I'm very much enjoying finding things to take extreme close ups of with my new camera and lens.  My favorite subjects are always found in nature.  There are not a lot of flowers blooming now.  We are officially in the heart of winter.  I've been running my kiln for the past two days, and I am enjoying the warmth it brings to my work shop.  I did a batch of coppr clay pieces yesterday, and today I'm using Sterling PMC pieces.  I really would like to find some time to play with the enamels again too.  I must set aside a day for it, as it is really time consuming.  But what a great excuse to sit in front of a 1500 degree kiln and enjoy the warmth! :)

I don't do New Year's Resolutions anymore.  But I've noticed that I still feel the necessity to get things handled that I've been putting off for awhile.  I think I told you all once I mentioned to a friend that I was anti social.  She immediately told me that I wasn't anti social, "you're just picky".  It is amazing that as well as you think you know yourself, there are still things that you still don't quite get.  I've been thinking about this a lot lately, and I have to admit once again that it's true.  I am picky.  I try to ignore things sometimes that don't meet my expectations, telling myself that I'm just being too picky.  But sometimes, you just need to realize that certain situations just aren't working for you.  And it's ok to let it go.  With so many demands on my time, I am forced to pick only the ones that really work for me.  And you know what?  Sometimes letting go feels reaalllyyy great!  :)


  1. Yep I agree, letting go gives a sense of peace for me. Wish it was cold here! I loooove cold weather. At least it's not as hot here as it Has been.... enjoy the cosy weather for me can you?? ♥

    1. I always think about you Em! When I am enjoying the cold you are sweating...when we are sweating you are enjoying the cold! :) It's nice to have a friend on the other side of the world!
