Good Morning friends, fellow creatives, clients, and anyone else who is awesome and stumbled upon my little nook on the vast world wide web.  I am so happy you are here and that you are following along with me on this journey.  And let’s be honest, being a small business owner is not always easy, and it’s not always manageable, effectively.  So, I like to give credit where credit is due.  So I want you to meet some of my friends and companies that I could not live without.  And that helps keep my business up and running.  And that provides YOU (my clients) with beautiful, user-friendly avenues that make it easier on us both.
