A batch of mugs for the holidays. My first glaze firing since Amelia. I sure hope I remember what I'm doing!

Our little girl, Amelia Rayann Bracco was born on June 20th 2012 (the first day of summer) at 6:29 in the morning. She weighed in at 8lbs, 14oz and is an amazing baby!
 Now she is 3 months old and we are loving every day together! I'm lucky enough to have a mom who lives 1 mile away and is helping me get back in the studio. I've already re-opened the shop, yay!, and plan to start doing shows again this holiday season. Of course we are taking it slow and only doing a couple to start with. Any potter mommas out there have advice for crafting with a little one? I'm keeping her out of the studio to protect her little lungs so no fear there!
Here we are in our favorite wrap (made by my momma) strolling around the neighborhood.

I always know it's spring when I see the bunnies starting to explore my garden. This year they came a little early as did the lovely spring weather. It just makes me realize how quickly summer is coming and bringing a new little girl for us us to play with. For now I'm enjoying the time to myself to play in the garden, celebrate the signs of new life springing up all around and of course, watch the bunnies!

Featured this week

Featured in my Etsy shop this week! Even though I can't enjoy coffee like I used to I have been loving these single serving coffee makers. Perfect for an afternoon cup of coffee or tea with a tasty sweet treat or for those house holds where not everyone enjoys the same blend. An excellent gift for Mother's day!

Big News!

I know I haven't blogged in awhile but I've been a little busy. Michael and I are making a little person! She's cooking in my own personal kiln right now, due to make an appearance on June 21st. I'm taking a break from shows for the summer, hopefully I will be back to it by the Holiday season but I'm leaving myself some wiggle room for the unexpected. In the meantime I'll be stocking the online shop and some local stores with my work. I plan on creating until my belly is too big to throw the clay around:).

Stay tuned for baby updates and new work that I'm listing in the shop. Mother's day is just around the corner and since I am finding the holiday to be a bit more special this year I'm listing some great spring themed pots in the shop that would make a perfect gift for mom.
