Andrew got back last night from a weekend away at Saranac Lake, getting the camp ready for Young Life campers this summer. He asked me if I had gotten my clay order together yet and when I would be ready to place it. I responded with an Oh, I don’t know. Andrew said let’s order it tomorrow…so tomorrow is here and I am going to finalize my order today and place it! Yikes! I am so glad he encourages me to keep making the next steps. This is the hardest part, I believe, about getting started on your own – you have to do it and be motivated to keep pushing forward to make the progress.
With that being said, I am determined to do so. Today, I am hoping to finally get my Esty account going so I can start selling my work…like this bowl here. I have been reading all of the “fine print” on the terms and conditions for using Esty, that is why it has taken me longer than expected. Also, since Andrew was away all weekend, we are taking the afternoon and spending it in Newington together. While we are out I think I might pick up some buckets to use for recycling clay, mixing glazes, and for storing raw materials. Aside from various cleaning that is on my list for the day, I am going to design my business cards and artist cards as well.
