Somehow, in a completely distorted universe far, far away, it makes perfect sense to trade middle-of-the-road-promotional-material-making-skills for this:
A gorgeous and very rare pink crystalline cake plate.
Some friends of mine are brave (and crazy) enough to have fallen for this special craft. She throws the pottery -- all gorgeous -- and he glazes. He's a software salesman by day, expert mineral crystal glazier by night. Their stuff is ridiculously beautiful. The failure rate on these kinds of pieces is very high, so most people don't bother with it. I'm so glad they do.
They had never tried pink before, but that's what I requested... so here it is. Their first pink plate. Oh, Larry, thank you. It's perfect.
And your little postcards are on their way...

I also keep forgetting to thank Jade, at chikaustin, for bestowing the "You Make Me Smile " Award on yours truly last week. The last award I received was in high school for Best Actress in a Comedy. Which sounds very impressive until you realize there were only two girls in the whole production. And I had more lines.
So when she tapped me (and a couple others) out of the many talented bloggers out there as someone who makes her smile... well. Let me tell you. I felt special. If you haven't had a chance to check out her lovely blog, make sure you do. She has been cranking out some darling pillowcase dresses lately! Jade, you make me smile, too. XOXOXOXO
