Work in progress - SO MUCH CLAY!
I got so much marked off my huge list of things I want to try making today. That list is seriously diminished. I really am proud of myself, because I'm so freakin' ADD. It's really hard to keep throwing when I could be checking my facebook or eating a sandwich.
I did a teapot with a tealight warmer for it to sit on, a bunch of bowls, 3 bird bottles (colonial birdhouses that are bottle shaped - I'm a bit obsessed with these right now), and a juicer thingy (you know, to juice oranges. What do you call those things?)
Check out that longcat stamp! I think it's the crappiest looking cat ever, but I like it:D
Finally, while googling bird bottles so I can get a better understanding of exactly what features they need (how they hang, how big they are, etc), I found lots of ceramic birdhouses that were pretty sweet and well designed, and I also found these amazing ceramic lanterns. I wanted to make ceramic lanterns for my wedding so bad, but I just ran out of time and energy. If I had seen these back then, I think some other decorations would have been put aside.

Man, this entry is pic OBESE! Once again, would anyone like to join my cup swap? If you're a ceramic artist and you make cups, or you'd like to, just send me a message, and we will trade one of my cups for one of yours. I'll keep posting pics in progress - maybe once you guys see I don't make total crap, you'll be willing to swap.
