Leaving on a jet plane

Does anyone else get that song stuck in their head when they're flying somewhere? I always do...

Tomorrow at 5 am I'll be heading to the airport, off to Phoenix for the NCECA conference. I've been looking forward to this all month! Anytime I've been in a low mood I would just think of NCECA and get all giddy. It's been windy, snowing, and cold for the past couple weeks in Colorado, so I'm looking to a "spring break" in warm Arizona. I've never been there. Have you?

Here's my shopping list / things to look into:

1. Shorter wire cut-off tool

2. Throwing stool... thank you Emily for your recommendation!

3. Wedging table... I don't know if this is actually something I would buy, but I'm curious to look into it.

4. Posters to cover the ugly cement walls in my new studio (best part about these is they're free!)

5. A new favorite mug (I hope to find one I like under $30... that could be a stretch)

6. Trimming tools

7. Graduate schools, residencies, opportunites to further my education possibly starting in January...

Are you going to NCECA?



Have a great time!!!
I will try for next year!

Have fun and good luck with your list! I'm missing NCECA this year because of my upcoming move- but I'm going to live vicariously through pottery bloggers blogging about the conference! You should be able to get a cup for under $30 at the cup sale- but take my advice- get there EARLY! Like 6am if you want your pick :) It's worth it!

You must be back by now (it's April 23) :] Let us know how NCECA went! I am another one who couldn't go this year, so I'd love to hear your experience.

Ah yes, indeed I am :) I'm sorry I've been neglectful of blogging. I've been trying to avoid the internet as much as possible in an attempt to be more productive in other areas - reading, drawing, cleaning, throwing... Blogging and writing articles for the (I'm the Denver Galleries Examiner) are on my to-do list today.
