God has truly blessed me...

I can not believe how busy I have gotten since we got back from our cruise. I've been really paniced about bills and money. One going to college and two going into braces. Yikes! All of a sudden I have three huge murals going on and two really major design/marketing jobs going on, PLUS I'm trying to get an interview for a graphic design job. WOW! Can I possibly take on anymore? Probably....You see, I'm a JESUS Freak! That's right. I LOVE being busy. And God knows it. Yes, I'm tired. But the Lord has been so good to me - getting me all this work.
I was telling a friend of one of my clients today. I probably don't charge enough for my murals and I know I donate a lot of my services as a designer away too often, but IF I don't feel that I'm being taken advantage of, this is not mine to charge..this is God's gift to me. He has blessed me with beautiful children and a good roof over my head. My marriage has had it's challenges...but I do have a husband that has provided us with MORE than what we need. Yes I would love to have a 9-5 job and not all the little jobs that sometimes take up more time than what kind of pay I receive and YES the Lord wants me to be smart about my gift...everything I do is a life lesson. I have been doing more in marketing than I ever thought I would do. PLUS I've been asked to do some painting parties. YEAH!!!! Those are fun. An adventure that I would love to make more full-time if possible. Here are some of the projects I've been working on. If you like what you see - please pass my name onto anyone that you think would need my services. I'm always eager to take on new challenges and new clients. I love painting murals, I love designing logos and I love that God has given me this gift.

God Is Good!

July is here already? Summer? What Summer?

I know I feel like I'm repeating myself but wow this summer is flying by. Just got back from the Bahamas with my kids and wow...how awesome was that. I feel so blessed to be able to have had the chance to do this with my kids. They loved it! Alos, I'm actually swamped with major work. Not big buckes, but keeping busy. A couple murals and logo developments going on.And who would have thought I would be doing so much marketing. Although I don't have a degree in marketing I truly feel that with my experience with all the fundraising I've done and community projects I've got going on...yeah, I'm a great marketing/PR person. I LOVE people (for the most part) HA. But I do especially the hard working small business people - trying so hard to make a better life for themselves and for the their family. I met a new business owner this week. Gigi is her nickname and she has to be the most beautiful woman I've had the pleasure of meeting ever! She is originally from Egypt which I think is soooooo coooool. Those that have such a culture is so fasinating and I feel so fortunate to meeting and learn from. What an experience and opportunity. As I told Gigi..."Life is short - live it to the fullest" I NEVER want to look back and say, boy I wish I would have met her. OR I wish I would have talked to them or moved on that opportunity. So I fall on my face...I'll do it many more times in my life and so what. I tried. I made the jump and I at least can say...I took the chance...DID YOU?
