I've been doing lots of painting on pottery lately. It's very relaxing. Most crafts don't relax me; they usually stress me out. Like sewing, sewing stresses me out. Painting on pottery doesn't, which is probably why I decorated this little teacup for a dear friend's baby shower gift instead of sew her something. I thought about sewing a little "Baby Sleeping" sign for her door but that stressed me out so I didn't. I couldn't believe I found this teacup, actually. I wanted something small and pretty but plain and simple and not frilly, and then there it was on a Goodwill shelf. The glaze is cracked slightly but it doesn't go all the way through so I think we're good.
Did I ever tell you that I used to be a hand-letterer? Not like calligraphy or anything, but I used to do different types of lettering for different types of people. I even did a funky, custom alphabet for the inside of this Klutz book. It was a super fun gig.
I'm a doodler, too. Every piece of paper within a six-foot radius of me is covered with squiggles and triangles and loops and circles and squares. I've tried to be better about that though because I've ruined some important paperwork over the years. I haven't figured out a way to get paid for doodling yet but maybe someday I will. Until then, decorating pottery will suffice.
