Whether you’re already thinking about 2013 and are busy making plans, or you’re comfortable cruising along in 2012, content to deal with the next year when it gets here, my suggestion is that you take some time to assess and plan and refine what you want at this wonderful point where things are still malleable and full of possibilities. —Sherman Hall, Editor

So, whether your baby step is taken with a circle-cutting band-saw jig and some scrap counter top, or it’s an actual step through a gallery door, take it with confidence—with the knowledge that it only feels awkward because it’s your first, and that it will teach you something, and that it will get easier very soon. Bigger steps are right around the corner.

If you told someone it took you months to get that mug right, they may look at you as if they thought you were inept, and they might wonder why you would waste so much time at something you are clearly not very good at. Except that’s exactly how we get good, isn’t it? —Sherman Hall, Editor
