For me, indulgence often takes the form of working, just not working on what I'm supposed to be doing. Instead of working only on orders I need to fill, I took some time last night to play around with exploring a new technique I want to develop. The photo above is the first example. I like the softness in it, and I will explore it further. When I have time. Right now? It's back to filling orders that are 1. real! 2. right now! 3. money is certain! 4. need to be there in time for Mothers Day!
Guess I'd best get this purring kitten off my lap and crack the whip on myself a bit.
This is going to link from my (under construction) website, and it already is linked to my flickr photo sets which show new work and old, stories of the glamorous life of a working "maker of pretty things," and whatever else I feel like sharing. I suspect galleries will check in from time to time to see what is in the pipeline, my friends and family will check in to see why I haven't been calling, and whoever else stumbles across it will suffer through photos of a beloved rascal of a kitten and my talented and industrious worker-bees. Because I am most in love with the ordinary aspects of life they will be well represented. I will try to hold back on my proclivity for over-sharing, but who knows? A proclivity is a proclivity. Welcome to my world!
