Kiln Kissed

The "Smoochie" has been through the refiners fire. I am pleased with the results. He/she will be packaged in the gable box with holes punched at the top. I'm trying for the just-home-from-the-pet-store look.

I have a thing about the packaging presentation of a product. Sometimes my ideas work and sometimes the word "flop-a-rama" describes my attempts. These boxes are extremely inexpensive when purchased in 100 lots. A major plus is that they come folded. I am running out of room to stuff pottery, bubble wrap, mailer boxes, tote boxes to carry to sales, outside sale shelving, and the general wrapping supplies. Whew!

So, I'm off to clay some more. I will post pics sometime next weekend after the sale. I just unloaded a wonderful kiln firing. The Dance of Happy is now going on...ouch.

Love that smoochie! Pretty sure it is a she - with those lips Angelina Jolie might be envious! Delightful packaging too - do you have enough interests?? Cheerio - and stay dry!

Very cute Shaun, and I love the package - It will enhance the gift status of your little froggies. Great job :-) T.

Oh how cute he turned out!
I'll bet he just hops into that box before you can even put him there.
Good luck with big sales :)

Thank you so much, all you gracious ladies. I, too, hope the sale goes well. I am planning to rent space at a local Catholic parish carnival (a very large one).So that means Sept, Oct and Nov have, hopefully, profit in their names. May Abba Father bless you all as well.
