New Year!

Just think, another whole new year coming, with, so far, no bad pots in it! No kiln disasters, no glaze floopies, no frowning customers, no sweaty all-nighters...... whoo hoo!

To properly celebrate this fact, Smartass and I put together an amazing little desk calendar.

It has a page for every month. All 12 of them! None missing! Not even July!

It has days for every month, hopefully the right number of them each time.

The numbers are written ever so neatly! OK, Microsoft Word gets some of the credit.
The cover.... exciting, huh?

Smartass got himself onto every page, but you knew that was going to happen. He points out that he was really quite restrained and only appears once per page.

Now, here's the deal: if you would like your very own copy of this unique aid to temporal organization (you can write on it), just send an email to Pine Ridge Studio. The first 3 emails will get a free (free!) Official 2013 Smartass Calendar

(Do not include your address - if you are one of the first 3 to respond and win a calendar, I will email you back and you can send your address then. I'll mail you the calendar once you send your addie. Easy? You bet. Worth doing? Of course. Fun? Natch.)

(What happens to your email if you don't win? Nothing!! I delete it! Promise.)

Oh, and Happy New Year to everyone!

Merry Christmas!

.....'twas the night before Christmas, and all the orders were done, all the clay was put away, the kilns were standing ready....

... a branch of green lay on the table, wafting scents of balsam and fir around the Studio....

... stars twinkled in the cold sky outside....

... eggnog and cookies were abroad in the House....

and the Tomtes came out to play:

Merry Christmas, Everyone!
