color scheme generators!

i cannot speak more highly of color scheme generators for my design work!

i started with wellstyled (now color scheme designer) and now i incorporate a few more when i'm working (here's a great LIST of more)

COLORHUNTER is awesome...this one is a bit different because you can search via words (blue, cookie, summer, crisp, etc) or import a snippet of a photo that you're working on or are color inspired by and it was chew up and spit out a hex code for you to place into whichever program you're designing in

the 80s are back!

well, it appears as though the 80s are making a comeback this year. all the catalogs i've read through appear to follow this trend.

not sure on it however.

great music. interesting art. but some of the fashion can stay in the 80s!

on the clay front, i'm still working on the cast pieces. my studio is in a state of flux and it may be relocating to the next town over. will keep this info updated as it progresses.

keep on artin'!

new line coming

well, i have a new line coming soon...sort of a new take on the kitsch...kitsch mod perhaps? going to be loading up the kiln hopefully this weekend (pieces are still a wee bit damp, so depends on that)

new thrown pieces as well. revving up a bit. placed an ad in hagerstown magazine so here's hoping for a good turn out...i love that magazine and thought it would match my site/work

still obsessing over photoshop brushes.

and birds.

i'm obsessed with them at the moment in design.

i literally just found this rug on urban outfitters and it made me so happy my toes curled lol

and i LOVE this new photoshop brush

it's SO cool :D

must. stop. downloading. brushes

*looks to dafont instead*

the spring thaw has arrived!!!

you know what that means???

the kilns are ready to roll again!

typically i close up the clay shop over the coldest months of winter due to, well, lack of heat...but now the thaw is here, the buds are on the trees and the clay shop is revving up again!

this week i made 4 sets of bowls, some utensil holders and some "odds and ends"...wall plaques, etc. and let me tell ya, it feels good to be in the mud again :D

jewelry making has been productive as well...lots of ceramic tile bits necklaces were made...i made some earrings as well, but didn't like how they i'll post those later

check out the new updates:


and i almost forgot...i changed up the look of the site....made everything a happy light blue color...much more uniform which made me so much happier!

enjoy the blossoms, all!!!!!
