For the past year I have been attempting to teach myself how to market my work online. It has been a HUGE learning curve for me. Etsy account, Paypal, Google, Facebook, Twitter, this Blog were all very new to me. I also had to learn digital photography and photo shop....another big leap! BUT...I am doing it. Slowly but surely.
Yesterday I met with the Small Business Development Center on the campus here a UWL. I am thrilled with all they told me. I hired an undergraduate student in Computer Science to go with me to the meeting. Best idea I have had in a long time. He was invaluable as he picked up on the tecky stuff that I missed. He is coming out to the studio to help implement my first emailing list!!! Yeah! I'm going to keep hiring him as it will free me up to get back into the studio, a place I have been missing this last year.
Keeping my fingers crossed and forging on.

I have continued to make these "Lily Trio Candleholders " from porcelain ceramics for years as they are a very popular gift item, especially when looking for a nuetral Wedding gift. Since it is June I thought I would put them out there for any new bride to be.

Just got back from teaching the staff at Camp We Ha Kee in northern Wisconsin. Great fun with college age enthusiastic staff! We did handbuilding in the morning, wheel throwing in the afternoon and then a crash course in kiln firing and glazes! I wish them the best of luck when all the campers arrive this week!!!!
