First off, a friend of mine wants me to design invites, etc. for her little girl's 3rd birthday party. Projects like these always make me so happy because it is pure creative freedom and FUN! We are going to work together to create her event, but unfortunately I won't be able to stage it for her. It will be fun to see how it all comes together. I will also have my son's birthday party coming up. He informed me months ago that his 6th birthday will be Huskers and everyone will have to wear black or red!
Another friend of mine will soon be moving back into her home, post-flood. She wants me to help her decorate...which also means SHOP! After talking with her (and knowing her) I've decided that she needs an all natural, soothing enviroment with a twist of bohemian! What a great challenge! I have been getting a lot of people hinting that I should decorate for them. I feel a little silly because I am certainly not a trained interior designer but I do enjoy it nonetheless.
Probably the most exciting news as of late is that my paintings are going to get public exposure for the first time in a retail setting. Well, not really 'retail' but they will adorn the walls of a new patisserie/cafe in town. The majority of my pieces are not only decor for the new business, but will be available for sale! I am so blessed that Shanda and Patrick from Sweet & Flour Patisserie have given me this opportunity and my paintings no longer have to sit all alone in the corner of my basement!
