2015 was an adventure for me on all fronts.
On the work front, I had 3 different managers and many of my co-workers who I'd worked very closely for the past 9 and a half year left. But I did celebrate my 10 years working of the same company this past October. Guess that's a great accomplishment.
On the volunteering front, I worked on 2 different websites (actually one is still in the work and should go live soon). One of them is for the Miata club, which the club organized a big invitation event back in August and I did the website for the registration. The other one is for the pottery club, where the club is in the process to migrate the existing website to a new server and at the same time the website was redesigned using WordPress. The migration is almost done and I am hoping to get it all up and running in the next 48 hours or so.
We went away twice last year too. We had a winter escape for a week in April and then we had a fall escape to South Africa for 3 weeks back in November/December.
On the pottery front, I missed my first ever Christmas sale since I joined the Guild. The sale happened while I was in South Africa. Luckily I was able to show my work at a couple of stores in Ottawa. I might not have updated my blog much this year, but I managed to produce around 70 pieces. I tried new style for mugs with new glaze.
