The Foxy Ladies Art Posse-Holiday Gift Market was a HUGE success again this year and plans are underway for hosting more shows in 2013. I am so thankful for the community supporting local arts! I have never sold so much pottery before! I am also thankful for the artists that participated in the event, this just keeps getting better.
I am taking a hiatus from the studio, and feeling a little guilty about it. But, I don't want to be down there just cranking out work because I feel like I need to be. I will get back to throwing when the time is right. I need to sort out my mind a little bit about what I want to be making, what direction I want to move in, what shows I want to participate in. I want to really focus on stocking up my Etsy shop this year. I want to find and dedicate more time to WORKING. Pottery is my work and it is so important to me. I love to create it, I love to see it evolve and I love to share it.
Something that I really want to work on rekindling is my yoga practice. It used to be such a significant part of my life, but ever since I declared to myself that I would work on my home practice (being a new mom two years ago), I left it by the wayside. I also feel guilty about that. BUT, I look forward to making a point to integrate into my life again, into ME.
"Janus" is the god of beginnings and transitions, the future and the past. In my life I always struggle with guilt and worry. Guilt is about the past and worry is about the future. This year, I intend to focus on the present.
