Sassy Intensions!

I am so excited for our NEW Duncan Oh Four™ Bisque designs to arrive so I can begin working on new projects!!!

A couple of my favorite designs are the new Soy Sauce Pot, Sake Decanter, and Sake Cup which are editions to our Asian Collection! I have the inspiration to create a set for take out nights!!!

Now for one of my favorite new bisque shapes...Yes...for those of you who know me personally, I love Justin Timberlake! That is why when we created this new addition to Duncan Oh Four™ Bisque it seemed so perfect to put saving for Justin T Tickets! I am definitely a "Sassy" saver rather than a "Sweet" saver! But the choice is up to you...make it your own! One great thing about this project is it's decorated with OS™ Opaque Acrylics. Which is a "Non-Fired" you don't have a kiln it's cool to seal with any of our Spray Sealers!

So...what are you intending to save for???

Getting Inspired!!!

Although I have a passion for ceramics I thought I would try something new! Being that I work for a FABULOUS company Duncan Enterprises, they offered a course to learn a really cool mixed media art like Candace Marquette!

In class we blended Tulip Soft Fabric Paint colors together and created a background for design work, then used more Tulip Soft Fabric Paint to create different designs, once everything was dry we took a sharpie marker and outlined the designs to finish the tote bag. But what handbag would be complete without a little added some Tulip Fashion Bead Paint to add some dimension and just jazzed it up!!! Now one more finishing touch...some Tulip Glam-It-Up Iron-On Crystals!!! My first tote project is going to my mom...I know she will just love it! This was such a fun craft project to do, I am totally inspired to try this type of technique in Ceramics! Check out other projects available on our website!

Happy Easter!!!

The baby shower on Saturday was absolutely wonderful! I am so excited for my friend to have her little girl! Emily Ann, what an adorable name! Emily received so many wonderful of my favorites was the tye-dyed cloth diapers! Way to cute!!!

Sunday was so much fun! We spent the day at my cousins house in Coarsegold! As you can see each one of the kids painted a tile for the patio table using Neon Concepts...I am so excited to see how the finished project looks! I will share pictures once the table is complete!
Easter with our family isn't just eating lunch then getting the Easter Egg Hunt over...we do crafts, go out on the pond to take the kids fishing, ride horses, go karts & ATVs, plus spend time together! Check out the photos below from our big day!

Hope you had a wonderful Easter!

Spring into Creativity!

I am so excited about this weekend! There is so much going on...Love it!

On Saturday I have a baby shower to go to for my friend who is having a girl!!!
Then get cooking for the Easter festivities at my cousin’s house! I am to bring my decadent chocolate brownies and a yummy green salad! On Sunday we are going to my cousin’s house in Coarsegold…it is going to be wonderful to see family that is from out of town…plus we are going to do a ceramic workshop with the kids! My cousin came up with the idea…I am just offering some help! He purchased several ceramic tiles for each one of the kids to decorate…I am bringing Concepts® Underglaze, Dimensional Glazes, Tools, and Clearglaze…then we are going to let the kids create their masterpiece! After the tiles are fired my cousin is making them into a counter top for his patio table! Such a wonderful idea I can’t wait to share the joy of ceramics with my family!

On Monday I will share the pictures from my fabulous weekend!

Have a Happy Easter!!!

Artfully Yours,
