New doors are opening in the world of Tamagrams…

Since January I’ve been refocusing the direction of the business. I’ve been trying to get my designs picked up by national card publishers. This past month, I got contracts for licensing several new greeting card designs. I’m really pumped about the licensing avenue and having the bigger companies rep and distribute my designs! I’m very thankful for the new doors that have opened and excited to see what’s next…

One of my best friends got married last weekend and I wanted to do something extra special for her, something she could keep and enjoy for many years to come. I painted and personalized a bar stool with a monogram of her new last name and used her home colors throughout the design.

I have missed doing those types of projects…I want to start marketing more about offering hand painted and customized products such as step stools for kids (birthday or Christmas presents) and baby showers, bar stools for unique wedding shower gifts or collegic themed graduation gifts, wooden letters for baby’s nursery, custom hand painted picture frames, painted furniture, etc. I love see a creation start from a blank slate (or in this case, raw wood) and then seeing the finished masterpiece for someone to enjoy. It makes my heart smile…I feel so blessed to be in this place to harness the creativity from within and the challenge of coming up with new ideas. Someone once told me, “Creativity is the next thing to divinity”…it is something that comes from above, something God gives to each of us. Thought it was a beautiful concept.
