It is such a perfect day today I wish I could just take my wheel and clay outside. I think my perfect studio would be open and with lots of windows to let the light just shine in. To be able to throw and still feel like I was outside would be a dream come true.

There is something about a day like today that just makes me more creative. Me and the dogs, Mia and Tagen hang together in my studio (aka the basement) as i throw or do my slab rolling. Oh I can't forget Misty, one of the cats. She has a thing for my sponges. Don't know why but she is always stealing them and bringing them upstairs. There is also Morrison, another cat, but he doesn't come downstairs because Misty won't let him. I guess she wears the pants in the family.

So as I sit here typing this blog I'm really thinking I should go out onto my deck and just do some sketching of pottery I will create in the future.

Yep that's what I'm gonna do. You all have a great day.
Talk to you soon.
Rosalia, Mia, Tagen, Misty. And Mo

Trying to get back on track.

I'm finally taking the time to sit and check out all the blogs I haven't been able to catch up on. Then realized just how long it's been since I blogged anything.
I think I could use some advise on how to take the time to stop and blog. I love the idea. Social networking is awsome. I know I have to put in the time but I just haven't found that perfect time to do it.

So my question is: When do you blog? In the morning? I go to work at 7 am. Afterwork? Laundry, vacuum, dust, cook dinner. Not working for me. After dinner? I've been up since 6 am. My brain is fried.

Do you set a time to do your craft, whatever it is you need a block of time to do it. I do find time for that. I love making pottery. Creating something from a lump of mud, then firing it. The best part is that moment I open my kiln after a glaze firing. It's like Christmas.

Anyway any ideas about time management? I could use some advise.
