A New Clay Adventure! When One Door Closes – Another One Opens

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

I wanted to take this time to say …..there are not enough words to say… how much I appreciate and am thankful for each and every one of you! You have filled my year with fun, friendship, clay, learning adventures, and love. Let’s not forget, lots and lots of personal growth sprinkled in!

2018’s goal was to bring together like-minded clay enthusiasts into a community (newsletter & Facebook Group) to learn and inspire each other through our individual pottery journey’s while working on a common themed free monthly project. I LOVED this time with all of you. Hopefully, you all have enjoyed these projects and made warm lasting friendships along the way!

FINAL PROJECT NEWSLETTER-  December 2018

Yes, it’s true, December will be the last official project installation and our grand finale of monthly projects. If you have been with me through this year..thank you so much and CONGRATULATIONS!

The steps you took may have caused you to stretch yourself and develop new skills for future creativity. But don’t worry … I won’t be far away. When one door closes, another one opens…

(If you wish to save the project notes from this past year please visit the archives / Past Issues of one of your newsletters and PRINT them for your records before December 31, 2018).

SOooo…. WHAT’S IN STORE FOR 2019 – BACK TO MY ROOTS – THE VIDEOS, THE BASICS

Videos Are Back
Taking a holiday and then I’ll be returning to YouTube making videos in 2019 (I may be a little rusty … so bare with me) 😀

With the brief hiatus from sharing my clay journey through video, I’ve decided to head away from my laptop and back into the studio! (if you want to get notices just subscribe and “ring the bell” for notifications to easily follow along).

MY HOBBY POTTER BUCKET LIST? 
Over the past almost 8 years of videos there were “clay promises” made and adventures never taken. There were projects I wanted to try and never attempted. THAT is what this next journey will involve! I’m cleaning up my commitments …and am still excited to get to them! I want to make good on my word and grow in the process 😀

As always, this personal video/vlog journey will keep me accountable in the studio , as I actively check off pottery bucket list items.

Meet Me On Facebook and Join Me By Making Your Own Bucket List
What would YOU like to accomplish in the next year? Don’t put it off… Are there places, people, adventures in clay that you think will really excite and make a difference in your work? (If you don’t aim at a target, your chances of hitting it are slim) Join me in stretching yourself with your own personalized Hobby Potter Bucket List and learn what moves you in clay.
So full gratitude for this past year of doing projects together with you!  My hope this that people continue to make a connection to each other and to their clay. If I played any kind of role in helping people find the joy of clay … mission accomplished!
