On my birthday last week I ran a special offer on my Facebook page Charlotte Hupfield Ceramics (where you’ll always find plenty of offers, prizes and giveaways!), all orders placed on my birthday would receive a special treat: one of my handmade ceramic magnets, a brooch AND a card! I was overwhelmed by the response and spent most of Friday morning packing up complimentary goodies to send out with orders. Yay!
My birthday was a lovely sunny spring day where I visited my favourite local farm shop with friends and enjoyed toasted hot cross buns with hot chocolate, and plenty of cream! My friends baby, Ellie, joined us and we had lots of fun watching the free range chickens.
I really don’t feel 26!
I also spent the morning riding Dizzy – a new addition to my life at the moment. Isn’t she gorgeous? She’s always full of energy, keeping me on my toes!
More new work will be underway very soon, but until then, have you seen the latest collection in my online shop? Happy browsing!
I was a little delayed in publishing this post!…..
Just before Christmas I spent a wonderful few days in Germany and got full swing into the festive spirit with the delicious smells from the Christmas markets, yummy German speciality food and even saw some snow.
Back home it felt such a relief to send out the last of my custom orders of the year, and to have a little tidy up of the workshop ready to start all over again in the new year. After wrapping presents, munching mince pies and a glass of wine or two, it was time to celebrate with some friends. And what better way to celebrate than with a Christmas fancy dress party! There were snowmen, Christmas puddings, santa’s, Christmas trees… and I went dressed as a present Although the outfit didn’t stay on for long!
Looking back over 2012 it has been an amazing year and I would like to thank each and every one of you who has placed an order, bought an item from me, been an admirer of my work, for your continuous positive comments and support, and for all of the friends I have made along the way. I couldn’t have done it without you!
* Here’s to a happy and successful 2013! *
January is a strange time of year. Christmas seems like such a long time ago, while summer feels like such a long time away. With the ‘January Blues’ almost over, I’m hoping things will seem to brighten up a little, including the weather. I can’t wait to feel the warmth of some sunshine. It has been very cold in the workshop, especially my clay! I had to bring some clay into the house the other day to finish making some new work as my fingers were getting too cold, but I had better not start getting into that habit!
