I love Shearwater Pottery! & 12 on the 12th starts today!!

This is a picture that I took at the local pottery store where I grew up in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. It's called Shearwater Pottery and they make the most gorgeous pieces of artwork and pottery! The colors of the glazes are just spectacular - most are the colors of the coast! Here's a link to their website. I first visited the store on a field trip with my third grade class. I had a little bit of money and I invested in a couple of very small pieces - which I still have!! I also have many many more pieces as I've been collecting ever since then. I have several pieces that were made for everyday use (bowls, plates, cups....) that I do use everyday. Whenever I'm visiting home, I always make Shearwater Pottery run to add more pieces to my collection.

For this layout I used my December Studio Calico kit. I simply cut several strips of paper and layered them in a random starburst type shape. After adhering the strips, I sewed several "rays" through the whole thing to make sure it would stay put!

And don't forget to start your 12 on the 12th today - which means you take 12 pictures on the 12th of each month and then create a scrapbook page with all of those pictures!!

Ella Publishing is having a contest each month - submit a layout by the due date and you are eligible to win an awesome prize!! This month's prizes are some spots in a couple of BPC class

How about a spot in Cathy Zielske's new typography class, Ten Tips for Better Type? Or May Flaum's new creative layout class, The Curious Scrapbooker's Field Guide?

  1. How fun, I love pottery too. Seeing all the inspiration from Studio Calico kits here (and other places too) I've signed up.

    Decided that as I'm dizzy doing 12 on the 12 isn't a good idea. I'll do some Saturday when we've got all the family around instead.
