Website Updated!

YAY!  I finally finished updating my website.  Ok, so the only thing is that it has to be re-directed from my old server, but HEY!  IT WORKS!! And it's SO MUCH nicer!  It also helps to have a Graphic Design person in your family. A little secret, I did most of it, but fudged on the background and fonts on purpose.  I admit it, I'm a Fine Artist, NOT a Graphic Design person.  I figured if I didn't do the greatest at the design, my daughter would feel sorry for me and fix it.  You know, kind of like I did as her mom while she was growing up?  hehe

Anyways, it's done.  I'm pretty happy with it.  There are just a few adjustments to go, and it will be even nicer.  She's given me homework. My kid has given me homework!  hahaha  I know she just loved doing that.  I'm to draw out a henna design.  It has to be just the right size, btw.  She'll be turning it into wallpaper for the background.

Once I'm finished focusing on this, I can jump right back into working on my pottery.  I have a few more ideas that I'd like to work on.  I tried out this idea I saw in one of my pottery magazines.  It's for a Travel Coffee Mug.  The first prototypes came out pretty nicely, but there was one casualty. The lid on one of them got jammed (we figured it was wedged in, and just stuck).  Not a big deal.  This just tells me what I need to work on when I throw more of them.

It's finally cooling off here a bit.  Plus, its now October. Of course this means we started decorating the house with all things Autumn, pumpkins, lights and fall leaves included.  And yes, the weather is cool enough to use my Cauldron Tea set, now.
