MarciG, now on Etsy

As her profile says, she grew up in my studio. I had a portable playpen to the left of my wheel, and there she was before she could walk, watching. My daughter is now 16, and has a store on Etsy, with 1 sale so far. She has been tweeted and retweeted by our local newspapers! There are two packages ready for shipping by the front door, one with a OneClayBead label, and one with MarciG. I love that when she started stamping words into her bird trays, one of the first words she chose was Dream.

It's a great word!

Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning. -Gloria Steinam

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

-Harriet Tubman

I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

-Henry David Thoreau


  1. Congratulations! I checked and it looks like she already had her 2nd sale!

    Dream on!Dream on! Dream On! Dream until your dreams come true! - Steven Tyler

  2. Such a great story! My 11 year old daughter has had her hands in clay too, but she's not very interested in pursuing it much to my dismay. Love the Thoreau quote...

  3. WOW I had no idean Marcy was your daughter! She had a front row seat on one of my treasuries lately and her little flower dish sold as I thought it would- it was beautiful. What a lovely legacy to pass along. This was such a heartfelt and lovely piece- Thank you for sharing (;
