What I Want for Christmas.

What I want for Christmas is a Red Ryder BB gun with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time. I think everybody should have a Red Ryder BB gun. They’re good for Christmas. I don’t think a football is a very good Christmas present.

Good Luck from the artisans at Universal Mama!

I’ve been hard at work- the final blast of activity before the holidays.  I hope to take a loooong break in December… but if I still feel like working I might take on a few custom orders.

We had company for dinner Monday night and I suddenly realized (too late) that this potter is down to 5 dinner plates!  ROFL!  How did that happen?  I think the kids treat them like paper plates or something.  Guess I’ll add those to the list.   I fed the kids on paper plates that night so we’d have enough REAL plates for the grownups.

Here’s a recent custom order.  She wanted cat treat jars to go along with dog treat jars.  I made extras so I have a couple for sale.  I think they’d be good for a lot more than just cat treats!  I love fish!  :
