Last week I received a letter in the mail from the North Carolina Arts Council letting me know I had been nominated to the Southern Artistry website.
At first I did not give this much thought and set the letter aside.
When I did go online and take a look at the site I thought this might be a bit bigger then my first thought.
I spent today working on a bio and up loading some pictures.
What I found was that it is hard to do a bio and not include my better half.
We are a team around here and there are things we just could not get done without the support of one another.
I know many of you work alone and there are times I wonder what that would be like.
I don't wonder that because I want to work alone.
I just wonder how you all get it all done.
After a tour of the website I thought to myself really they want me up here, no kidding.
It is nice to have someone reconize you for the work you have done in clay.
With the exception of a part time job here or there we make our living from clay.
So with that said, I am surprised, humbled and honored to have been nominated.
I also want to say thank you to those clay workers and others who are out there sharing and supporting each other with their blogs and blog post comments.
I don't know how I/we would have made it through the fire and the past year plus without the encouragement of others.
No one gets to where they are alone.
I am much better today then yesterday.
My tooth was fixed up very well by my dentist and life goes on.
Tomorrow we are fixing to glaze, it is time to get back on the horse and ride.
