More days in the week, that’s what I need! Where on earth does it all go to so fast. I noticed this today for two reasons. Firstly this year I had great grand plans for being ultra prepared, not ending up in a big stress with a week to go before the deadlines and actually having everything ready in plenty of time. I’ve suddenly noticed it’s almost mid February and I’m not as far forward as I had hoped and my plans for some good proper play time haven’t come about yet. Hmmmm.
Secondly yesterday I realise was FIVE YEARS since the Princes Scottish Youth Business Trust (P.S.Y.B.T) approved my business plan, gave me a start up grant and I registered my business, so officially my pottery is now five years old. Paul then reminded me that in the beginning I said I would give it five years to try to make it work and only quite after that. Well I’m certainly up for giving it another five / twentyfive / fiftyfive years. We’ll see how it goes.
So for your general amusement here is a five year old picture of me in my first workshop probably only about 6 months into the whole thing and some early pots. I’ve just been rather pleasantly surprised by seeing the leaf ones again. Very time consuming sgraffito but I still rather like them.
