I’m sitting on a comfy hotel bed, sipping coffee, and putting together this post while the morning sun streams in the window. It’s a beautiful-looking day in South Jersey, and in a few minutes I’ll be heading down to my spacious work space at this year’s Clayathon.
I hope you’ll forgive the brevity in this introduction, as I’m eager to put down the laptop and get back to the clay!
So, what is This Week in Pictures?
It’s a roundup of the microblogging I’ve done on Instagram all week. This includes photos I shot for Project 365 (the theme for 2018 is mornings: #myyearofmornings2018) and any other extra images I may have posted.
Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…
365 📱: #myyearofmornings Feb 10 – Just hanging out in the Grease Monkey lobby with @ecedgeworth, learning more about college basketball than I really care to know. [Taken at Grease Monkey.]
365 📱: #myyearofmornings Feb 11 – I was in the mood for a long drive this morning, so I put on my new mix CD and took off in pursuit of adventure. What I found was a new-to-me Trader Joe’s, followed by a gigantic Whole Foods. So, I basically spent my Sunday morning driving and food shopping, but it was much more fun than it sounds like 😁
Instagram 📱: – If you need me, I’ll be right here, enjoying a little #hygge.
365 📱: #myyearofmornings Feb 12 – Every time I look up from what I’m working on, I contemplate what new doo-dads I should make for my cubicle this week when I’m at #clayathon2018. I’m thinking more pens. And maybe some magnets. Possibly a few push pins… I’m getting excited for the #clayathon, can you tell? 😁 [Taken at work.]
Instagram 📱: – Monday night: Buckwheat tea and biscuits, Granny’s cup and saucer 😊
365 📱: #myyearofmornings Feb 13 – I wonder how many different angles I can photograph this behemoth of a coffee machine from before it starts to look like I’m phoning it in 😁 [Taken at work.]
Three on a Theme 📷: Theme: Valentine’s Day – SweetTarts from my sweetheart 💗
365 📱: #myyearofmornings Feb 14 – This morning I have time before work for some picture taking, so how about I show you those finished bathroom washcloths? I used a different stitch pattern for each. They will supplement my old knit cloths nicely, I think 😊
Instagram 📱: – I’m packing for #clayathon2018 and each year I try to travel as light as possible. I took this picture and was all set to declare victory when I noticed something: there’s no clay in this pile. Could you imagine how annoyed I’d be if I got there and realized I’d forgotten to bring clay?? 🤣
365 📱: #myyearofmornings Feb 15 – Before I go to work, a little bit of packing for my trip
365 📱: #myyearofmornings Feb 16 – My table mates haven’t set up their work areas yet, but I’m ready. Now for the hardest part: figuring out what to make first 😁 [Taken at the Clayathon.]
Instagram 📱: – I started with pens 😁. A batch of dark colors, and a batch of bright colors, both ready for the oven. There are at least two more batches in my immediate future. But first, lunch! [Taken at the Clayathon.]
Instagram 📷: – When you forget how to make your own design and have to read your own tutorial to figure it out 😁 [Taken at the Clayathon.]
