I tend to spill my coffee and home-brewed beer everywhere because I live life to the brim.

Saturday night art night with the housemates. They mostly made Christmas cards. I don't know what this is, but I don't think it spreads holiday cheer. It was nice to have a night in after over two months of nearly nonstop travel! #art #artnight #artsandcrafts #crafts #nightin #doodle #drawing #housemates

Newest luminary! A bit disappointed that some of the holes filled in with glaze, but quite pleased overall. Now, if only I could throw these puppies larger! #wheelthrown #piercedpottery #handmade #ceramics #lettherebelight #luminary #design #light #handcarved #carved

What do you do for your first night in Wisconsin? Make a cheese board of course! #cheese #wisconsin #madison #makeitathome #yum

And today I'm feeling this bowl that, while it may not *completely* circular, has carvings that came out pretty nicely. I'm pretty stoked on the blue. Also, I think it's the biggest bowl I've made. #ceramics #bowls #handmade #carve #wheelthrown #playwithmud #getyourhandsdirty

Digging this new mug on #mugshotmonday! I was aiming for a color I haven't successfully replicated in a couple years (and the only mug that color is on has been steadily getting chipped away at due to some hard times in our marble sink), but I'll settle for this foggy morning mountain range look instead. #wheelthrown #ceramics #handmade #mugs

Yesterday, my grams signed the closing papers to sell the house she's lived in for 51 years. Through some crazy coincidences in the universe, I happened to be in New England and was able to go up and see that old house one last time and enjoy a final glass of wine with my mom and grandma on the back porch. This may not look like much, but this countdown was written by my aunt on her bedroom wall, starting in 1972 when she was in high school and eager to get out of the house. I'm amused that it managed to survive for 45 years. Every time I visited growing up, that writing was just next to the bed I slept in and it's strange to think of never seeing it again. That old house has a lot of history, and it's hard to let go. I don't have any wise words about letting go gracefully or easily. I just wanted to share this weird piece of family history.

I know everyone thinks that the kids they're related to are the cutest, but I'm gonna go ahead and say that these are pretty much the cutest nephews of all time. #nephews #cuties #clydes @the_mane_point

Oh rats! It's hard to reconcile this cute, cuddly creature with the giant rat bastards that tear across our courtyard at night, but here we are! #rats #cutie #critters #petrat

Spent too much time carving this summer, but I'm pretty happy with how these vases/luminaries turned out! There's still a lot to learn here and I'm excited to keep experimenting during the fall sessions. @berkeleyartstudio #ceramics #pottery #playwithmud #handcarved #getyourhandsdirty #experiment #wheelthrown #piercedpottery

Finding an entire alpine lake to have all to yourself for an afternoon on a peak summer Saturday in California is no small feat. You only need to drive for 4.5 hours and hike 14-17 miles, depending on which map you trust. Needless to say, it was #worthit. Nature, you get 5/5 stars. #trinityalps #getoutside #nomoretraffic #didntgeteatenbyabear! #oramountainlion! at Trinity Alps, California

Another luminary, though this time I've learned the importance of tiny cookie cutters. I'm enjoying this one as a vase during the day and a light at night! Daytime picture to come tomorrow. #ceramics #pottery #handmade #lettherebelight #fiatlux

Finally got some work back from this last session. My carvings are a bit off kilter and the glaze was a bit heavy handed (some of the smaller holes filled up), but overall, I'm loving this luminary. Definitely some more experimenting to do with this over the summer! @berkeleyartstudio #ceramics #wheelthrown #handcarved #handmade #pottery #playingwithmud

The finished product! Galaxy/mermaid/unicorn hair carefully hidden by a layer of virgin hair, so I can still be professional when I need to mingle in DC. Thanks, sis, for an awesome new look that adds a lil' touch of magic and color to my life. @the_mane_point #spiceoflife #colormehappy #unicorn #galaxy #galaxyhair #mermaidhair

So this is happening, thanks to @the_mane_point! Stay tuned for the final scene! #partyintheback #galaxyhair #peekaboo #sistertime

Not a bad way to spend a weekend - scrambling up a snow covered trail in Desolation Wilderness to a glorious frozen lake with more views than you could shake a stick at (and you'd look silly trying). #tahoe #eaglelake #getoutdoors #desolationwilderness

Who needs a dozen long seemed roses on Valentine's Day when you can have tomato-arugula roses in your very own mini-quiche? What another awesome v-day celebration at #fortawesome! #Vday #feast #notsocleaneating #valentinesday #rosesaretomatored #foodart

@daedalus12 's First day of Funemployment. Fun breakfast! It's a good thing I was working until midnight on a grant earlier this week...that earns me a leisurely morning, too, right? #brunch #funemployment #homecooked #champagne is a breakfast food

Well, here's one complete assignment for the @berkeleyartstudio advanced class (I think the only one out of 4 or 5 that I actually finished). This set was supposed to mimic @symmetrybreakfast. Thanks, @justhue, for making me plan a whole set of dishes around a single meal! Boulliabase, rouille, a baguette, and oysters on the half shell...exactly what I was hoping for! And thanks to @stonecutbodies for the #alaskancaught shrimp and halibut to really bring it up a notch! #ceramics #symmetry #handbuilt #wheelthrown #seafood
