Every child wonders what they will be when they grow up. Some aspire to become inventors, doctors, millionaires or even the president.
I had “simple” dreams. Getting married, having kids and being happy. Money sounded like it was a good idea to have, and being a practical person I eventually decided that getting a real job was the best way to go about earning it.
Artist was never something I dreamed of becoming. I always considered myself to be creative and enjoyed arts n’crafts, jewelery making, painting, sewing, scrap booking. But they were all hobbies.

Growing up in the house of a professional artist probably had something to do with it 🙂 After earning a B.A. in Accounting & databases I needed to start looking for a steady job. I worked at a dead-end office job hoping to finish my licensing during my down-time and day off. Eventually I tried starting my own business with my husband. It failed but we learned a lot- about life, about business, about ourselves and gained some great new skills. After that I was ready to work for someone else again. I am too social to stay home all day and as cute as my kids are, I need adult interaction on a steady basis 😉
Coming home from those classes I was on such a high. I felt like the time I spent there was better than any therapy, pick-me-up, self-help I could get. Everyday I come up with a new project that I want to do. I can’t wait to finish the ones I have started. I hope you will join me for some of my next ones.
