IT! Vinyl Creations)
had often admired my friends who seemed to have built-in gifts of
music, art, public speaking etc. I thought I was lacking in any
talent that could be nurtured and grown. I didnt consider
myself gifted in any area, much less passionate about anything.
I didnt know that I could challenge the negative information
brewing in my brain from being told you cant.
I just accepted it as a destination.
raised a daughter and three sons, encouraging each to find his or
her passion. It wasnt a conscious thing, it just seemed the
right thing to do. Each of them did find something to be passionate
about. Something to learn, to grow, to excel at
.and to share
with others. Those are stories for another time and place.
I am, a retired newspaper advertising rep and writer, a former travel
agent, a one-time university enrollment counselor and an always
lover of anything that walks on all-fours realizing that a
passion begins with taking the first step. It wasnt about
lacking in talent, it was about trying something new and not being
afraid to fail. I saw things on Face Book and Pinterest and thought
. I can do that.
frugal, I found someone in the signage business who kindly gave
me some scraps of vinyl to practice on. Then I made a discovery.
I not only could do that, I loved it! And was good at it! And it
a few years and I find myself creating gift items, T-Shirts, store
signage, putting names on baseball helmets, making custom memory
gifts and even customizing folders for funerals (ones that tell
a story and represent the loved one in a special way). Yeah, I think
I found it ~~ the thing that rocks my world (besides my awesome
husband who gives me 100% support and tolerates well that the dining
room is now a craft room)!
wont know if you dont try!
