Wow, it’s hard to believe we are at the end of the year already! I have to say though, I am really ready to say goodbye to 2018.
Thank you 2018 for giving me many gifts. Mainly the gift of gratitude. I have honestly never felt so grateful in all my life. It’s a bit cliche’ but sometimes it takes something dramatic to happen in your world to shake things up a bit. Encouragement to stand back and look at the bigger picture. I never really knew how much I appreciated my life, family/friends, my creativity and my optimism. That was 2018 for me :) I promised this wouldn’t be a heavy blog…So with that said, lets charge our glasses and say hello 2019!
Before I head into holiday mode (and for those wondering were their mugs or cups are), here are a few snaps of the last batch of 2018 mugs travelling around the studio. Wet weather held the process back a few days as they sat quietly in the kiln trying to dry out… As I type, I’m still patiently waiting to open the doors after their glaze firing… might have to wait until Christmas morning to see how they went, how poetic. Lovely shiny pots from Santa :)
I am going to take time off, from now until the first of January. I will be sending out remaining orders but plan to spend most of this time reconnecting with family and friends. I have exciting things I want to do this year with my illustration work. Screen printing onto clay, making screen printed tissue transfers with under-glaze and a couple of other little fun side projects I’ll be sharing with you. It’s gonna be a fun year!
So from me and my family to you and yours, have a very happy holiday season and all the best with your endevours for 2019! Thank you for supporting me throughout 2018 xx
