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!!

BUILDING A BUSINESS IS A LOT OF WORK!!

The Social Media highway is often difficult to navigate on, one must constantly remember to post on all avenues, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin..am I missing any?

SOCIAL MEDIA STORM IN MY BRAIN!

It’s not only the challenge of remembering to post..but what will you post? How can my 0.5 hundredth of a second in your feed catch your attention. Enough that you will look at it, like it, and answer my prayers and “Share” it?? Is it too much to ask? At the end of the day, I am just trying to build my business, find people who will be interested in my products outside of my family and immediate friends. While I am eternally grateful for their financial support and interest, the real test it all the people on the Worldwide web…where are those customers? I watch podcasts, and follow Social Media Guru…and try and be creative and interesting…but am I? One day at a time, be patient, it will all come…that is what I keep telling myself! As we approach the end of 2014, I have learnt a lot about myself on this most interesting journey. I am finally being “True to who I am” and going after my long desired dream! Creating, and working with people for both customized art, and one of a kind hand painted Journals and day timers. Painted, dirty – goopy, hands = happy hands!! Happy Hands = Incredibly Happy Person!! (That would be me!)

Here’s to 2015. To the challenge of the build, the excitement of the growth, and the celebration of doing what you love every day!

Cheers & always remember to “Embrace the Journey!”
