I never know what to write for blogs. I feel like I always end up getting too personal, and I am more of a Ron Swanson type of gal.
But....I am going to try for a more technical blog. Show people what art fun-ness I have been up to lately. Maybe some tutorials. Who knows!
After a many years hiatus, I am back at the ceramic wheel, full time, as my main income source. I also work part time for a couple who have their own business. We make leather masks and fairy accesories. They sell at a variety of art show and the Maryland Renaissance Faire.
So, I decided to come back to my main dream job for two reasons. One, I wasn't happy where I was going with my career path. I want to be my own boss...answering only to me. Second, I'M PREGNANT!!!! It has taken us seven years, lots of tears, and losing hope, but we finally get to be parents. We were about to start the process to foster/adopt and we still will after things settle a little. (That is very important to me.) The change of career comes in because I want to be a stay at home mom. I love the idea of working in my studio, playing with my kiddo, going for nature walks, being home to teach him things, hugs, naps, tears, first steps...I want to be there for all of it. I hate the idea of missing it to be at a job I hate. I am lucky enough to have a craft that I can (hopefully!) make money with. I have the best reason in the world to succeed.
And also we are in the process of buying a house. (The inspection is on Friday...I'm so sick with anxiety!)
So basically....three of some of the most stressful life events...we are doing all at once :-)
