A Dream Come True

I've always wanted to start my own business doing the things I love the most; painting, drawing and crafting. I'm an artist at heart, but to tell you the truth, I didn't know where to start or how to begin my career as an artist because I was afraid to even consider it. I think I was afraid to hear from other people that I wouldn't make it or your dream's not a dream.

But I did it!!! After 6 months of planning and designing with the help from friends, I finally opened my first store!!! If you get a chance, please visit and look around - here.

Right now, I'm only displaying the canvas art, but I will be creating more artwork including water color painting and pop art using photography. All of my artwork will be created by hand and made to order!!! I'm still nervous, but I hope I can make many people happy giving the beautiful creation.

I want to thank Dionne for always cheering me on and making me believe I could do this. I am forever grateful!!!

Elizabeth, thank you so much for your kindness and love you've showen me! Thank you so much!!

And to all of you who have supported my blog - I know I haven't been doing a good job of posting new entries, but I hope I can get back on track and share my life and new adventure with you!!!

Wish me luck!!!
