I have always been a lover of the arts.
In elementary school I hot glued ribbon rosettes to pin backs and sold them on the school bus.
My mom is probably where I got the "crafting gene" from. When I was little, I set up beside her original watercolors at the local farmers market. Unveiling my first small business; "Lu Lu's Jewelry." I was hooked! I loved the idea of sharing my art with the world (a.k.a. the tiniest town in upstate New York) and making some serious money too! (A $20 bill is a big deal to an 8 year old...)
Then somewhere along the way this entrepreneurial spirit just kinda died off.
Life happened. I got married. I moved to North Carolina and had a couple babies. I always had dreams of creating something special involving the arts and the community again though. I also had that itch to interact with people that didn't require me to also wipe their butts. (#momlife) So with the blessing of my husband, I finally just jumped.
Adventures in Bloom is proof there's never "the right time" for any beginning. But there's always another adventure around the corner, and there's always another opportunity to bloom.
I'm glad y'all are on this adventure with me. Here's to whatever's next!
