Gotta Have Music in the Studio

Do you listen to music while you work? I have to have the tunes crankin' while I am playing in the studio! Ipod (love my Touch) , Pandora, CD's ...anything but traditional radio. Today was Pandora on the Dave Mathews Band station. This station button would wear out if it were not virtual. Then, I switched to the Bonnie Raitt station which covers Susan Tedeschi to Norah Jones...la la la ... keeps me floating while my hands are working.

MUG MONDAY - Just the Mugs Please!



I have collected mugs for about 20 years at arts festivals...mostly in trade...lucky me! I have been trying to figure out a weekly themed blog and decided I should go with my passion for handcrafted MUGS!

I am anxious to see what turns up in my favorite category of earthenware!
This idea came from one of my favorite blogs

Milton Harvestfest 5K

 
Nick and I did the Milton Harvestfest 5k for fun with Suzette! It was a beautiful cool, sunny morning and a flat course. Although we girls couldn't keep up with Nick, we had a good run!
Suzette is training for the Army 10 Miler. This was her first race ever and I was so happy she invited us to do it together. Nick and I are preparing for the Run for the Diamonds in Berwick. This one is a 9 miler with a 2 mile hill...yippee, I love hills! Thanksgiving morning couldn't be more fun than with the crazy folks from Oregon East Running Club and the huge turnout in Berwick to support the 1200 plus runners. I can't wait...it's my favorite!

ArtFire Kiosk for Facebook

ArtFire made it too tempting...the new kiosk for Facebook that is. I am totally excited about the new features added by ArtFire! This year I have been spending time working on my website, learning about social networking, blogging and handmade marketplaces. Originally, I went with Etsy because it's established. Last week with the introduction of the kiosk it was apparent, that Etsy has some competition with new and very practical applications for online sellers like me. So, although I don't want to spread too thin... I had to dive in to explore.
It will be hard to keep myself from working on my online shop tomorrow. The to do list for Wild Winds this weekend is still quite long. Plus, there are a couple of orders to take care of before I head out of Dodge??? Discipline......hope I can dig some up :)
