The Pecan Festival was a bust

For weeks, leading up to the festival, I did back to back firings. I also experimented on a few pieces and was pleased with the final results:

I'll probably create a series of splatter ceramics soon. That particular kiln opening was pretty great.

So, we went to Charleston the day before the festival to see someone, and while we were there, the litte trick or treaters were walking around the battery! There was something beautiful about it. The kids were lovely and the city is just so romantic.

Flash forward to Saturday; it was hell. A cold hell. haha. It rained as I loaded the car. Then, when i picked up Symon, it cleared a bit. I prayed and he prayed as we unloaded our car and set up the tables.

Then we waited. And it rained. And we were soaked.

It was Symon who decided to pack. I agreed halfheartedly, but I was eager to load when the rain came down harder.

The booth was so beautiful! Oh well.

Whew. A lot has happened since August 2013.

I'm now working (full time!) at a library in the children services area. Oh's so much fun! Here are my 2 favorite picks:

Big Bad Bubble - Adam Rubin
This book is seriously crazy cool. I was laughing and walking around, showing the book to my coworkers. Adam Rubin is a talented guy.

This Moose Belongs To Me - Oliver Jeffers
So, I've had this love for Oliver Jeffers books and illustrations for awhile. This book is special in terms of children loving something  He illustrated The Day the Crayons Quit, but because I'm a story time reader, it doesn't work well with an audience of crazy 2 year old toddlers.
