Well readers, the time has come where I must change my "stay at home mom" to " Mom" and "early childhood educator" on my "About Me" column. Since winning the lottery was not in my plans, I must return to work. I have been off for over a year and a half therefore entering the work force is scaring me!!!! Scaring me a lot actually! I feel as if I have forgotten how to be an educator. It's been that long!!! I used to have a repertoire of songs that I used to sing to the children engraved in my brain. Now the only songs that come to mind are "If you're happy and you know it" and the oh so famous ABCD song!!!!! I do not understand how Moms with a capital M juggle work, house duties, and raising children all at the same time!!!!! I guess I will soon find out!!!!

Anyhow, on an artistic front, here are my latest's

The last one was for a client. I love seeing my art in homes.

So far, this is all I want to do!!!!! Customised to your liking! From initials to quotes, to choosing your colors!!! Message me for quotes and you will be pleased!!!!

And lastly, here are some pics from our launch party!!!! Pretty exciting!!!! Book your party now and take advantage of our hostessing perks!!!!!

Check us out on Facebook. New products coming very soon!!!!!!

Thanks for reading, XOXO!!!!!

Hello to all out there!!!! So nice to be back here once again!!!! Hope you are all having a swell week!!! The sun is shining and I feel your happiness fellow readers!!!!! It is time we get a summer up in here!!! I am happy to announce that I have adopted a pet horse!!! His name is Buttercup and I simply love him! He is super sweet and does not bite! Here he is

Charlie was getting lonely and needed a friend so I had no choice but to purchase him at Homesense! I knew my husband would not approve of him so I put him up on our anniversary! He wouldn't of had the heart to say: "What the...????" My genius plan worked! He just stared at Buttercup and sighed... Animals in a home are indispensable! They give character. Here are some that I have in my home




And, speaking of animals, freshly new at S.Y.P are these stunning clutches! I absolutely adore! They arrived just in time for tomorrow's launch party!

And lastly as promised, I can finally reveal a collage that I was working on for a client for quite some time! I delivered it last week and boy was I nervous! This collage was custom made. From first date location to favorite sports teams. I also did some Instagram stalking to get some more ideas on what to paste on the collage. I was worried about the sports teams but I am happy with the outcome!!!! Who would of thought...

Have a great evening and happy Friday to all tomorrow!!!!! XOXO!
