It's Me! I Swear!!

Dear Importance,

Living Life...Not necessarily in that order.

Although I post often, all the good stuff gets Friends only status. So If you REALLY Wanna know...add a friend. I'll friend ya back if ya drop me a note or if I happen to be paying attention that day.

I wanted to think of some clever things to say about myself but found that it sounded like a dating service advertisement. Instead, I thought of some words that might get you in my head:

Grass between the toes tickles your soul.
If I had my way, I'd be barefoot all the time.

Mudpies and Garden Hose Soup taste best if you don't really eat them. My children are my life. I may not spend as much time with them as I'd like to but they are my driving force. I want to show them how strong and successful I can be. They get it and they help me out as best they can. My four year old is my firestarter. My eight year old niece is the informer. My ten year old son is the innocent "didn't see a thing" By-stander. We have also welcomed my 15yr old step-daughter back into our home.

I left my position as an office manager to start my own faux finishing business back on Labor Day of 2004. By April of 2005 I officially Incorporated as Illustrations and Illusions, Inc. There's nothing easy about self employment. I am the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker.

I post here to vent. I post here to show off. I post here to take an occasional brain dump. I post my work. I post my life...not necessarily in that order.

Dream big but don't get lost on the way to get there. Stay the course and be strong. If you want something bad enough, you'll stop at nothing.

"To thine own self be true..."~ Shakespeare's Hamlet
Never forget where you've been. Never step on those who have helped you up. When you you find your path it is only because you have truly found your "self".

I've been a professional Clown, a Dancer, a Waitress, an
Office Manager and presently a successfully self-employed mother of four...

I build on the things that I do best and enjoy the results. Therefore I am presently on my path to success. Come and see!
