More about what I do

I am an interpretive artist who will create a memorable piece of art for you "live" at your special occasion. I specialize in creating a unique, one of a kind, colorful interpretive pastel (3ft x 5ft) to the music of your choice during your special event. This can be done during your special song, your special dance or at just the perfect moment for your unique memory and finished on location in approximately an hour. There are many uses for reprints of this one of a kind personal touch to your special day. Your print can be reproduced in many different sizes to accommodate your needs for thank you notes, or prints (framed or unframed) for special guests, family members or wedding members to be given at a later date. This is a very personal touch for someone who deserves the very best in remembering their most precious day or moment in their lives. These drawings can be done at any special day you'd like to have captured in a piece of art - here are a few suggestions:

Weddings/Receptions Anniversary Parties
Engagement Parties Birthday Parties
Any and all events that warrant a unique remembrance!

For Consultations or appointments, send me a message and I'll be glad to speak with you further!!

OK, I think I'm on a roll....

Maybe there really IS always a silver lining. :)

My 2 day low grade fever forced me to stop. I had places to go from Monday night through today-

Monday night - Supper with Matthew

Tuesday morning - West Michigan Prayer Center Meeting
Tuesday afternoon - Lunch with the girls from the Tuesday morning meeting
Tuesday evening - attempt to make some things for the craft show Saturday
Wednesday - Kaden Day!!

Wednesday evening - trip to Holland with my best friend
Thursday - work at the office
Thursday night - Supper with Matthew (rescheduled from Monday)


So, while I've been limply laying in my bed, I've had time to think. I realized this is running from one thing to another with never enough time to really do anything just craziness and I have to come up with a plan. I can't just run around like a crazy woman. I need to be a crazy woman with a schedule and a plan :)

I thought about the things I want to do, and the things I need to do and thought about how I could fit the two together. I realized there were scheduled things that I had no choice in, like the Tuesday morning meeting, and other things that I plain need to find time to do like make things for craft shows. So I thought of which days are already full, which ones aren't, what days would be best for what. I opened an excel spreadsheet and made myself a chart and filled it in! Woot! I even scheduled free time :)

Now, I know that actually implementing this will be the hard part but it's kinda cool to have a plan and a tool. It will take time to find out if this is the right tool for the job and if I can learn how to handle the tool.

I printed out a copy - on lavender paper :) - and tacked it to the wall :D
And all because I got a chance to stop and think :D

Oh - and here's a drawing for this post as promised
