Throwdown Thursdays have been created half because my Thursdays are always turbulent for some unknown reason, and half to vent about my pottery frustrations.
Today was not the worst in terms of turbulence. I took my dad to the doctor and got my Etsy sale sent off. This past week (and well, 2 months) have been spent studying for this dang GMAT and with less than two weeks I am a stress ball. I spent last night at Jesse’s grandparent’s house, we had a lovely time, but I was also pulling my hair out about my practice test results (which Jesse keeps telling me were great but I think they were bad… but maybe since he’s better at this stuff i’ll trust him.)
ANYWAYS. Pottery. Pottery fails all around today. Very frustrated. And it rained so nothing is drying.
Currently I have taken the day off to study for my GMAT. That’s right, i’m thinking about going back to school. I’ve been out a year now and have gone through every wave of emotion one could go through in that post-grad-unfabulousness. I am still ridden with anxiety but i’m going to trek on and try for an MBA within the next year or two.
I’ve also taken the day for some much needed pottery time both in craft and in preparation. I have a renewed sense of confidence stemming directly from the fact that I woke up yesterday morning to find that I made another Etsy sale! (to someone other than someone I know!!!) I’m just a little bit excited. 😉
On the topic of Etsy, the featured image here on this post is one of my favorite lil’ mugs to date. I made the palm tree mug a couple months back and it is one of the few mugs that emerged from the kiln EXACTLY how I envisioned it. I was sure someone would snatch it up quickly, but I have been wrong so today I used it to test some potential photography backdrops in my backyard, because lord knows my Etsy photos are lacking and i’m anxious to re-photograph all my pieces in the future.
If you like the palm tree mug, it is available for purchase here: Etsy.com/shop/Blumme
Have a happy Wednesday!
