A fresh start...

Four years ago today I was realizing a lifelong dream, opening my own business. Then 3 weeks ago I had to close that same business. A difficult decision however I truly believe it was the right one and at the right time. I will value all that I learned and treasure the friends that I made for many years to come and for that, I am grateful.
With that said, I make a fresh start with this new blog.
I've taken advantage of my absense, filling my days with moving my creative space, spending more time with my grandchildren, trying a new creative outlet and well, you get the picture, I've been busy.
A bit to share today...

My first's a whole new process working with something this small. I enjoyed the process more than I thought I would and have made 6 more. I will be sharing them during the month.
The best part about having more time...

Gabriel, can you say mischievous?

Hannah, smart as a tack and just as prissy!

As with most siblings, they have their issues but most of the time, these two are the best of friends.

Tyler, growing up way too fast.

They love hanging out together, especially at Granny's.

Yard sale the piano stool I got for $5 and the rusted welcome bucket was only a $1. Using the small wood crates for storage in my new creative space, the long one is perfect for holding my envelopes.
Just a few of the things keeping me busy these days. This week I've been preparing for the show I'm attending on Saturday and next week I'll be occupied with the final details for our family reunion which is being held at my dad's October 9th through 12th. So looking forward to seeing everyone. We have family coming from California, Vermont, New York, Maryland and South Carolina. Last year I took over 300 photos!
Hope you are enjoying beautiful fall weather where you are.
Have a wonderful day.
Be back soon.
