EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON….

So today I decided it was time to put all I want out into the Universe! I have been told if you want it, visualize it..make is stare at you everyday until it becomes real! And so a  new art project is born!

Vision Boards are very much a thing of today. Just google “Creating a Vision Board”..and you will see how many links there are to get you started. First thing I had to do was really think about my business, my goals, my life and what do I need in front of me to inspire me every day! And so begins the googling, printing, searching, cutting, and tearing phase, almost there!

prep workNext step was to determine what size canvas I wanted (I chose 16 x20″ ) not to big, not too small! I decided to paint it red, with a little bit of texture and added color. I have always been drawn to red and I feel like it is my lucky color.Painted Canvas

 

My canvas is ready and all my papers are cut! Next job was to place it on the canvas so I can really start to visualize how it will all look and what will go where!placement picI am feeling good about what I have chosen, although I feel as though there may come a time where I will want to add more to it, and there is still plenty of room on my canvas for future inspirations! I remove it all and start gelling it down.  I love my quotes because they are really everything I believe in. The bottom line is be happy, be healthy, and keep moving forward! Even if something bad happens, it needed to happen for something else to take it’s place.

 

final result   my deskMy project is complete! I have hung it above my computer where most of my days are spent! I have done it! I have put it out to the Universe and now I get to see it, visualize it, and do everything in my power to make it real! Because I am an entrepreneur, there are no more excuses, and everything happens for a reason! Today will be the day….it all finally comes true!

Cheers!!

Bringing an old Business Idea back to life…my Story!

I had started a business so many years ago, than got preoccupied with Life! How is it that life can so easily interrupt your plans and your motivation to move forward? So I guess I put it on the back burner and now after many years and finally realizing I am a round peg trying to put myself into a square hole…I believe I need to create my own job rather than working for people and always realizing it is not what I want! I have decided to be true to myself and pursue my real passions…ART!

I have also always believed that with so much art out there….my art can find a place…can find someone who loves it..can become a business (small as it is….it can still become a business!)
I have decided to write this blog (learning that too!) to record my journey, the start of something. My trials and tribulations, my blood sweat and tears along the way..and hopefully a successful happy ending! Happy ending where you can say “dreams really do come true, and I have finally accomplished what I set out so long ago to pursue!”
I will let you know if I can say that sentence and breath a sigh of relief.
But not yet….first as with all things…we start at the beginning!
Welcome to my journey, my story!
