Glazing, Firing




Maggie came over and helped me glaze more tiles for the mosaic. It doesn't matter what the design painted on them is because they will all be broken up. I just don't want them all to be a solid color.

Today I am firing the kiln again.

firing up the kiln - is that a big undertaking? dont you just push a button or turn a knob? do things take forever to "cook" in there? Remember your sisters birthday is coming up - post fun, unflattering pictures for me to comment on...

Beth- I am starting to sell finally. I have been to busy in the past raising kids.

Mark- I does take all day and I have to hang around and turn it up and keep my eye on it. It fires at crazy high temps so I personally don't want to leave it.
I am searching my archives for the best Carla pics...Of course I would never post anything un-flattering of my baby sister. She can start a blog at any moment too and payback is a bitch.

That looks nice! Hey I noticed you are from Maryland. I was stationed at the NSA for just about my whole nine years in the Army. I love Maryland! Annapolis is one of my favorites are you near there?

Hope you don't mind me going off topic. I just miss living in VA an MD.

Thanks for stopping by my Gazette (blog)

Hey OB. Yes. I grew up right outside of DC. My father worked for the government. I moved to the Eastern shore right outside of OC about 18 years ago. I love Annapolis too. I spent a weekend w/my sisters and our husbands there in Dec. Where are you living now?
