Happy New Year! As we meander through the month of January, it’s been prime time for some annual reflection and recalibration. Balance and progress. That’s what this post is about today. It’s a long one, but hopefully, you can all sort of relate. I’ve been making decisions about what I’d like to accomplish both creatively […]
Getting Serious About Online Marketing
Lately, I have been trying to figure out how to best increase my online presence, while spending the least amount of money. It’s not that I am being cheap or anything, but I do need to be careful. Since I am not a full-time artist, and this is basically my side-gig right now, the disposable […]
We The People?
I keep seeing these things going around Facebook. You know what they are, because you’ve seen them too. Stuff like: – “If you’re an American and a Christian, you’ll do/believe/say X.” – “The Democrats are fools because of such-and-such.” – “Republicans are idiots because fill-in-the-blank.” – “Liberals are the devil’s spawn because…” – “Conservatives are […]
Purpose on Purpose
In my last post, I talked about intention versus attention. So, let’s further the discussion, and talk about purpose. We’ve all thought about it. Usually, as a young teenager or when going off to college, the question is “What’s my purpose in life?”. Or, if you have been reading self-help books for a while, […]
What Are You Paying Attention To?
This morning, I came across this great blog post – https://whenwomeninspire.com/2018/02/21/intention-vs-attention-laurie-buchanan/. I highly recommend reading it! The post is fairly short, to the point, and really gets you thinking. In it, guest writer Laurie Buchanan talks about the difference between intention and attention. This is something I am willing to bet most people don’t think about […]
A Quick Update
Hello, everyone, and a Happy Easter this weekend to those who celebrate! Since it has been ages (yet again) since I have posted, let me give you a quick rundown of what’s been up. Unfortunately, not much. 2017 ended on a high note, but so far 2018 seems to be a series of minor disappointments […]
Optimism and Baby Steps
Sometimes it’s the small steps getting done that can make you feel really accomplished. It feels wonderful when I bring my pots to the studio for bisque firing. Dropping off pots is a small step in toward the end product, however: 1) I got all my greenware across town without breakage! 2) My shelves got […]
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks. But after some delays, I am finally getting closer to my goals. I’ve been doing some glaze experimentation, practicing photography, and throwing, throwing, throwing! My second batch is nearly ready for the kiln, and I fully expect to have my Etsy store up and running before mid-October. Woot […]
