I never thought of myself as a creative person. Growing up, if the teacher said during art class, “draw what you wish…use your imagination”, I would panic. My drawing usually ended up being a tree with the sun in the corner…right? Not sure my tree even had branches. It was more a round bush on a thick base. Same situation when we were assigned a science project… grow mold in a Petri dish, create the solar eclipse, or invent a new product that could change the world! What? Is this really my job in 7th grade? Will anyone really give me credit for the invention of a lifetime? I still ponder these questions, late in the night….
When I married and had my own home, I began to experiment in the kitchen and realized how much I enjoyed tweaking a recipe and entertaining. I realized how much I loved rearranging things in my home, refinishing furniture, arranging flowers, and organizing anything and everything. I learned that I love order and creating a beautiful space. I learned that I love helping women make decisions when we shop together. I began to realize I was asked a lot about my style and my opinion on their style. I realized how easily I could make a decision and that I knew exactly what I liked. I realized I could certainly see what looked best on a particular figure and suggest others styles when necessary. This is a gift, I realized. I have not been schooled, I have God given talents. I have skills and I am creative. What????!!!!
This was all considered when I made the decision to start my business and I have never looked back. I have had such fun and I have certainly loved helping a woman confidently walk into a room, walk down the aisle of a wedding, walk into a boardroom, or make her entrance at a special event. I love helping a woman discover her style and embrace her style. I am satisfied only when she is satisfied.
This was all birthed after seeing a quote over and over and realizing it was for me. The quote was, “If not now, when?” I had seen it several times and really loved all that it spoke to my own soul. I was at a point in life where my creative self had seemed to stall and I wanted self fulfillment. I knew many things I liked to do and knew where my strengths were. I also just began to listen. Sometimes, the quieter we are, the louder the true voice speaks.
When you work with me as a client, I can assure you I will not “create” a tree that looks like a round bush on a thick base….and I certainly will not put you, the “sunshine” up in a corner! You will shine and stand out wherever you may go! You will walk proudly and with a new confidence and I will be amazed because, once again I have painted a beautiful canvas…
