Feelings Of Thanks, Feelings Of Sadness…

If you follow my social media accounts on Instagram and Facebook, you would know that we recently lost our dear Mum.

Its  been an extremely hard time for us since April, when we found out my Mum was so unwell. Trying to function like nothing was going on behind the scenes to the world was so hard, but it had to be done. There was only a handful of people who knew what was going on behind the scenes, and I thank those people dearly for their support.


I’ve had good days and bad days, and days where I just can’t get my head into work/creating. Those are the days I feel defeated the most. I’m trying to get on top of all of my orders right now, and I thank you all tremendously for your patience with me through this.

My creative mojo is coming back, more and more each day, and while I have many feelings of thanks to you all, there is still feelings of sadness. This time is for our family to nurture each other’s hearts, our heads and our spirits.

Each day is a new day, and I go into it with no expectations at all.  I wanted to thank you all again for your messages of support, prayers and hope. You are all stars ✨

    and I think this is a such a beautiful and positive way to view our feelings after the loss of someone special.
    In time, in my experience, the love-part gets stronger and louder and grief-part quieter.
    Thank you sharing your making, I hope bringing joy to others with your ceramics helps you continue to find joy in the giving. I am looking forward to unpacking my custom stars soon.
    Thinking of you, from Amanda.

  • This too shall pass. When my son passed it took a good 6 weeks before I was able to start filling orders for my customers. Taking time for yourself and your family right now is the most important thing you can do. While the pain never completely goes away it does become easier to bear. I’m sure your sweet Mum is watching over you all.

    Prayers and Blessings for you and your family.

    • Thank you. I’m so so sorry to hear of your son. It’s such a horrible time. So many memories and emotions flood back at the slightest thing.
      I hope you’re doing ok now. Sending love.
