It's been a busy week with preparation for the exhibition job at work that one of my colleagues and I have been curating, organizing and finally setting up. This is an exhibition called "CRAFT" that presents various craft work by a selection of art makers who we support at Henshaw's Arts & Crafts Centre. With help from my fellow colleague with much of his skills (thanks al!), we have done a pretty good job I think. For me this was the first time to do such a job at work, so it was very refreshing and left me a kind of sentimental feeling, too. The CRAFT exhibition is on now until Sunday 18th July. Those who may be around this area, please do call in. It is looking great!
Hence, I know this is a bit of excuse but I was not able to keep up with the e-course I am doing. I have got quite a few topics that I need to read up. However, I must say this, it has been fantastic. First of all, I got this blog started because of the course input. Then I (Yes, me! very shy Maki!) have been expanding my network through the course. This sense of connection has been just amazing! A totally new experience. We encourage each other and accept our vulnerability at the same time. I feel much more stronger, positive and truly honest to myself day by day. This is great. For that, I want to say thank you here, for those who looked at my blog and commented to me. It’s been a good start for me because of you!
Today my husband and I were working hard to establish the entrance area between the house and my pottery studio-to-be. Last year we got flooded the area badly so we’ve decided to make a sump along the way prior to planting anything. Digging the soil wasn’t that easy as you think, oh it was hard work! It is still a long way to go until I actually utilise the studio, but I felt an achievement at the end of the day. One of my close friend told me before, “when you do have lots of jobs to do, set a small goal. Each time you reach to the small goal, celebrate it. Otherwise you will never enjoy the result of endless jobs.” Indeed. (By the way I completed painting the stairs today! So I felt as if I got a bonus!)
