Day 10 – A Vase A Day Keeps The Anxiety Away

Update: lockdown has been extended to at least month end

We are restricted to our household bubble and trips for essential items only. Thankfully groceries and garden centres are still open (at reduced capacity). Hopefully this will be enough to combat the variants that are the most common COVID-19 here at this time.

Continuing to pull from how pottery has helped my PTSD, my plans to help manage the stress and anxiety are simple: I will be making a new vase for each day of this two week lockdown.

Or at least that is the plan.

I aim to continue updating this post each day with my latest lockdown vase!
