To create this long overdue blog Gang! Whew, sorry it took so long; and please bear with me as I set out on my journey to create it and showcase my art, adventures and musings that insist on popping outta my head and into the real world for all to see! Currently, I am the owner of my own scrapbook supply store, Scrapping Lounge http://www.scrappinglounge.com/ in Montclair, California. I am having such a blast living my bliss and being able to craft and create my art at will while I man the store. Tough job, but someone's gotta do it! Prior to this awesome calling, I worked for many years in finance, then worked in my family's metal finishing business for 7 years, and now my own business. Let me tell you, there's nothing like being self-employed...no one telling you what to do (or anyone to listen to you), you can keep your own hours (12-14 hour days, 7 days/week), pay yourself what you want (if I made anything..can vary), benefits like insurance (paid for by me when I can afford it...don't get sick!), 401K (yeah, right, what savings?). Most of all, I do this for the freedom to create and the love of art and the wonderful people it attracts. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Stay tuned Gang...this blogging thing is cool.
