I want to share you a little secret about myself with you...I have often fantasized about becoming an illustrator but have been so busy being a Ceramic Artist that I usually push those thoughts from my mind. So yesterday when this lovely lady wrote to me and said I was featured on IF, it made that fantasy real for me. Even if it is only for a brief moment. By the way thank you Melanie!
Do you do things you are not supposed to be doing when you have impending deadlines? Kinda like when you were in school and you would clean your apartment when you needed to be studying? We all know about that one. Well you know what I did yesterday...I made a pillow. Yes, with all that I am SUPPOSED to be doing I get a hair up my butt and decide, hey wouldn't it be a good idea to sew myself a little pillow... After all I have this pretty new fabric that I bought in New York when I went to visit my good friend Molly at Purl Patchwork. And that is what I did with my day yesterday friends. Really now, don't look to me for inspiration, unless it is pillows you want to be making. By the way, the pillow turned out very pretty.
Now I am really going to the studio. I swear!
p.s. Does anyone ever have problems with Blogger not letting you readjust your font? I got stuck with this italic version of my post. Did not want to deny you the pleasure of this post just because Blogger won't cooperate with me.
I took my first pottery class in the eighth grade, not because I was interested in pottery but because a boy I had a crush on was taking the class. I remember making a clay hippopotamus in that class but I don’t remember what happened with the boy.
