Goodbye January. Hello February….!! Without doubt, January is the darkest month. And it’s not only the absence of light but lack of cash, cold weather and general mean-spritedness of the first month that really gets us down. I often wonder why do we make life even less enjoyable with dry-january, veganuary or even janu-hairy …???
Even so, there’s a spirit of optimism about January that I love. Do you remember those heady days after new year when anything seemed possible? Change was in the air and we all felt inspired to to do better, to be better and challenge ourselves in new ways in 2019.
New year resolutions come but once a year. However, starting out on a new challenge or trying something new can happen at any time. Last year, I had the opportunity to try something new right at the end of 2018. By chance, I was asked to promote my book ‘Silver Clay Workshop’ on Jewellery Maker TV.
Now, I’m very confident at teaching classes, I feel comfortable with my subject and love making jewellery. But live TV was something completely new to me. I’ve learned the only way to get started is to say yes, and take the first step… I wasn’t quite sure what I was doing but on the big day it went well and guess what? They’ve asked me back…!
So, as I write I’m excitedly planning out two more projects I’ll be presenting on live TV on Monday 18th February. If your interested, either tune in live to Jewellery Maker TV via one of your freeview channels or pop over to You Tube where all the shows are recorded.
If you’ve decided to try something new this February why not have a look and learn about silver clay…!!
I’ll be appearing on live Jewellery Maker TV at 9.00am and 12.oopm Monday 18th February 2019.
