Five Restocks at HaldeCraft this week

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

A lot of restocks were sprinkled in with everything else this week, so in case you missed any of that, here's a roundup! Small cabled sweater bowls; The companion piece to the cabled sweater mug, this little bowl is absolutely perfect for a serving of ice cream, soup, or morning cereal (or, let's be honest... dinner cereal!). Be the envy of your yarn-loving friends when you share photos and this is included; inspired by Aran sweaters, the cable detail is sure to invite oohs and aaahs from your friends. A handful of soaps were restocked (and more will be restocked...

WiP Wed (06/12/19)

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Good morning! How has your week been so far? I'm sitting here with fingers itching to type (and hopefully not misspell everything, since I'm also only halfway into my first cup of coffee as I write this) and a creative fire under me that wonders how early is too early to get over to my studio? Asking for a friend, haha! Mostly what's going on this week is ceramics. I have some llama planters and some Buddha planters I want to get painted and glazed, I have some things in the kiln I can't wait to fire (I mean, literally,...

Well, I was right; yesterday's power outage did hose my kiln firing... so one thing I'll be working on this week is re-making all of those custom orders and restocks. Yay! Oh! And it looks like I also forgot to put together a WiP graphic, so clearly I am batting a thousand this week. In ceramics, I was looking forward to sending out a lot of custom orders today, but, accidents happen, and ceramics is a life-long lesson to me in patience, so I'll be starting those over. I also need to make a new sample mug for the Cats...

Announcing the August 2019 HaldeCrate: Cats and Dogs

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

That's right! Cats and dogs, living together... mass hysteria! Hahaha. Just kidding (sort of). It's not a Ghostbusters theme, but it is a Cats and Dogs theme. Do you know how many National/International days there are in August for pets? Specifically cats and dogs? So of course that had to be the theme! What do you get to choose from in the Cats and Dogs HaldeCrate? A skein of yarn in the base of your choice (from what is available); a set with soap (Puppy Kisses, milky and salty), hand lotion (Kitten Purrs, fruity and floral), and lip balm (Sweet...

On Supporting Other Artists and Makers

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

It may surprise you to learn that I'm not independently wealthy. I KNOW. How can a woman who makes baby head mugs and writes serialized science fiction be RAKING IN THE DOUGH?! It's true. You don't choose this way of life to get rich quick. Because I ask people to give me money for things I can't not make, I love to give other people money for the things that they are also on fire about making (or trade for - the barter system is alive and well in the Maker community). This is my second Lobster Rose Pottery mug....
