Happy days. All Güd Fun

Happy days. All Güd Fun

Hi there.

Thanks for popping in. Today is a good day. Today is a Güd Day. Correction. Today is an excellent day.

It started when I woke up. Had a lovely dream. That’s rare, so I relished it, and was glad to remember it. Slept well too.

The kiln had cooled down enough to be able to open it. Perfect. Virgin Load 100% successful. Everything bisque fired beautifully. I mean, it’s only little pots n things, but hey. To make something out of a lump of clay, throw it, turn it, and take it right through to firing and beyond – that just turns me on!

Here I’m loading it on Saturday morning…

And here it is, the moment of TRUTH at 6 this morning…

Glazing this evening – then back for ding ding! Round 2! Glaze firing.

The SHAC Shack was fun too. Folks are loving our Nordic Gnomes, our Gud Family…

Then I ticked lots of other little Christmas boxes, got this n that underway, as you do. Had a lovely chat to Leonie. Do love that woman. A total creative. We’re making cool plans for the New year together too. Thing I love about Leonie, we’ll not speak for months, but then we just pick up where we left off. Total respect and trust.

Before I call it a day up here above the garage, just wanted to check in with you, my bloggy-oggy friends, and spread a little positive energy.

Now what was that competition we had the other day…..ah yes! The 2 STAG CANVAS GIVEAWAYS….

Thanks to all who joined in the Name the Stag game! I scrolled down the list and stopped in 3 places. Three?? Well, I found a third Stag canvas, and thought he could go to a happy home too!

So here are the 3 winners of the Stag art:

Sally Pragg – IGNATIOUS

Pauline Eden – VIDAR

Alison Ainger – RAMBO !

Well done ladies! If you email us your addresses, we will get those pics sent out to you straightaway xxx

Time to go cuddle a kitten a two…

All Güd. Stay safe x

Love and Hugs

  18. Congratulations to the Stag Naming competition winners.

    Your pots look great, such an achievement on your first firing, your smile says it all.

    These gnomes are GORGEOUS. I haven’t got to this doodle yet but seeing the results makes me want them in stamps and Groovi. Any chance we could have these some time in the New Year? please please please?

    We had a computer meltdown at the weekend and I lost some e-mails amongst other things. We recoverd a lot thanks to hubbiys belt and braces security but unfortunately not everything. One of the missing items was the Elf Hunt e-mail number 13. Are e-mails from Clarity the only way to get these clues?

    The Christmas jumper stamp set arrived today, have made a few fun cards, not Christmassy, but I really enjoyed myself this afternoon.

    Stay safe everyone.
