Happy April Fools Day!

I've been fooled a time or two in my life.
And I've been party to fooling others also a few times!

AND, I've been foolish too. But I don't think of myself as a fool.

I take some risks in life, but am more of a timid safety freak most of the time. The most adventurous thing I've done in the last 6 months was to quit the Mud Buddies and selling at the Tailgate Market each Saturday during the summer.  I definitely felt like I was jumping off a cliff into space, taking that leap that something would fill the space of my former small retail outlet.  But three hours a week of availability wasn't that much in the first place.

So far I've been slowly growing into new venues to sell my pottery.  Facebook has proven to be a good way to reach out and say, yes, I can make that for you. Or at least, yes, that's for sale.

So I hope you don't have many episodes of blushing foolishness today...but just remember that angels fly because they take themselves lightly!

Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
