Let's talk about lotion!

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Have you been washing your hands a gabillion times a day? Are your hands raw from sanitizer? I got you, Boo. Well, until these sell out, anyway. You may already be familiar with my goat's milk lotion (ingredients here). I'd been restocking for online purchasing just a couple of times a year, when I had stock left over from craft shows. Well, not doing any craft shows right now, and y'all need hand lotion! So I decided to see what I had made up but not in bottles, and this means we get a little bit of a restock. An...

OK, Universe, got it - I'll slow down

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Ever had one of those weeks where everything you try to do takes longer, is frustrating, and comes out wrong? I'm heading into Week Three of that, so maybe it's time to step back. Slow down. Be the opposite of productive. I know I haven't done a WiP Wed post in a couple of weeks, so consider this a Sunday Check-In version of that. Remember how I joked around that I was having to delay the release of Under the Sea from May 15th to May 22nd, and how I sure hoped I didn't have to delay it again to...

WiP Wed (04/29/20)

Every time I feel like I’m getting back into my groove, on my schedule, I stare at the wall for half a day and then am surprised that it’s after lunchtime and I’ve done practically nothing. Same for you….? In ceramics, y’all have responded in a wonderful way to my WTF mugs! What started out as a joke on my personal Facebook page has turned into everyone’s Official 2020 Apocalypse/Pandemic Mug, haha. Now, because I got sidetracked with those (in a good way) my Under the Sea Collection might be...

New in the shop: Nesting Honeycomb Dishes

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Like bees to a flower, you're drawn to these flower-shaped nesting dishes, in the honeycomb (with bee) texture. There are two sets, each with two dishes; a small set (here) and a medium set (here). The smaller of the two sets has a 5" dish and a 6" dish, and the larger of the two sets has a 7" and an 8" dish. The smaller ones will even fit inside the larger ones, if you need a set of all four! These dishes are glazed with non-toxic glazes, and can be washed with hot soapy water or even run through...
