my glamorous life

hi-
summer is officially over.  i can scarce believe it!
thank you to everyone who kindly visited our booth at the variety of venues we attended.  i must say, my 15th show season brought us face to face with some harsh realities......like, we have become 'senior members' of the circuit and i probably won't be able to do this forever. 
i remember my first year when fellow ceramicist John Benn encouraged Perry and I to 'put away some money' when we could.  we looked at each other and shrugged.....hahaha, the money will certainly continue to roll in ... and in a blink of my contact lenses, we have arrived at that place where we need to think about a strategy!
 
i still love the pots.  i especially love the folks we interact with.  still.....my plan is to do fewer shows next year and bring only irresistibles with me to the ones i do attend.  i'm actually pretty excited about it. 
for those of you who have been collecting, i'm NOT quitting.  the brushes will need to be pryed out of my cold hands.  i'm just taking a moment to collect my thoughts about how to best proceed.  perhaps i shouldn't have said anything.  let's carry on, business as usual.  ok?

today, literally i am wearing all the hats.  Perry has pneumonia and there are orders to fill!  i caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and had to take a snapshot of my glamorous life. i'm giggling.
