I'm a busy mother of five--four girls and a boy--ages 17 to 6. Luckily I
have horrible insomnia, so I can paint at night! I have been married for
24 years to an incredible man. (In case you're trying to do the math--yes,
I got married when I was 5.) This is the first little business I have ever
attempted, and although it is way out of my comfort zone to try and sell
something, I am absolutely loving it!

An old Armoire, painted and updated.
