From the Workshop...

Whew! I think I can breath out and relax a little now! The past month has been a very busy time for me. I've been busy creating tiles for custom orders and trying to keep up with school stuff too. But I'm almost finished with the custom orders! Not quite, but I'm too the point that I'm pretty sure that it will get done in time for Christmas....short of an ice or storm storm that knocks the power out! Thank goodness, that is not very likely, here at least, for the next week! Anything is possible, but I don't believe we have any major storms in our forcast yet. January and February is usually the time that we have more winter weather.
I have been working on custom tiles of clay, like the one shown above. These two were done of the same house. I created the whole house first. The details were so small that I thought I would create it again, but closer to the house. I decided that I liked both just as much! So much for deciding after they were finished! I guess my customer liked both too, because she purchased the 2nd one too! But I did give her a discount. She was a good customer.
I've been to the post office and other errands today, taken photos of new mini houses from the kiln, and had a nap, so now I'm ready to go do more glazing. The kids are home for the holidays, so I have plenty to do this week....along with a good nap each day!
Hope you are having fun preparing for Christmas!


  1. Beth -- those tiles are absolutely beautiful! There is such charming and exquisite detail-work in them.

  2. They are gorgeous Beth. I wouldn't be able to choose either. Love then both.

    Good to hear that you manage a little nap to charge the batteries.

  3. Gorgeous tiles! Good luck with your deadlines, keep doing those naps and may you all have a very merry Christmas!!!

  4. Wow, all those details, Beth! Very nice work. Keep doing what you're doing. I'm inspired.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours! You are the BEST.

  5. Thank you! I appreciate you all stopping by my blog! You are all very sweet!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for stopping by!
