It's been my daily challenge: To balance the desire to have a profitable business with the desire to make work that has meaning to me and brings joy.
I used to say that my work is labor-intensive. But no longer. Yes, it does take such a long time to make each piece, but it's really an act of love, not labor. By reframing it, I can rest in each moment of making and know that I'm on the right track.
This year's "Mug-Mania & More" will offer a variety to shoppers – including new mugs, yarn bowls, vases, vessels and even some ornaments and jewelry. I hope you'll check it out!
