Parisian Themed Mural Part I

Thought For The Day:
The thought for the day is short and sweet.

I am loving that things are falling in place! Lately, there has been no fight, but just a willingness on my part to lay down what I want to do and allow God to do His thing! It's quite frankly the best feeling. I am learning to enjoy the journey and not look for what I think the large end result would be. After all, once the end of the journey comes, there is another journey to strap up for.

On My Work Desk:

Hooray...I have started the Parisian themed mural for baby Gabriella!!! It will end up being 3 vignettes when it is all finished. They will depict the Eiffel Tower, a little girl walking her poodle, and a street sign named after her.

Baby Gabriella's mom Danielle is a fellow blogger as well. Her and her husband have just built a house with Ryan Homes and she is sharing their process. She is creating an awesome following of those who enjoy interior decorating. You can find her at What's Buzzin? We're Building a Savoy with Ryan Homes!

It was hard to take great pictures at the time these were taken. It was dark outside, the room has a nice soft ambiance light, and the way I had to take the picture to get the full wall, were all factors. I feel like comedian Kevin Hart right now with his bank account jokes. :*)

Nonetheless, I wanted you all to get an idea of what things are shaping up to look like. Of course more updates are to come!

2 and 2

Thought For The Day
It's been 2 days over 2 months since I have updated last. And from everything that I read, that is a horrible thing for a blog and business. Well...despite what "they" say, this small break has been super instrumental in my future.

While I haven't been posting, I have been living my passion to the fullest! It hasn't been all easy...fear rears it's ugly head when it feels like it, and sometimes that is often. However, I have been on a mission, on my grind, and hustling hard. Any way you slice it, I am living my life on purpose.

So this post will not be all that long or super laced with pictures. I am using it as more of an update of what has been going on in the past few weeks.

On My Work Desk:
Mixed Media - I am still working on the sunset series that I wrote about the last post. I am quite pleased with the way that they are turning out.

I am in search of a place to host my first every art exhibition! Of course there are really no words to express how excited I am. I am not all that nervous about this one. This is a necessary that I was created to make. It's the first of many successful moves! I will keep you all update as to when it happens...of course you all are invited :)

I have started a Parisian themed mural for a happy couple that will be blessed with a baby girl in the next few months. I will post progress pictures soon.

Scarfs/Cowls - Business has been booming as I have been blessed to come up with some fresh and  innovative designs.

Other Things Creative - A little while ago I posted a short teaser clip about a mixed tape that is coming out that I was involved in. Well, that has turned into something all together different. It's a good different. An anti-bullying difference!

Two fellas (Willecutz and Steve Forte) and I have had the privilege to go into two elementary schools and perform original songs that circle around giving kids a better self awareness so that bullying becomes obsolete. Check out a little more here at the links below:

Well there you have it folks!
