being childish....

Get out of bed this morning, start cropping these pics and say to myself "you make pots for the boy you were 40 years ago".
YES.  I loooooved PINOCCHIO when I was little, and wanted to be Gepetto, the guy who made toys!  Now I do, sort of, the Godzilla pots, the robot pots and now....car cups.
A friend is over last week and sees ONE small car cup I had made last year.  It turned out nicely but I was still thinking what to do with it.  She is like "GO FOR IT!  Make more!"
So this week?  I finally did....

It's fun to see the various pieces together...it's like they interact with each other and each has personality plus!

I am getting out of the shower and God speaks to me: "GARY!" and I am like "???" and God is like "TRY TO MAKE THEM WITH ROLLING WHEELS" and I am like "!!!" and God is like "AND CHARGE A TON OF MONEY FOR EACH ONE" :)
