Some weeks it is hard to narrow down what it is that made me happy as so much in life does. So here are my two favourites for the week.
I got the opportunity to 'play with clay' a week ago and play I did. Such a satisfying thing to do, getting a block of clay and pounding it on the bench to soften it before creating. I had an idea, quite a fishy one at that.
Once my fish were made they had to take a few days to dry naturally. Then I went back to choose colours before they were put into one of Dawns kilns to cook. Once they were done cooking at incredibly high temps, I went back to do a black wash over my colours and then put the final glaze, the one that makes them shiny!!
I am so stoked with how they all turned out
and of course some of them
have made it to that
Wall of Whimsy.
Then today TOF and I (who by the way is doing really well) went for a drive to see some friends of ours in the country whose beautiful cat gave birth to 7 adorable kittens a few weeks back.
OMG SOOOOOO CUTE!!!!!!
Why does anything in it's baby state makes you just go all smooshy and silly. I could have quite easily run off with at least 3 or 4 of these adorable bundles of fluff, but with great restraint and that certain look from TOF, photos were enough.
JUST A THOUGHT
