Cookie Jars, Butter Churns, Ceramic Canisters, Lidded Jars, Etsy Store

Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a relaxing weekend!
 I spent the weekend pouring & cleaning ceramics, which I love doing.
This week I will be finishing a canister set for a customer that will be done in ceramic paints & glazes. I will also try and finish a couple of pieces that are painted in ceramic paints & glazes, for my primitive set I'm putting together. 
I'm hoping to fire this Saturday.

I've decided to list all of the items I'm going to be making, on my Etsy store and not here on my blog.  It will make transactions smoother for my customers, and it will make it easier for me as well. 
With that being said here are the ceramic items available in my Etsy store.

Primitive Ceramic Canister Sets - Sets come 3 or 4 to a set.


Primitive Ceramic Salt & Pepper Shaker Set.

Primitive Utensil Holder

Etsy Store To Open This Weekend! 5/21/2016!

Hi everyone! As you know I've been working really hard to get my Etsy store up and running, and to also get some things painted in time for the opening. I will be opening my Etsy store tomorrow around 11am PST. You won't find any items in the store until tomorrow. Here's the link to it https://www.etsy.com/shop/adorablecc   
I wasn't able to get a complete set of items done in ceramic paints and glazes before the opening. I still have a couple more pieces to finish before I add them to the store. I will post again here when I have them done.

Thank you to all my past customers for your support over the years. 
It really means a lot to me!
Thank you to all of you who have emailed me or sent me messages asking me to make my ceramics again. I really appreciate all of you for being so patient, and for wanting me to start back up again. I feel honored and blessed that so many of you love having my hand painted items in your home! THANK YOU!

Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by today!

Hi everyone! I thought I'd pop in here and let you all know that I've been working on my Etsy store. I should be up and running by the end of this week! I'm shooting for Saturday. I will keep you posted here and will post a direct link to it as soon as I have it open. Thank you all so much for being so patient with me! 
On another note. I found out my email program hasn't been working correctly. Some of you haven't received the emails I've sent out to you. If you send me an email and you don't hear from me within a couple days, please call me. I would never not answer your emails. My customers are my number one priority! 
I believe it is working now though.

Ordering, Custom Ordering, Etsy & Catching Up

Hi everyone! Just wanted to touch base with you to let you all know where I'm at with making the Primitive Ceramic Canisters and the other pieces.
I have been working hard at getting sets made. I finally have 3 sets made, and have begun to paint them. I need several painted pieces to be able to fire the kiln, or it's a waste of electricity. As soon as I have fired the first load I will be posting here to let you know when they will be available in advance. 

ORDERING: If you'd like to place an order for my canisters or any of the other ceramic pieces I'm going to be making please feel free to send me an email to jodystacy@hotmail.com  or call me @ 253-678-4621.  

CUSTOM ORDERS: I do accept custom orders. If you'd like a custom order made, please feel free to send me an email or give me a call and we can discuss your needs. 

ETSY: I've also decided to go ahead and sell my items on Etsy as well as my blog. My store isn't up yet as I'm working on that in the evening. But, you will be able to find me there through my blog or by typing in adorablecc in the search bar.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. 
Thank you for stopping by today!

Primitive Ceramic Salt & Pepper Shaker

Hi everyone! Since I posted last I've been really busy in my studio making the Primitive Kitchen Canisters, and more! It's quit the process from start to finish, (which I already knew), but is so worth it in the long run. 

If you know me at all, or have been following me for a while, you know that my favorite paints are acrylics. But, since I started making ceramics several years ago, I've really wanted to paint them using ceramic paints & glazes because when I paint them with the acrylics it takes too long and there are so many steps to take.  I really want to cut down on the time it takes to make them. 

So I made a Salt Shaker painted in ceramic paints and glazes and wanted to show you some photos of what they look like painted in both types of paints, acrylic & ceramic paints and glazes. 

These were painted in acrylic paints on the outside and then stained. Then sealed with a matte sealer. 
They have clear ceramic glaze on the inside so their food safe.

   
This one was painted with the ceramic paints, and a mocha crackle glaze on the outside. (You can't see the mocha crackle glaze to well in the photo, so I posted a close up photo below.) The inside has clear ceramic glaze so they're food safe.

 Here I'm showing you a close up photo so that you can see the crackle glaze. 


This close up shows what the tops look like. The photo shows them being lighter than they actually are. I'd say they are actually a shade darker than the photo, and the crackle can be well seen from a distance. 


I will be shading around the tops and bottoms with another layer because I don't like how this one looks for as far as shading goes. 
So what do you think? Do you like these? Do you have any suggestions, or opinions?
 I'd love to hear your feedback!
If you don't feel comfortable commenting here, please feel free to send me an email to jodystacy@hotmail.com

I plan on making a complete kitchen set in this primitive design which will include the following functional kitchen pieces:
Primitive Kitchen Canisters  (Set of 3 or 4)
Primitive Salt & Pepper Shaker Set
Primitive Spoon Rest
Primitive Utensil Holder
Primitive Soap Dispenser
Primitive Sponge Holder
Primitive Grease Pot
Primitive Butter Churn
Primitive Butter Dish
Primitive Cream & Sugar Dish Set
Primitive Wax Warmer (Maybe)

I will start painting Canisters and such starting 4/25/2016. If you don't like them painted in the ceramic paints and glazes let me know and I'd be happy to paint them in acrylics for you. The price of those will be a little higher than the one's done in ceramic paints and glazes, but I'm happy to do them for you. 

Thank you for stopping by today!

My New Pottery Studio!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! 
I've been exremely busy around here!
A couple weeks ago I had a garage sale and I was able to get rid of 95% of the things that were occupying my shelving, that I needed to use for my pottery.
 My husband and I cleaned the garage and I'm all organized and I've already begun making my pottery!  
Here's some photos of my new pottery studio.
It's nothing fancy, but at least I have a clean organized space to work. 



 As you can see from the photo above, I've been pouring, trimming and cleaning pottery to get them ready for the kiln.
I will be firing my first load this week, and I'm pretty excited!
 Today I'm testing & experimenting with colors. 
I've been doing a lot of thinking about the pottery I'm going to be making and will have some surprises in store!

A note about purchasing from me:
 I will be selling everything I offer through this blog.
I will have PayPal buttons below each product.
You'll be able to purchase via PayPal, or by Credit Card through PayPal (you don't need a PayPal account to use this option). 
There will be drop down choices that may include color options, Quantity options, etc.
If you have any questions about any of the products I offer please feel free to contact me via email located at the top of this page. Or you may phone me at 253-678-4621.
As of right now I'm not sure if I will offer my products on a website or an Etsy store, as it's too time consuming.

I hope you enjoyed your visit today!
Thank you for stopping by!

Primitive Kitchen Canisters - Ceramic & Wood

Hi everyone! 
I've received several emails about my Primitive Kitchen Canisters and whether or not I'm going to be making anymore of them or not.




So I thought I'd write a post to answer your questions.
The answer is YES :)  I will be making more of these in ceramic. But, it will be at least another month before I start making them. I need to get my garage cleaned up and organized but, it's just to cold out there right now. As soon as it has warmed up some I will get that done so I can start making them again. When I start making them I will let you know here on my blog.

 As for the primitive wooden canisters, I'm not sure whether or not we will be able to make more of those yet or not. The reason being is, last I heard we couldn't purchase the removable rubber containers for the inside of them anymore. But I have to do some looking into this to see if we can find something that we can put inside of those that will work so their food safe.



If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. 
I'd like to thank everyone that has emailed me and sent me private messages asking me about these. I'm honored that so many of you love my hand painted pieces. 
Thank you!!!
~Jody~

Mini Cardinal Windchime - Renee Mullins

Hi everyone!
Today I have a Mini Cardinal Windchime to share with you all. 
This is designed by Renee Mullins and the pattern is called "Winter Melody". You can find it here.  
I know Christmas is months away, but I wanted to make something small and this project seemed to fit in. And besides you can paint Christmas things any time of year can't you? ;) 

I painted the design with Americana Acrylic paints.
The back has been stained with Minwax.
The item has been sprayed front and back with a clear glossy sealer, so it's safe to hang outside. It comes with a gold hanger attached and is ready to hang.


I have put togeher a step by step video for you as well.



I have two of these available for sale that you can find on my For Sale page.


If you have questions about anything please feel free to contact me. 

I hope I have enspired you today!
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Love Is In The Air - Laurie Speltz

Hi everyone! 
Today I have a new project to share with you all. 
This is my first painting, designed by Laurie Speltz. 
I've wanted to paint this project for quite a while because you can display this piece in your home from Christmas through Valentines Day, and when you see it you will know why. ;)

The design was meant to be painted on a cutting board. I didn't have the exact cutting board she mentioned, so I adapted the design to fit onto the board I all ready had on hand.


Here's sort of a step by step video on how I painted it. I kept forgetting to take photos of each step but I'm getting better at remembering to do that I promise! 



This is a free pattern called "Love Is In The Air", that you can find on the "Artists Club" website here.  
In fact there are tons of free patterns there available for download! 

I hope you enjoyed your visit here today, and that I have inspired you!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
