Also, direct your attention to the pop of green pottery in a few of my photos! My 10 year old wants to be a potter. She's been taking private lessons this summer. We are so blessed to have such great teachers in the area.
My girl has decided that she wants to buy her own pottery wheel. She found the one she wanted, It's $ 650. We are talking about a girl that when she gets money she has to spend it almost immediately. I've been looking for the thing that I could use to help her learn a lesson in saving for what you want.
My deal serves me as well. I can't lie. I've always loved pottery, and I've always wanted to try it out. I told her if she save $ 300 by Christmas, I'd buy the other half for her Christmas present. She's going to have to teach me how to use the darn thing, but I have great visions of making pottery. In particular little dishes that can be used for holding jewelry.
Her Dad doesn't think she can do it. And told her so. I didn't like that. I want to teach her that if she wants something bad enough she can do what it takes to earn it.
She already has it figured out where we can put the wheel. Looks like I'm going to lose my shipping desk to a pottery wheel in my shop....She has $ 120 saved. I'm really proud of her. I think she'll make it!
