Custom frames and wreaths

I discovered some time ago that I enjoyed painting custom frames for my own memories and giving them as gifts. I also began making custom wreaths for my front door and supplying them for my entire family as well! This sparked the fire in my little brain- it inspired me to see if I could create a demand for these items in the market and perhaps sell them as a side business of my very own.

Of course, all of this is new to me and I am working to improve my shop, create more items, and post things in a manner that is appealing. The photos are proving to be my downfall at the moment.

I work a full time job 5 days a week, am currently redoing a home that we moved into a year ago that is still deocrated from the 50s, and with 4 pets, things can get a little hectic. My time tends to disappear very quickly!

Anyway- here are some of my newest pieces for the St. Patty's Day and Easter holidays. More to come as soon as possible.

Puppy Love

So 5 months ago, I indulged in a dream I had always had. I bought a golden retriever. He is the best dog and he makes me laugh every single day! My boyfriend decided that he wanted a dog of his very own as well. We now have a pit bull- Rocco and Brinkley. They are inseparable as you can tell from the photo.

We also have 2 cats and fish. Quite the family right?!

Life as a Project Manager

I work in a government office at Fort Lee, VA. The boss turned 50 this week and I spent my morning on Tuesday blowing up 50 black balloons and decorating his office. He was quick to tell me that payback would be sweet when I turn 30 this winter. He loved every second of it!

Fresh Start!

I recently decided to start trying to sell my crafts online at etsy.com. In an effort to get my name and business out, I decided to start a blog to chat about my ideas, my thoughts, my life. I hope that I can intrigue others and bring them into my world and that I will learn some interesting tidbits along the way.
