Looks like you are having an absolute blast Amy!
I am Em! I've always been a bit of a craft jumper, and I'm not leaving metal but I am enthralled with the clay!

That's good to know! I've notice there aren't a lot of pretty choices in the warm colors in the low fire glaze range. I'm sure that has something to do with it too...
