Best of Baltimore;)

Woohooo! I'm so excited that Baltimore Magazine gave me a Best of Baltimore award this year!! I just got the letter yesterday:) Of course I had to run out and buy a couple copies of the magazine right away! (sorry for the crappy photo) Hopefully Michael and I can go to the big party they host in celebration. Yay! Just had to share my news;) M and I are off to NY for the weekend, it's gonna be HOT. Luckily we are there for fun and not for standing behind a booth for long hours in the ridiculous heat. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Single Serving Coffee Maker

Artscape is finally over! For those who don't know, Artscape is the biggest arts festival in the USA an it takes place right here in Baltimore! It's 3 days of scorching heat, thousands of people and long hours of standing at your booth. I was lucky enough to have some wonderful booth mates and my super awesome mom who came for the weekend to help me survive. I met some wonderful people and sold lots of pots, thanks to everyone who came out for the weekend! Now that it's over I'm taking a couple of days to recover on the couch and get some work listed on etsy.
One of my favorite new items is this single serving coffee maker. Just add a #2 coffee filter, a few scoops of your favorite ground coffee or loose tea and set on top of your favorite mug (fits all my handmade mugs as well as standard commercial mugs). Slowly pour hot water over the grounds and let the coffee maker drip your hot fresh coffee into your mug. This is a perfect way to make just one cup of coffee without all the waste (and expense!) of a commercial pod coffee maker. Keep one at your desk so you can have a fresh cup of coffee anytime you like!
