Road blocks, Mister Rogers and a future guest blogger

On Thursday evening, I got an email from a neighborhood newsletter letting residents know that there was going to be emergency road work being done right outside my studio on Friday and Saturday and the road would be closed… the exact two days of my sale. Luckily, I was able to send out an email giving folks a warning about the big orange signs, let them know about some alternate directions.

The road blocks did not deter anyone. The sale was a huge success and my shelves are now pretty sparse. It’s always great to see my regular customers and old friends. Thanks to everyone who navigated the detours and came out last weekend!

The road blocks were only a little bit of an inconvenience… Nancy and Burt had to deal with a tornado at the Kalamazoo Art Fair! It’s a good reminder why I prefer studio sales over art fairs.


I was watching Mister Rogers with my nephew, Ayrie, the other day and there was a nice surprise: Eva Kwong was the guest!


In case you missed it, check out this blog post from January about another surprise appearance by a potter.


And lastly… here is a picture of Ian…


The thing that is interesting about this picture to those of us who know him is that in this photo he has no beard and has short hair! Ian and I are approaching our 13th year together, and this is literally the first time I’ve seen his chin! Ian usually has longish hair and a very full beard. I’m posting this picture for our friends and family across the country that won’t get to see this in person… It’s not going to last long!

Although Ian is a programmer who writes a blog that most of us don’t really understand, he will be taking a turn writing a guest post for this blog sometime over the next week or two. I can’t wait to read it!
