I’m just a girl who likes to play in the mud. I love the way clay feels in my hands…the way it squishes through my fingers when I throw…and I even like the way it smells.
There once was a little girl with big brown eyes who loved to play in the mud. When she wasn’t playing in the mud…her other favorite thing to do, was color. She colored and colored until she didn’t want to color anymore, and then she played with her easy bake oven.
Many years went by, and the little girl with the big brown eyes grew up. She continued to play in the mud, she still liked to color too, but she didn’t use her crayons anymore, she found something better…beautiful creamy glazes. So she colored her mud with the pretty creamy glazes. But she couldn’t put it in her easy bake oven anymore…because it was broken. So, she put it in her electric kiln instead, and every time she opened her kiln…it was like Christmas!
