Happy New Year.
None of us know what 2023 will bring, lets hope it’s good, but I do know it’s time for me to make some changes in my creative endeavours. I think I have reached a time in my life to take things more slowly and I’ve made the decision that because of the problems I’ve been having with my hands I will make less ceramic pieces and go back to my first loves which were painting and textiles. I have had a yearning to spend time doing some fibre arts for a while but so far it hasn’t happened due to other commitments.
I’m looking forward to finding the time to explore new pastures, I have been out of my creative groove for a while now . It’s not unusual for me to change media, but most of my makes since becoming a self employed crafter has been “kiln fired”. I think I have become stuck in a rut so hopefully a change will rekindle my enthusiasm for making.
If all goes to plan things will have changed over completely in the next 12 to 18 months, but I’m not putting pressure on myself, I’m just going to take it a day at a time and see what happens. My Etsy shop will remain open next year.
I was gifted this beautiful year planner for Christmas, I will document my journey in it. There are so many new things to try, old techniques to revisit, books to read, techniques to learn and courses to do. I’ll keep you up to date with how it goes.
I hope 2023 is kind to you all and it brings you much love and peace.
A new phase in life is exciting Jill. I’m feeling the same way. I’m looking forward to your postings as you navigate a new path.
