If wishes were fishes...

... then I wouldnt have to worry about making a living to support my book habits.

I have been working on pottery and welding and cleaning for the past few days instead of writing which makes me crazy. I need to make pottery to pay for my book writing habits, but I have to write to keep my brain from exploding. It's a tough place to be. I wish I could buy myself more time. I have a studio open house this weekend.

Announcing !

Wild Rooster Artworks Annual Mother's Day Open House and Sale

May 7th and 8th 9am-5pm

1150 E 800 South

Salt Lake City, Utah

Behind the house in the studio.

After sending out 1500 postcards, my mom called to ask if I forgot that my youngest brother is getting married on the 7th ... so I won't be here much of the day on Friday, but I will be around all day on Saturday. My friend will be playing shop for me on Friday after 11. I think my brain cells are suffering for all the stress.

So, after this weekend, I am seriously getting back in the saddle and getting some serious writing done. I promise! Maybe I'll see you on Saturday. I have a plethora of really great new pots and garden art. Plus, it is worth coming just to see the new mosaic on the gazebo behind my home. I hope to see you soon. VIVA NIEDERBIPP!

Ben, I am a florist and unable to come to your open house the Saturday before Mothers Day. I would love to see your work! Pottery class in High School was my lifesaver. I love your book Remembering Isaac, it brings back many good memories. I was throwing pots in High School when you were born. Unfortunately I haven't done much since college, the time will come when I can pursue my hobbies again, until then I'll keep up with my floral work, gardening, quilting, baking cookies and being a mom and grandma. Thank you, Cheryl P.S. I'd love to know more about buttermilk syrup!
