More items available at Spiritways

Two of the mortar and pestles and a herb jar now available at Spiritways
This morning, my wife took twenty-five items of pottery over to Spiritways. There were both medium and small mortars and pestles, as well as corked herb jars, in this shipment.

So if you live in Denver Colorado and want to personally check out some of my wife's pottery, slip into Spiritways, which is located at 3301 E. Colfax Avenue.

My brief workday today

Bracelet modeled by my dear wife
MDE here: Today, I edited a small batch of the jewelry photos that I took on Monday. Yes, my July 4th holiday was a work holiday. And yes, I still have five hundred photos to go though; a large number of them looked good on the first glance, so I have got a lot of editing still to do.

And more photos to take.

The setting that I am now using for the camera is working out better than the setting that I was using before. Amazing what you learn when you actually crack open the manual. In my defense, I never had to take these types of photos until recently.

So basically, if you are keeping score, I need to redo all the photos that I have already done before I discovered this camera setting.

Sent out fanpage suggestions to those on my Facebook friend list. I am hoping that those who are interested in following the progress of her jewelry and pottery business are willing to like the fanpage because I plan on eventually posting less news about it on my own personal wall and business pages.

Upcoming craft show---The Handmade Hook Up July 30th 2011

Celtic Soul Pottery at a Craftshow
Celtic Soul Jewelry and Pottery is going to be at The Handmade Hook Up craft show (Northfield Stapleton outdoor mall) on July 30, 2011 (noon to 5 pm). It will be mainly jewelry this time around, though a few regular pottery pieces might make their way into the mix depending upon how much time Toni has after her summer classes are over.
