Sharing the Joy....

Many people ask me if I like being a makeup/hair artist. Normally I answer back with a quick "yes", but truthfully that doesn't really cover the half of it. I don't "like" my job, I LOVE IT! Why?...well if you were in my shoes you would know exactly what I meant.
Even though I'm a makeup/hair artist, I wear a variety of other hats in my life as a mother, daughter, sister, wife, artist, teacher, beauty expert and a business woman. All of these elements add a lot of flavor to the mix, so I just thought to myself "you've logged a lot of hours on this interesting journey of yours, so you might as well share the ride". So I am! That will be the only way for you to understand what I love about my profession and why I love living in the moment....

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.

In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, never in want.

Resolve to make at least one person happy every day, and then in ten years you may have made three thousand, six hundred and fifty persons happy, or brightened a small town by your contribution to the fund of general enjoyment.

Your Merry Christmas may depend on what others do for you. But your Happy New Year depends on what you do for others.

Every new year people make resolutions to change aspects of themselves they believe are negative. A majority of people revert back to how they were before and feel like failures. This
year I challenge you to a new resolution. I challenge you to just be yourself.

I hope you find the quotes as inspirational as I do, and I wish you a very healthy, happy, prosperous and blessed NEW YEAR...



Here is the beginning of my 10 day quest for a worthy cause, my first blog for "Can for Comments"!
On Thanksgiving I sent many clients, friends and family a sincere message expressing my gratitude for what they have brought to my life. A few days after I received some messages from a few who expressed how special that made them feel, that it brightened their Thanksgiving day that much more. With all that being said it made me realize how important it really is to express your gratitude and what it can do to others.
So today I'm making a concerted effort to focus on gratitude this holiday season. These last few months have made me realize, more than ever, how truly blessed and fortunate I am.
There are about six weeks until the new year, and I want to spend those six weeks living my gratitude, instead of just feeling grateful. I want to recognize the things I’m grateful for, and recognize the people who make my life complete.

Consider it a pre-New Year’s resolution.
