But look at that grin...I'd do anything to see that!
Finished product!! We ate too much but once in a long while won't hurt us!
On top of the funnel cake, I tried a new shortbread recipe. Very easy and it made yummy triangular cookies using a cookie mold I never have used. It even has a thistle imprinted on it.
Can you see it above the bite mark? :)

The next thing are some Welcome Signs. It looks like they have been a big hit this year so I created three more for my shop and the pottery sale at Roberson.

I am currently working on two separate shows in the next few weekends. First of all starting tomorrow night (Tuesday) we will be having our annual pottery show at Roberson Museum and Science Center. Directions are pretty easy for all you locals who might want to come. It is a great show with some wonderful potters including my fellow artist friend, Nancy http://therabbitmuse.blogspot.com/. I just checked out her table at the show and she had some incredible jewelry for sale. I will be setting up my table hopefully tonight. The show runs tomorrow night from 5-8PM and then the next three weekends in a row. Look above for the dates and times.

He is the newest addition to our clan. He is a Panda Bear Hamster and is approx. one month old, although he is quite large. Graydon fell in love with him on Friday night before we went to the movies. He was the only one left in the cage and he was quite entertaining to watch. He collected some money from doing jobs for us and Grandma and Grandpa, went to the store on Saturday night and got him.
He is very timid around our hands but hopefully he'll warm up so we can hold him.
I think Todd even likes Louie!
On another note, yesterday was actually a little productive. We cleaned out the top part of our barn where the barn sale was. Put most of everything (art) down to the little house for the upcoming sale, took all the patio furniture and put it away. Then I came inside because it was pretty chilly out and made 2 Tree of Life tiles, a small platter, cut my soap I made and got somethings painted. I have to work at the studio this morning, then to the market, home, make dinner, get a couple of things done, Graydon will be home, eat, get him ready for soccer practice and then I have to work tonight as well. Busy, busy for me!!!
Have a good Monday everyone!

Here is the emulsion blender working hard. I nearly cut the tip of my finger off with this thing.
This photo shows some of my supplies. A Snapple box worked great as a mold...line it with saran wrap and we are good to go.
A ruler to measure the bars after and my instructions...
