Here it is...my very first blog. I'm a blogging virgin and at the moment all I can think about is...I hope I'm not too boring!
...so let's do this.
It's the start of a new year and the beginning of the rest of my life. In fact, it really does feel like I have a life now. After almost 25 years of teaching, and I will add that they were mainly wonderful years, I am for now, an ex-teacher. I have a new career...as a ceramic artist.
As of today's date, I've sold a couple of pieces of work! to say the very least I'm delighted by this! Early in the new year I also donated one of my first pieces, a parian tea light holder, to an online social media auction, 'Potters for Aleppo'...it sold for £50!! Can you believe that? That was a huge plus for me as it gave me the confidence I needed. It made me think that I must be okay at this pottery 'lark', ( I inserted that word in inverted commas, as this venture is certainly no lark...it's bloody terrifying at times!) Terrified though I am I aim to carry on AND be successful.
So onwards and upwards, as my lovely mother used to say. Let's do this!
