Beautiful Things – My little boutique is where I can create to my heart’s content. For as long as I can remember I have been drawing, painting, designing rooms, making displays, crafting, and event design. It’s been said that if you look at what is on a person’s bookshelf you will discover what they are passionate about. Mine are filled with all of the above.
While making a living as a restaurant manager my spare time was spent creating and reading everything I could about my passion. About ten years ago I had had enough of the corporate world. My husband, George, the wonderful man and free spirit that he is, wholeheartedly supported my decision to open my boutique. This was so out of my comfort zone but I had to try and Beautiful Things opened its doors.
I discovered along the way that living a creative life was more than just creating, it was a whole new way of thinking. I was learning that I had to work on myself and change my thinking. Being an entrepreneur was much different that working for someone. And, that started another journey that I have found, is just as important as running my business.
While my days are filled with greeting customers, working with brides planning their very special day, and of course shopping for beautiful things this creative journey that I am on is one of the best things that could have happened to me. To be able to do what I am passionate about and bring beauty and design to someone’s day is something that I am thankful for everyday.
