Sorry I have been absent for sooo long- I was making some very hard decisions about my life and was just not ready to share...
I have moved to a new place and I am making a fresh start on my own. No one to blame, I just needed to do what I felt was going to be best for me. It was a very difficult choice to leave my marriage after having spent 15 years together. We parted on as good of terms as one can in this situation and I believe we will remain friends. So there you have it, at 47 years old I am starting over- full of hope, a little scared and trusting that I will find peace & happiness on this new path.
It has taken me some time to get my studio back up and running but I am finally creating again. Lots of back orders so I am busy (which is good for more than my finances)! Also having to adjust to a MUCH smaller space has had its challenges but the biggest challenge is having to transport my work to be fired since I could not hook up my kiln at my new place. I have to pack it in all kinds of padding and every bump in the road makes me cringe!!! I only lost 2 little pieces so far so I feel pretty lucky.
Besides catching up on my orders- I am teaching handbuilding this session at Clayworks. I have a great group of students who have made my Wednesday nights a lot of fun- I hope they are enjoying it as much as I am!
Have a great weekend, love the one you're with and enjoy every moment!
