Hey Everyone!

Last night was the best event EVER for the Houston Potters Guild. A raving
success thanks in large part by the artists who entered. A lot of hard work
with extraordinary rewards. A lot of lessons learned on what NOT to do next
go round, too. I feel like I just delivered 79 babies (# of teapots in
exhibition). I'm exhausted.

I'll announce the three winners after I confirm who won people's choice last

From the auction: I came home owning Mel Jacobson and Nils Lou teapots!!!!!
You should've seen the look on the Guild's President's face when I wrote in
my bid below hers the last SECOND of the auction. She was strangling my
neck for the newspaper photographer, but I doubt they'll publish that.

Recouping and anxious to get back to MY work.

Will post soon the winners. Thank you so much everyone!!!!!!!!!
