Ah the joys of Lovecraft, and what could be better on your tree than some Cthulument.  I do like the way Lovecraft has created the Cthulu mythos that has spread to so much of our lives.  Most recent spotting for me was of course Warehouse 13 episode with the tentacle monster.  So I decided I needed some ornaments for my tree with a Cthulu theme.
I took ye old angel cookie cutter, since he does have wings, and created my ceramic lovelies.  I did not particularly care for how the Jade Moss glaze flowed, the two on the bottom.  The blue gray stoneware did a bit better with black in the accent areas.  I think I will try again and create some with arms and use a green glaze next.  Of course while photographing my creations for etsy I did receive some help from my cat.

Gotta love the critters.  Currently it is thundering so one of my dogs is cowering under the desk.
So don't forget to celebrate the holidays with the Elder Gods, or they might eat you. For sale at my Etsy shop Gryphonwyck

Disney Princess Half Marathon

Continuing the training for the half marathon.  Still running about 3 miles at a time.  It is so hot here it is harder for me to go further.  My full time job and karate take up so much time I need to squeeze in some more running time.  Once it gets cooler than I can run after work, right now its just to hot.  Made my hotel reservations, staying off site where it is cheaper so will see how that works.  Hubby is going so he can drive and cheer since he is not running (to many knee issues).  The next phase is COSTUME. Once it gets closer to Halloween I should be able to find some ideas.  Still planning on being Maleficent, so far most people are princesses, I wanna be a fairy princess, whee.
