californiasoulshine For nearly a year, a photo of this SUP, the @glidesup Lotus, has been at the center of my vision board, & screen saver for my phone & computer. Today she arrived & I took her for our maiden voyage. I am in love 3d

californiasoulshine As an artist trying to make a living, I always put my best work up for sale or give it as a gift. I usually keep only seconds that are somehow not fit for sale or gifting. Until today. These are mine #californiasoulshinedesigns 4d

californiasoulshine I did it. Another record breaking sales day. My hard work was well worth it. I'll be taking it a lot slower this coming week. Time to kick back & enjoy life a little. #grateful #californiasoulshinedesigns 7d

californiasoulshine Almost there... I am trying to do in 5 days what I usually do in 15. Three days ago these pots did not exist. My kiln is full. It's all up to the fire gods now. (please be good to me, I've worked so hard) #californiasoulshinedesigns 1w

  •   californiasoulshine It's been down to the wire so many times... but this week, it's to a whole new level. Last week's market sales wiped out much of my supply & I've got an extra event to vend at in addition to the market this weekend. I had to fill my kiln in two days & nights, bisque yesterday, glaze today, unload & prep tomorrow. Add in jewelry making & wood spoon burning. It's crazy town over here Yet, in a good way. I am so grateful for the success & proud of what I've created. Your support & understanding means so much to me! Thank you @ofhandstudios 1w

californiasoulshine The pressure is on. So what do I do? I have an open faced avocado, carrot, spinach sandwich chased by a shot of tequila. A girl has got to do what a girl has got to do. Also, major props to Sturgill Simpson. His good tunes are certainly helping me pull through. 2w

californiasoulshine I'm not complaining... It's not a bad problem to have. Actually, I'm grateful... But I'm tired. Maybe a little tequila will help? I'll be pulling all day & nighters in my studio this week to prepare for two upcoming events this weekend. Record sales = me making more pots in record time. #wishmeluck 2w

californiasoulshine Life has it's ups & downs, it ebbs & flows. Right now, it is up & flowing! I feel so blessed & so grateful. After a record breaking sales day yesterday at the Farmers' Market, my love & I felt such pride for our community at the Wildflower Music Festival. We ate, drank, danced & were merry with new friends & old. Today, we rest. After an absolutely awesome breakfast at Morning Thunder Cafe, we boated on the river. The cherry on top... no joke... a bald eagle swooped down right in front of us to catch her fish dinner. I could see the details of her feathers, her talons, her eyes. It was an incredible end to an incredible weekend. Joyfully grateful. 2w
