early fall day
I am making something new! I have been trying to figure out how to construct a corn shock for years. I think this will work. Am also making Halloween bunnies and other animals. Can't wait for my first show! Brandt brought Indigo down for a visit last night and all three puppies are wrestling, rolling, jumping and enjoying their visit. I baked fresh peach muffins for breakfast and took them warm to some of my special friends here in Mitchell and the Park. Life is good...I am so blessed.

Today I am working on the invitation to the fall show in Louisville. It will be held September 13th at the Clifton Center, 9 am till noon. It's fun to play with Publisher, my pictures and all the info to come up with this mailing. I am eager to get back to the clay. I'll take the dogs for their walk at Spring Mill and then fold these invitations. Maybe I'll have a bit of time later to create...

Visit to the Dunes
I spent the weekend with my daughter Allyson and her husband Brandt up at Indiana Dunes State Park. It is so beautiful there. The dogs all played together and ran on the beach. It was so relaxing and fun. My friend Judy went with me. She has known Brandt since he was a little boy. Fun! One last summer trip before I get really serious about Christmas.

Welcome to my online diary! I am so happy to share the stories of life on Rabbitville Road. I work in my studio by day, creating wonderful clay sculptures. This is a beautiful place, a retreat from the big world outside. It is peaceful and quiet and I am visited by all kinds of animals and interesting people. I have daily visits from mama deer and their fawns, rabbits, (of course!) possums, raccoons, mice, chipmunks, squirrels, turkeys, coyotes, and the neighborhood dogs and cats. I have flyovers by all kinds of birds, including sandhill cranes, herons, geese, eagles, hawks, owls and every other kind of bird imaginable. I have 17 fish living in my fish pond as well as some interesting frogs. I have two dogs, one 9 year old named Annie who followed me home one day when I was running. The other is an adorable pup named Jack who has cornered the market on cute. They are my constant companions. I love to garden, and live to be outside. But my deliberate passion is to create and clay is my medium. I plan to share my creative adventures with you and keep you updated on what is happening in my little part of the world. Life is indeed wonderful on Rabbitville Road!
