Happy birthday to my blog!! It’s two years old!! And Thank You!!!!

When we started our adoption process, I was worried that I wouldn’t have time to make art, travel to workshops, and go to art shows, all the things that have been so important to me over the years.  Now that Vander has been in our lives for almost two years I wouldn’t trade it for the world.  I do have less time for everything that I mentioned.  But it is really worth it. I can’t wait for Vander to be old enough to be in my studio with me.  I’m always so envious of Jim Gottuso sharing what Sofia has made; I hope someday soon I will be doing the same. For now Vander loves to come down and paint my paint my table with water, he paints his ABC’s, Elmo, and Molly our dog and the cats. 

My blog has helped me with my wander lust; I have visited many artists’ studios, by interviewing them.  I have made many connections with other potters, had great conversations, and had people help me with problems that had. 

So thank you to everyone who has read and commented on my blog.  You are invaluable to me.  If I knew what an amazing tool I had at my finger tips two years ago, I would have never had been worried.  And thank you to all the potters out there who maintain a blog, you have been my inspiration!!!  You have given me many daily field trips that have been priceless, I love being able to travel the world at the click of a button.

    Hi Ang, thanks for the birthday wisshes. You’re one of the people I was thinking of when I wrote my birthday blog post. The terrible twos were ok, I hope the terrible threes go just as well. Cheers!!

    Happy (blog) birthday! Being a mom is the best! Now that my (adopted) son is in college – I look back to those years that zoomed by — some of those days I longed for my studio or I would finally get back there and totally forget what I was working on — but I wouldn’t trade being a mom for anything! Vander is one lucky kid to have you! And we are all fortunate you have kept up your blog! :) )

    Judy, Thank you so much for your super sweet words!!! That somice to know that you adopted your son as well. I know these years will go by so fast. But I still wish I didn’t need to sleep. I get by with very little as it is.

    I enjoy your blog and blogging too, you have great interviews and your blog inspires me. I can just see Vander making things in clay very soon.
