Saw this idea online and loved it! Tremendous thanks to all of our postal carriers who have picked up and delivered thousands of packages to and from our home this year. We are so thankful to have such reliable service.

It's perfect sculpting weather today and I'm loving being outside with my clay. The sound track to today's creations is full of cicadas, wind chimes, and bird song. Beautiful!

Things Dana Loves: Working from home! I tend to navigate around my house week to week and sculpt in different places. I find it keeps me fresh and offers a bit of variance. This week's big batch of sculptures were born in my living room.

Half way through Spring break! My girls are on vacation but I'm not so today's adventures in sculpting have me working away at the public library while my kiddos do their thing here. I love sculpting at the library, it's so quiet and peaceful!

My assistant has been on vacation and is coming back tomorrow! I am so happy to have her in the shop again to help me with this big glaze batch. Abby is wonderful, she puts such care into helping me bring my sculptures through the creation process.

Getting some beautiful butterfly baubles ready for shipment. They are selling out quickly but will be back again next year. For now, you still have a chance to hang one on the tree this year until they are officially sold out.
