a beautiful day...and a nice surprise...
what an absolutely gorgeous day...it's days like today that can almost make you forget what it's like to live in nc in august. (well, almost!) things are moving along with the move to hillsborough, and i will hopefully have some photos to post very soon...
i got a wonderful surprise yesterday...my friend and amazing potter, jen mecca, nominated me for the stylish blogger award. kind of funny, and a little embarrassing, since my blog is still really in the beginning stages, but i'm thrilled she thought of me. and, hopefully this will give me the motivation to blog more regularly... so, anyway, here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award being by providing a link to their site.
2. Share 7 things about yourself that other bloggers might not know.
3. Give the Award to 15 newly discovered or interesting blogs.
4. Notify each of those blogger to present the Award.
okay, the hard part...7 things about me that you probably wouldn't know...i've really enjoyed reading everyone else's answers, but this is hard!!! here goes:
1: i was born in honolulu...my dad was in the navy, and i lived there for the first year and a half of my life. i haven't been back yet, but i'd definitely love to get there one of these days...
2: when i'm tired, stressed out, or sick, my number one comfort food is french fries. i've been that way since i was a little girl--i can remember my mom letting me have french fries with a ton of ketchup whenever i was sick. and no undercooked fries for me, either--i like them crunchy, not burnt, but well done.
3: i have absolutely no musical talent...i mean NONE...but, i've always wanted to learn to play the fiddle. i'm talking in a kick-butt, dixie chicks sort of way...
4: i hoard paint swatches--i could spend hours in front of the swatches at lowes or home depot, looking at colors. i have stacks and stacks of them at home--i don't know what it is, but i love holding all those colors, and looking at the subtle differences between them. i guess it's the same with glazes--my favorite part of working with clay is seeing how the glazes come out and interact with each other.
okay, i think i'm going to split this into two posts, that's a lot of sharing for one post...i'll work on the other 3 things in my head today. hopefully i'll get some pics of the new space to post later on...happy friday!!!
