Hello and Welcome

Oh, I am so excited!

I have spent the morning on the phone, with my sweet neice in Omaha, who has taken time out of her busy schedule homeschooling the 3 of the cutest kids in the world to help an aged, computer illiterate sign painter. She has helped me set up my new blog and my new Etsy shop and I thank her very, very much.

Have you ever just had a God moment?

Well, this is one of those moments. Over the last few weeks and months, I have been searching for something new to do (as if I need it, but that is for another blog) to work at home. For the last 27 years I have had a commercial sign shop, a wholesale sign shop, and a wannabe artist that actually sales a painting.

I've pondered over things to do to change directions, to do something easier on this ol' bod than lifting 4 x 8 sheets of plywood, or working in 100 degree weather on a bright white sign, or traveling 80 miles to paint a hog on a cement truck (that's another blog) not that I will give that up cause I love those 'hog' people, but I just needed something at home, something easier on my aching joints and something that gives me delight and happiness.

Do I want to decorate cakes? Sew clothes? Crochet hats and gloves? Nothing seemed to really fall into place, or seem to give me the direction that I needed. Then I went out to my shop, started painting and wonder of wonders, ideas started flowing from my mind, down through my chubby arm into that paint brush and it was like magic. Well not really, it was that God moment! Do what I'm good at, what He has given me a gift to do! What I have always knew was in me. Thank you Lord, for your special gifts, for the direction in my life, that makes me know this is what I am supposed to do.

I want to encourage you to wait on the Lord, and he will direct your path. Don't get ahead of God, just wait, and He will give you more than your heats desire, He will give you His desires for your life, which is so much better than what I could ever dream of.

I am so looking forward to sharing my designs and art with you.
Beautifully painted and hand-lettered signs.
Thank you for visiting my blog and thank you Christina for all your help.

Leaving you in His care,
