Off to Philly!

Monday morning, at an UNGODLY hour, the iLoveToCreate Ceramic Arts team will head out to Philadelphia for the NCECA Conference. NCECA stands for National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts. NCECA "promotes and improves the ceramic arts through education, community-building, research, and creative inspiration." I'm so excited about the amazing artists we'll be featuring in our booth! Musette Young created these beautiful pieces using two of our NEW Renaissance Glazes. Enjoy the sneak peak, and check back for more information on this new release SOON!

I am BEYOND excited about the other artist we'll be featuring, Natalya Sots. Natalya is an artist originally from Pavlodar, Kazakhstan, but she now lives in Chicago's suburb of Shaumburg. I am in LOVE with her whimsy style. It's so fun, and so on trend. Can't you just imagine Johnny Depp drinking from one of these at the Mad Hatter's tea party?!
I can't believe these masterpieces were created with OUR products! Natalya loves to use a combination of Cover-Coat and Envision Glazes in her designs. You can learn more about Natalya at, and purchase her work from her Etsy Shop. If you're in Philadelphia next week, make sure to stop by the iLoveToCreate booth at NCECA to see these amazing pieces (and of course all our other great products!)

Trend Alert: Deco Rose

Spring has sprung early this year! Debuting in fashion in summer 2009, the Deco Rose trend is still going strong and has already made its way to home decor! This trend is in full bloom at all my favorite places to shop. Check out a few of my favorites styles:

Full Bouquet Clip / Anthropologie

Rose-Is-A-Rose Headband / Anthropologie

Tissue Rosette Bouquet Tee / J.Crew
Rose Floating Candles / Pottery Barn

Tea Rose Duvet Cover / Urban Outfitters

We're always on top of the trends here at iLoveToCreate, so of course our designers were all over the Deco Rose trend! Who wouldn't love to create a springy project during this bleak winter weather?! At we'll make it easy for you to create this awesome Graffiti Rose tee...

...and this beautiful Little Red Classic Coupe Dinner Plate!

Our iLoveToCreate designers don't just follow the trends, sometimes they're way ahead of them! Now is the perfect time to create on of my all-time favorite projects, the Crystal Rose Charger!
