The Next Big Thing

Apparently it's my modus to go to radio silence when big changes are in the wind. I did so last year just after I purchased the kiln bricks; this year my big news is that I have quit my day job. There's another piece of all this that isn't quite nailed down yet, so it's probably best not to discuss it publicly; but one thing that is sure, for the next few weeks, I will just be a potter. I can't tell you how excited I am about this! The IPTOG was fine, as jobs go; but like any office gig, most of the time it felt like a distraction to my real calling.
Another reason I have not been blogging much: I have been potting! I have orders to fill and I have been making and glazing like a mad bastard. The photo above is through the window of my summer studio; I had to install more shelves to accommodate the additional ware.
In other news: I bought a laptop. I was astonished how cheaply one can be had. My original intention was for road usage, when I am out selling, but of course once I had it I had to go get a wireless router, so I can use it at home as well. In my experience, one piece of technology often leads inexorably to another.
Anyway, that's my news. What's new with you?

How exciting. Congrats on reaching the "quit your day job" milestone.

Congratulations on leaving your day job. I imagine it is a little unnerving, but I hope the other change you've referenced will help eliminate any of that.

Be well.

So very happy for you Lori! High five, woo woo and a somersault! I love it when you get what you always wanted. Sort of feels like you manifested it yourself. You go girl! Love, Peg
