November “Nutcracker Sweet” CWR Kit

Image it’s Christmas Eve, the streets are lined with pink and blue ornate homes. The pretty candles and winter green garland fills the front Windows with Christmas Cheer. Among the homes is The Stahlbaum’s house where you can hear ballroom music fill the quiet snowy street. Oh what a magical night it will be! As carriages line up to drop guests off at the Stahlbaum’s home, a man also known as the toy maker arrives. Oh to see what he is carrying in his pack. Could it be a Nutcracker?

Oh my goodness, this is one of my favorite holiday stories, I wanted to create a kit full of whimsy, sparkle and delight to adorn your planner, journals, and all things paper! I hope you love each and every bit of this kit and most of all have FUN!! Tis the season for a bit of magic and creativity!

Published as a Trail Blazer

Me? Published! Wow I was so excited and thrilled to be even considered. My creative pen guru, Angel with PenGems suggested that I be interviewed for the publication out of Dallas, Texas called the Voyage Dallas Trail Blazers. I was sent a questionnaire with questions to answer about myself and my business along with any advice that I would give to anyone coming into business as a creative entrepreneur.

So first up, I had to know the meaning of a Trail Blazer, so this is what googled told me a person “who makes a new track through wild country, a pioneer, an innovator.” Now I know I’m not the first person to go on this journey, but I am the only one that is going on MY journey. I have to say in this stage of my adventure the number one thing I tell myself over and over is to NEVER EVER give-up. I took on this business motto back in 2012 when I decided to start my small business. Throughout my life I had started so many creative outlets, I took floral design, I started a handmade business right after my son was born, and I created different crafts and sold them to friends. All these times I just quit when it became too hard or I didn’t really know the next step. In 2011, I discovered blogs and it opened my eyes widely to so many creative types and finding my tribe. This is when my dreams began to take a direction, I believed that it is possible to do what you are supposed to be doing, in my case it’s being an artist, and make a living. Not as a starving artist but as a creative entrepreneur. Using my creativity to inspire others to create and have a whole lot of fun in the process.

You can find the online version of the article here

I ordered a printed copy of the article to put on my art studio wall to remind myself to keep moving forward, create the life you want!

Happy Trails,

Rebecca
