Hello! Welcome to my first “Blog”. I have been thinking about doing this for a while, and have finally decided to take the plunge.
I thought I would start out by introducing myself. I am a prairie girl and have recently moved from the city to small town Saskatchewan – Biggar. Tag line for the town “New York is Big, But this is Biggar” has been a part of this town for many years. The most recent population posted is 2,161, and now with the addition of me – 2,162.
Life in a small town is certainly slower paced, no one is in a rush – it is actually a nice change. I am retired, I was fortunate to be able to retire early from a 30 year career in the corporate world. I love the slower pace and the “no stress” lifestyle.
So when I was looking for something to do with my time, I found country chic refinishing. It all started with a class I took with a friend of mine and learnt how to distress with chalk paint. I fell in love, every time I paint it takes me to my happy place. I can let go of all my surroundings and relax and just have fun.
Now, I have always been a crafter. I started out with cross stitching, I did this for years. I could sit for hours and get lost in the art of creation. I have also done soap making, candle making, body butters and bath bombs. I am the queen of trying any craft once but have found my passion with painting.
