A Terrible Confession Dear readers, I betrayed you by not posting when I said I would. I made it sound like I would post every week, without fail, but I failed to uphold that promise and your trust.

This week’s Artist’s Way was an exciting eye-opener. It felt like getting closer to seeing the top of the mountain as you climb it. For my artist’s date, I went to a ceramics studio and painted a bowl, which I am super excited to pick up this week!
