on the one hand, painted mugs.. on the other, gluten-free pizza!

What has humanity LOST by not walking or running and by not using our hands to do things?  Our bodies have evolved to make use of them, but instead we drive and blog…
The reason (most) bakers and potters are so HAPPY is they get to use those ten fingers constructively, then feel great about what they have done. Hands:  not just for texting anymore!

I wondered what it would be like to use my minty blue glaze with light purple flowers and green leaves painted on…looks mighty good, eh?  AND SO much fun to sit there listening to the great music and painting the afternoon away….I get BORED so easily that I really benefit from a mixed up day, throw a pot, trim a pot, sculpt, and in recent months, paint things….

AND then bake a pizza---hands LOVE to make them, tummies LOVE to eat them.  I can't have either gluten or dairy and choose not to eat meat, but that does NOT mean I can't make an amazing pizza, right???? Nicole Hunn's gluten-free on a shoestring has good recipes that have helped...
