Hello all you wonderful card makers out there!  It’s been forever and a day since I’ve posted anything here. Over a year. ☹️  You see, my life changed a lot in June of 2017. I was teaching painting as a part of a paint night party company based here in the Maritimes and they approached me to become a licensee owner where I live. So I bought into the company and now run a small but rather successful art party business.  It’s been a heck of a lot of hard work with some stressful moments but things are going quite well. I’m currently in the beginning of my busy time so I’ve got paint night events happening every week sometimes even two or three a week. I’ve got a staff of two other artists that help me with events though.  When I’m not busy online promoting, advertising or making Facebook posts I’m painting new subject matter for events.  And then there’s regular everyday family life.  So, unfortunately, cardmaking has taken a backseat to all that.  In fact I barely ever make a card any more. Which kind of makes me sad.  I miss it but I just haven’t been able to find enough time to get back into it. I am hoping to make some Christmas cards though soon as I still can’t bring myself to buy them.  LOL!

So, while I don’t have any cards to share perhaps I wil share some paintings I’ve done for my little business. 🙂

This is me with some of my regular customers at a recent event.

Well,  that’s all I can share today. Sorry, it has took me so long to post here again. Hopefully, I’ll be able to again soon and share a card or two.  Have a lovely day!
