Do you have the Shiny Object syndrome?

Do you have the Shiny Object syndrome?

 Try as I might, I can’t stop.  I’m continually thinking of ways to improve, advance, explore, and try new ideas.  It’s just exciting!!  The shiny object floats past my vision, enters my mind, and I can’t stop until we’ve tried the idea, product, etc.

Organic farm inspires Detroit Artist to new levels!

Green Things Farm.  An organic farm in Ann Arbor.  5.5 miles from my home, so close that I could ride my bike~ and I often did.  (Until the summer heat reminded me to lighten up a bit!)  I work 2 days a week, 4 hours each day and I’ve learned a TON.  Most of which is the importance of buying food from your local farmer.

Let's Talk About Mugs!

I really try to make one-of-a-kind mugs for the gallery so that people can see all the possibilities that are available. Color is the biggest component. After that the shape of the mug and volume are determined. The handle is really important because a nice proper sized handle makes a comfortable mug. The foot or the bottom of the mug is a decision as well and having 6 or 7 different styles in the gallery makes it easy to decide.
The sometimes lonely path of the independant small business owner

What Keeps Me Awake at Night

For me, one of the things I notice that there is always a daily growth opportunity should I choose to take it.  As the owner you don’t what the day brings, but whatever it does, it’s yours to deal with.  Perhaps the toilet will break, the class will need to be cancelled due to bad weather, or the color we need for a specific job is sold out.  This wasn’t on today’s agenda, now what?  Game on! An opportunity for new growth!!
