Starting this year off with some wonderful pieces! Lets take a quick look at 11 beautiful custom/ available furnishings we had in January.
In December I had ask what my fellow fans wanted to see more of, going into 2017. The answer was simple, “available pieces to be purchased”. I am trying to do just that! Second Chance Charms is mostly busy with custom client projects and every now and then I will find pieces at garage sales and swap pages that I will jump on. I always put them up on In the Studio for anyone looking for an item that they can customize to their home decor. What I am doing differently is not letting them sit for too long. I have been refinishing them up the way I see fit and posting them up for sale on Shop Selections.
For January I refinished three pieces that I really enjoyed. I got to put my heart and soul out there on display. Most times I am recreating a vision that my client has. I do my best each and every time with my returning clients and new client projects. However, with these three pieces I got to create what I envisioned. I must say it was exhilarating! Remember my New Years Journey for 2016? Inhale confidence. Exhale doubt. I created something I loved and put it out there for acceptance. I got lots of LOVE from social media. I couldn’t be happier! Looking forward to putting more pieces out there for purchase.
To stay informed on the newest of pieces that are for sale I have created a “First Dibs Email”. Stay with me as I figure out all the bugs, in the meantime if you wish to be apart of this group you can sign up here: First Dibs Email.
People don’t do anything until they are inspired. But once they are inspired there is almost nothing they will not do.
I want to share with you a little bit about my New Years Journey for the 2017 year and what has been happening as of late, if you can recall it was about Inspiration. Inspiration comes in all different forms, but what I want to focus on is to inspire others. Spend time lifting others in there successes. Empower each other with our knowledge. Support one another in all the good that has been achieved. Embrace the love that God has for each and every one of us, as we all are important.

This month I attended a seminar with Matthew Kelly hosted by my parish. Some very amazing special gals in my life were in attendance. Matthew had many words of encouragement pertaining to personal clarity and best practices as a Christian. One of the sections that spoke to me, was about our talents and abilities. Each one of us were given talents and abilities that need to be carried out in the mission that God has created each one of us for.
I truly feel that painting brings the best of me out as a friend, sister, daughter, mother and wife. We are all on a journey and I hope you find what inspires you in this crazy-busy world. For whatever your journey is (going back to school to better your education, finding the balance between family and work, focusing on health, or transforming yourself spiritually) find your inspiration and be that inspiration for others!
