Anxiety

I have been meaning to blog about this for quite a while, but initially it's not something I wanted to talk about and then as usual I never found the time. Back in May last year I started to suffer with chronic pains in my chest, but I was so busy with both studio's I...

An eventful one…

I hope you guys all had a great Christmas and New Year 😊. Mine was.... eventful (shock- not). I had a couple of weeks off thanks to the fabulous Nicola holding the fort, and it was really lovely to spend time with the kids as in the lead up to Christmas I hardly see...

Crazy Season

So crazy season is nearly over... hence why I’m managing to write my blog at 7am on a Saturday morning. This year has been much easier than last year with just one store to concentrate on, although still needing 13+hour days off very little sleep to process and paint...

The high’s and the low’s

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged as I’ve been hopping around like a headless chicken with my broken knee... I’ve been high and low this past month, it’s been a bit of a rollercoaster. I was sad and relieved to say goodbye to Prestwich, my saddest moments were...

Excellent Timing…

Yesterday I planned to do a post wishing everyone a happy Father's day and to say that I hoped all those lucky Daddy's loved their fabulous pottery that has been created in the studios. I'd not had chance to preplan a post as last week was just crazy busy trying to...
