My thoughts on crafting and beauty

Always Remeber that beauty is only skin deep. To achieve true beauty one must reach for inner beauty, then work on your exterior.

I look at crafting and beauty as two in the same. You go from a plain canvas and you build on it, creating a wonderful work of art. The same way we apply makeup to our faces. We begin as a fresh canvas, and later after the makeup has been applied, we allow a different kind of beauty to emerge.

Wonderful News

Saturday March 10th, 2011, I had the most amazing experience of my life. The day previous I was browsing the worldwide web, and came across a website called Flourishes. Needless to say I was beyond excited the moment I realized the store was in my small town of Pensacola, Florida. I had express my excitement to my husband, and being the wonderful support that he is, he told me to pull up the address and he would bring me the following day.
When I woke up the next morning I was very excited to check out the new store. I gave my husband the address and he plugged it into our GPS system and away we went. As we pulled up to the address indicated online, I was thrown for a loop because it looked like a house. My husband suggested that I call and so therefore I did. The owner Jan answered the phone and informed me that it was more an online type situation, however I was welcome to come in and see and purchase a few things.
The moment I walked in I was beyond impressed with the setup of everything and the beauty of every product in the store. I was beyond excited and unable to contain myself. My husband decided to go outside and allowed me to look around, and speak with Jan.

As Jan and I got to talking we had discussed creating a YouTube channel, and having a few YouTube designers for the shop. During our discussion I had mentioned if she ever needed help I would be more than willing to help, and was offered a job. Needless to say I was beyond excited. I get to start Monday March 12, 2012. I am being blessed with the ability to help provide for my family as well as do a job I absolutely love.
The ironic thing about it all is that Jan prayed for an assistant the night before, and I had pray that God walk with Rene in I in life, and that he help either Rene or myself find a job. Needless to say God is good and he put both Jan and I in each other’s paths, fulfilling a need we both had and desired.

I am pleased to share with you Jan’s wonderful online store known as flourishes LLC. Here is the link , be sure to check it out and shop away. Yes even you international ladies and gentlemen.
