I was asked by Coyotewoman for a little intro, so here it is.
I found your community while browsing on LJ and thought I'd join since I'm curvey and pretty cute!
I am a potter by trade and also teach belly dance classes in the evenings and those two jobs keep me pretty busy all year round. My jobs are quite physical, artistic and creative which suits me well. I could never have survived the office atmosphere long, which I did sample many times in my life. I'm finally okay with being an artist! (Artist or musician was a dirty word in our house that meant "no retirement plan, nothing to fall back on." It was once predicted that I would become a "bag lady" by the time I was 50!) I also love to create costumes for belly dance, but sadly there seems to be little time for that these days.
Tonight is my last belly dance class then there is a break for the summer. I've hosted 3 parties for students and had some of my students dance in two big belly dance shows this past week. They did an amazing job and had so much fun! Thank goodness I now get a little break from dance. I have a big show coming up at my home studio this weekend, so I'm busy firing the kiln and getting my shop looking nice.
In early July I'll be a part of a huge pottery exhibition called 1001 Pots in Val-David, Québec (Canada), which is just a couple of hours drive from home. This month long pottery exhibition is my 2nd and I look foward to what this year brings!
