I’m so excited to be posting over at Keepin’ It Kind today for Kristy’s annual cookie swap party. Kristy is such a terrifically warm human being and a person I feel blessed to call my friend. Keepin’ It Kind is always a well of good feelings and mouthwatering food (photographed by her equally fabulous husband, Chris). Also did you hear that Kristy is currently working on a cookbook? I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy! (You may remember that I did a video interview with Kristy in September. If you missed it, it’s available for viewing here.)
While you’re over at Keepin’ It Kind, you’ll definitely want to poke around a bit, check out Kristy’s recipes and the insane delights that other bloggers are bringing to this all-vegan cookie swap.
What’s my entry? Indian falafel with a peanut curry dipping sauce, of course. They’re also known as Curried Ginger Men. Doesn’t sound like a cookie to you? Well, you’ll have to head over to Keepin’ It Kind, where everything will be explained.
But before you go, I wanted to let you know that my Etsy pottery shop, Olive Pit Pottery, has been updated. The stock is full, and I’d love it if you’d take a peek. I have cute button bowls, sauce dishes, and some Doctor Who ornaments (representing Tom Baker, Peter Davison & Matt Smith) for those Whovians on your list.
In addition to making pottery for the shop, I’ve gotten the chance to do a couple of commissioned pieces lately. One was for someone who wanted a mug that was Sherlock related. I came up with the idea of making a mug that incorporated Sherlock’s famous address.
And one was for someone who wanted owl mugs:
(I made a couple of extras, and so I have a similar owl mug available in my shop.)
I’m really delighted with how the commissioned pieces turned out, and I’m planning on making more of those styles in the new year.
