The last 2 weeks I've clocked 100+ hours/week in the studio in preparation for a craft show. My body absolutely hates me and my brain is fried. But I went through many audible books and finished Neil Tyson's Cosmo series. It better rain money soon.

    Jesus, 100 hours. Yes you read it right. Basically wake up, shower, eat, go to studio. Come home, and sleep.
    Don't worry this will end next week.

Oh the joy of buying 15'' shelves, then getting home and they dont fit cause they are 15.5 inches and you have an L&L Kiln with element holders. DUN DUN DUN....

Drove to the studio just now and the guy that plows me out didn't show. On top of that, since I'm on a main road there is a 5' wall of plowed snow blocking the drive way.

    Thanks Nerd.

    This is a case that if the snow don't get me the traffic will. I need to wait for the guy to clear me out (if its not done already).

Ordered 50lbs of commercial grade-refined hectorite today. This is calcium based in lieu of sodium based. According to specs it should be similar to V-gum T: this should be interesting.

18" of snow so far and the storm still has at least 6 hours to go before tapering off to flurries

SPRING WHERE YOU GO!? Just when I start enjoying spring and have my garage door open, a cold front comes in and I am back in the house hiding from my freezing studio and achy bones!

    It will be warm again this weekend. I'm sure the adult eagles are fine, probably laughing at us mere humans. Eggs will hatch in about two weeks. By then it might be summer :-)

I will be gathering quite a few of these: https://goo.gl/images/NGXZn7. Think they would be good for small amounts of glaze materials? They even come with their own scoops.

    Had quite a bit of time in the hospital. On the plus side, I came up with a few pages of concept sketches for wares.

Ordered a 3D printer kit. So I will assemble it and make a clay stamp. Probably take about a week to get it.

    My son bought a broken one at the DAV and fixed it. Wore it out and fixed it again. Then it was broken in a move and he had to fix it again. They took it to the remote island they live on so they can print our anything they need.
