I kept my door locked the entire time they were there.

They ate my food

They left my apartment a mess

Broke my aquarium thermometer

Had sex on my sheets when both were dating other people


They left the cases and took all of the disks. I didn't realize until today because my boyfriend had taken the cases into my room to keep safe. I assumed he checked the cases because at the time I was in the bathroom feeling very sick. I was cleaning today and was moving them back to the living room when I noticed.

I normally trust people, I am not blindingly trusting, but I tend to think people are generally good. I don't want to loose this view.

I just had to get that all out. Thank you for listening.

I'm working on a HUGE project for my upcoming show in the beginning of October. The show is called One-Hundred. It features a group of ceramic objects that have been multiplied by 100. I am mainly a ceramic artist based in tile works, but I like to dabble in everything.

The part I am working on now is chickens. I made a mold of one chicken and have to make this chicken 100 times. It takes me about 30 mins per chicken, and I am only at number 18/100. I feel like I am going chicken CRAZY! I need to finish this by the gallery date.
