I was so sad when I saw this clay zebra had lost her back legs. I can only guess what happened the night before I got her in the kiln. So I remembered the first quality of highly successful people which was they see an opportunity instead of a problem. I chose to see the possibilities.. a donkey with wheels in the back with Obama riding it, or a zebra with a wooden leg, etc. I got very excited and happy. AND she fit in the kiln too!
