New in the Shop: You've Been Poisoned mugs

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Oops! Tee hee hee. Once they read it... it's already too late. That's right... new in the shop, the very-much-asked-for You've Been Poisoned mugs! This mug is available in both right-handed and left-handed mugs (right-handed mugs have the words facing you when the handle is in your right hand; left-handed mugs have the words facing you when the handle is in your left hand). Please be sure to choose the correct one depending on your dominant hand and/or which way you'd like the words to face. These mugs were glazed with non-toxic food-safe glazes, and are dishwasher safe. And while I have...

New in the Shop: The April Mug

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Looking for something unique, something hand made, something quirky? Take a look at these mugs as they are made, a different mug every month for the year. Sometimes the decoration will be the main focus of the mug, sometimes a new glaze will be what catches your eye. Either way, one of these twelve mugs is bound to, over the year, capture your heart and call to you. Let it become your go-to morning coffee mug, the mug you hope is clean at the end of the day for some evening tea, the mug you reach for first even when every...

Works-in-Progress Wednesday (04/17/19)

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

I'm still a little under the weather, so trying more to clean around the studio and make lists of things that need to be done, more than actual doing... (I do not recommend two sinus infections in two months, to anyone). But I do have a few things going on I can tell you about that are mildly more exciting than "I cleaned off my wedging table today". Granted, that wedging table looks SHARP. About a week or so ago, I finally got all the mugs glazed and glaze fired that I needed for some decal work; now comes the...

Works-in-Progress Wednesday (04/10/19)

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Hey, all! It's been a few weeks! We had a great trip up to Indiana, via West Virginia, and back down through Kentucky. We visited many art galleries (oh, Tamarack, I love you so!) and drove though a lot of pretty places, and saw a lot of good people. And that's not even counting time spent with family! But we're back now, and I'm trying to get back into the swing of working, at least as much as the Shop Cats will let me (they were very perturbed that I wasn't there to pet them and lavish attention on them...

HaldeCraft soap price increase

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Hey, y'all. If you saw my post from the other week, you know that one of the three big things I've been facing the last month or so is how to deal with my main soap distributor almost doubling their price of the goat's milk soap base that I use. This has been a struggle, let me tell you; I've been looking around and even with their massive price increase, they're still among the lowest price distributors out there... which means my choice is to raise my prices, change the way I make soap, or stop making soap. I'm not...
