I always love New Years!

They're a great excuse to do new things, reconnect with old people, change ourselves... Something we're always able to do but for the new year we've been socially conditioned to do it since we were young so just comes more naturally.

For me this has meant beefing up my volunteer time (planting trees & building homes more often) and starting a ceramics class; something I've literally been meaning to do for years but keep on finding excuses related to being busy.

I've paid $$ for it now no more procrastinating as I only ever like to part with cash when I'm getting something in return. I fancy myself a master procrastinator, but really what that means is I'm fantastic at breaking my word with myself... So I lie to me unintentionally all of the time.

Anyhow here's to happy new beginnings and finding freshness in our lives whenever they turn stagnant which can be all too often if we're not careful!

How's your ceramics class going?
I'd love to see some pieces you made there.
Have a great year. :-)

I've not gone back for a few weeks but as soon as I'm able I'll go back.

thus far I've made some pretty unremarkable bowls lol

Unremarkable bowls can be turned into really nice stuff with a little clay foliage and engraving. I don't have a photo handy, but one of my friends is quite fond of ceramics and she made some very nice stuff.
There's a camp for artists taking place every year in summer, about 250 kilometers away from where I live and they have made some very interesting stuff.

I have yet to process last year's photos (got lazy with photo processing) and post them somewhere (Facebook is most likely, some other places if I get permissions for that).

I've not made any ceramic pieces myself, but I could post my only two blacksmithing pieces I made so far. :-)
