Hearing many times to make your job your passion or find something you love doing and try to make money at it, well sounds easy enough but shopping, painting or baking cookies(really?) How i could make money at that. I didnt realize what that meant or how to do it. I started off going to school to be a Nurse, then a School Teacher and all the while not totally thrilled about it,but figured i was suppose to go to College and get a degree make everyone proud my husband, kids, parents & friends all the while sitting in class wishing I was home with my kids or feeling guilty for not going on a field trip or so worried about who was going to make the cupcakes for the classroom party and knowing i would need to study myself. Well in this joureny what i realized was What i absalutely loved the most was creating, either cupcakes for the school (trying to make them the most unique the class ever got), or bringing snacks for Cheer and wanting the snacks to be packaged so cute that everyone would remember them or finding that piece of dirty, worn furniture & fixing it up with paint, stuffing, fabric and standing back to see the results, well that is what i get so excited over each and everyday. Sometimes what you Love Most is right in front of you and you dont even know it.
So with that said, I found a way to sell my creations my fixer ups, my loves that i become so attatched to at a little shop called Melange, i started small scared nobody would like my stuff, then moved to two spaces always longing for more space,& then moving across the street to Not Too Shabby where i grew bigger and learned more. Well i have found this Passion, this Love for re-finishing,creating, making and sharing ideas so much that i really needed to be on my own & opportunity came up for me to do so..
So My Words to live by are find what you truly love, what truly makes your heart skip a beat, what makes you not sleep at night because your so excited to get up to do it, AND then (Make what you love most, What you do Everyday!)...
After 7 years of part time college,thousands in fees,books I finally found what I love the most..
