Finally I'm getting a bit of a breather from my wedding business demands. The contracts are written so I don't have paperwork calling my name every Monday morning. I'm still meeting with bridal couples, (already planning weddings for next summer!) but the bulk of the office work is done for now. I'm temporarily stocked up in the inventory department and my baking schedule is lighter this week with only tiny little wedding cakes instead of five tiered baking demands like last week.
So.... I got me a little time in my dusty (and once again cob-web coated) clay studio today.
And since it was a leisurely summer afternoon, Samuel's fondest wish finally came true. He's been haunting my studio for years, making little handbuilt pieces and playing with the pottery wheel's functions, dreaming of throwing some pottery but the time had not yet come. It was Mom's space and she had work to do. She didn't need kids invading and messing up the system.
The boy was pretty happy with himself.
So, a couple hours in the pottery studio yielded some good clay fun.
A nice change from sugar, butter and eggs.
