Mud Mama Signing off

I've decided to take a bit of a vacation from blogging for a while. I think being a part of the Blogging Show last weekend was a good send off for me after posting stuff about my life and journeys with pottery and family over the last , I think, 4 years or so. ( I know someone going to correct me on that!)

Its only fitting that this Mom of three feels the need to down size my own obligations a bit more and give up some things. I do love blogging but think I could possibly post less often on my new website that my tech guy put together for me last year. I know I talked about it a bit but I never formally announced its completion because I felt like I had more to do on it. ( Which I still do!)

Below I have put the link to the site and hopefully without the destruction of my blog, I can focus on my website a bit more and also spend less time on the computer and more time with my kids and my pots.

To all my blogging buddies, don't give up on me! I still plan on checking in to see what everyone is up to. Who knows, I may be back on here at some point!

To all the Mud Mama's out there, please feel free to email me or drop me a note on facebook at any time. I'll still be making pots and multi-tasking homework,ballet and boy scouts along with firing kilns. Someone said to me the other day that as your kids grow up it doesn't really get easier, it just gets different. So true, so true! jenmecca@hotmail.com

If you'd like to see new images of my work from time to time along with posts about shows and events I'll be participating in, you can visit my website!


Happy Blogging everyone!

Jen, I enjoyed finding your blog, i love your work and I've loved seeing how you live through it.
I'll really miss the look in over your shoulder... It's been a really fun journey to watch.

Jen - I've enjoyed your blog & will miss your posts - but you are smart to focus on your kids. These computers are sure time wasters! Your website is fabulous. Good luck.

Oh NO!!!!! I will miss your words of wisdom soooo much!!! Maybe you could just pare down the blog to a once a month check in or something, I would hate to see you go away for good. I don't do/like Facebook, so I won't know what you are up to!!!!
Really though, I know there are always choices of things to give up when you have small kids, I gave up a CAREER! Best of luck with whatever you do, at least I know I will see your pots out there:)

You'll be missed. I'll still look for your new work and such. Enjoy your life and your family.

I've enjoyed reading your blog and hearing about your family, work, and teaching, and I'm so glad I met you in person in Charlotte. Hope you consider a once a month post update. Being isolated in a small town and then the RV blogs were and are my connection to potters. When I get back home end of the week I'll be scaling back on the blogs and making more work and going to art fairs, etc.

Please watch for my posts on my new website. Once I get it all organized, I'll put a post up about that.
Happy potting!
