Today I’m eating pound cake.

The first thing on my agenda during this break from RSE, is to get my health back on track.  Katie and I are doing a sort of healthy eating boot camp:  Whole30 .  We are starting tomorrow, June 1.

And today I find myself stuffing my face with pound cake that will have to be thrown away at midnight :/  This is exactly the kind of behavior I’m hoping to modify by doing this whole30 thing!

An announcement from RSE

I have decided to take some time to step back and do some revamping of RSE. There are two reasons for this. One, to take a look at my business model and make a few changes in how I manage the company. Two, to reawaken my creativity which has gradually taken a back seat to production over the 11 years I have been in business.

Because of this, I will not be taking any orders for an extended length of time. Any previous orders that have been finalized will still be honored, and I will continue to stock my etsy shop periodically. I have a small coop/preorder scheduled for late summer that will still take place (through The Squirmie Worm on facebook), however, I will not be attending any shows this summer, and I will not do the holiday custom order this year.

Since creativity is an imprecise thing, I cannot put a definite date on when I will bring RSE back to full throttle again, but I do plan on doing so, hopefully by this time next year.

Thank you to all my customers and friends!



It’s been awhile since I blogged- how have you all been?  🙂  I have been wrapping up some large orders and getting ready for this upcoming show!

The Rhode Island Sheep and Fiber Festival (here is their website ) is held at Coggeshall Farm in Bristol, Rhode Island.  It’s a lovely place to visit at any time, with all sorts of heritage farm animals, buildings and activities.  The Fiber festival is a great place to stock up on lovely handmade, hand dyed or handspun yarn and fiber and also fiber related crafts of all sorts!

I will be there with my pottery with a larger than usual selection of yarn bowls and sheep- and fiber-related mugs along with my usual offerings.  Hope to see you there!  It will be held rain or shine.
