Mention in Elaine Bradley's blog

Elaine Bradley is the type of person I hope everyone gets an opportunity to meet in their lifetime.

Down to earth, hilariously funny, with a wonderful way of describing technical ceramic terms. Plus that honest to god wealth of ceramic knowledge stored in that lovely Irish brain of hers.

In saying that, being a devoted stalker of her blog I was delighted to get a mention in it!

Please stalk, I mean check out:

For further stalking purposes (and if your not into being a 'follower' of blogs) here is her blog address so you can bookmark it. Go on, do it. You won't regret it.

Pretty out lovelies!

You gotta love best friends

I have a best friend.

She's awesome. Truly awesome.

Not only does she listen to me when I rant about things that are troubling me but she always helps me to try and find a solution ASAP.

Most recent crisis: Second sanding of over 300 items in one night.

I'm not gonna lie, I was dreading sanding all those items in one night as I knew if I kept a frantic pace I could complete the sanding in 6 hours without rest breaks.

So I begged, pleaded and bribed my BFF Danica to come over and help me sand (I should mention that I never thought she would EVER say Yes).

But she DID!

So rock on Thursday night, it involved a lot of sanding, a bottle of Rose, two servings of delicious choc mousse but we did it. We did it all.

It took us 3 hours to sand all the pretties. What would have been a trial for me turned out to be a fun experience with my best bud where we got to chat for 3 hours non stop. It involved a lot of laughs, a couple of highs and lows but in the end it averted another anxiety attack.

To end all I have to say is:

LULT Danica!

Everybody loves baking!!

The first batch of pretties were set for baking yesterday afternoon!


First batch done now onto batch two and three!

So this week if you know me..know that I'll be out of action..

Glazing+Pretties = Me getting my game on!

Oh yea, watch this space for pics of the new x'mas decorations.

Yes, I've succumbed. But hey, if you can't beat em' beat em' at their own game!

Mention in Perth Upmarket advertising

Happy Weekend!

I love the weekend!

Some people relax. Some people read. Some people shop.

This person gets down and dirty doing as much clay stuff as she can while consulting the two To-Do lists she has going!


Here is a mention of me and mine in the Perth Upmarket advertising...stuff.

Pretty Up!

The countdown has begun!

I'm not gonna lie, it's been a busy couple of weeks. And by busy I mean, creative and challenging. By challenging, I mean 'WHY IN THE WORLD IS THIS NOT WORKING!?!?...OKAY, PLAN B'.

I like Plan B's.

I like Plan B's so much that I'm now on Plan E.

That's right I've become realistic in regards to my expectations of what I would like to show and what is physically able to be done with Xmas Upmarket, Subi Upmarket, Freo Arts Bazaar and now Oxford st Markets all coinciding at the end of November and during December.

I'm a gal with a 'Can Do' Attitude. In fact, my 'Can Do' Attitude is so instilled in me that I will work like a minion until I get things done.

Speaking of minions..I'm off to do some sanding.

Oh and I'm excited, today was the last day that all the 2010 pretties were being made (green ware made that is). In saying that..I made a f**k tonne. I'll be sanding and glazing for long, long time.


- Gloves
- Sandpaper
- Wicked playlist
- Lots and lots of tea.

Yea, I'm sorted.

Pretty out!

Thursday, November 4, 2010



I haven't been lost. Just SUPER busy! Seriously, I wish I either had 2 more hands, a twin that thought EXACTLY like me or more time to do my ceramic stuff while doing everything else in my life at the mo'.

I'm not the first to express sentiments like this and I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be the last.

Anyway, a news update being posted tomorrow.

Stay pretty!
