Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Yes, as an artist, I tend to do my own thing a lot. But one thing I love to do as well, is bring what you are thinking about, into reality. Here are five ways I can do that for you. Ceramic photo tiles: Your pet. A favorite family photo. Wedding photos. Your childhood home. Your best photo from Instagram that got the most hearts.

Five ceramics now available in custom colors - right from the item page!

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

This weeks' Friday Five post is short, but sweet! Y'all already know I love to do custom work, making many of my ceramics exactly the color you want to have. For a few weeks now, I've been working behind the scenes to make that even easier for you. These items are now available in custom colors! Not everything I make is going to be available with this new option, because it will depend on how much backstock bisque I have - but as I get my new studio more and more organized, the plan is to have at least one of almost...

That Poor Man is estimating this might take about four weeks...

Winnie-the-Pooh says that it's not the moment that you you're eating the honey that's the best moment, it's the moment before you start to eat the honey; that moment when you savor the awareness of anticipation. That feeling, being aware of anticipation, is how I feel about this coming year. Exciting, wonderment, thrilling... all of these things combined.

Holiday order and shipping times

Posted by 55799468 on

I’ve been getting a lot of messages from new customers (welcome new followers!) about custom orders for the holidays, and shipping times. It breaks my people-pleasing heart to have to tell people I can’t get custom orders done now - ceramics takes me about six weeks from placing of the order to mailing it out, yarn takes four weeks, and soaps take three; if you follow my blog you saw me post my final dates for holiday custom orders there back in September - but the good news is that I do have PLENTY in stock on both my regular online...
