Is it the right fit for you???

For the love of design, decor and artistic finishes… That pretty much sums up what a Home Decor Artist is and why I enjoy my job so much! 

I have been a Home Decor Artist for the past 20 years and I can honestly say I have loved every minute of it!  I’m not trying to say there hasn’t been stressful situations. (There’s been plenty!)   I am saying that looking back over all the fabulous projects I’ve gotten to work on outweighs any of the stress involved.  

Years ago, back when I first started as a Home Decor Artist there was another artist out at a job site where the contractor had given me a chance to show my stuff.   (Truthfully…she didn’t really like me being there)  Well…one day we were talking and she said to me “Ya know…anybody can do this…”  At the time that REALLY hurt my feelings.  It was like she was saying that since “anybody” can do this, that what I had to offer wasn’t that special.

The fact that I was getting to create wall finishes in million dollar homes when only a few short years before I was at home nursing babies WAS special.  The fact that I had put myself out there, the introverted girl who never liked to speak up in class.  

Fast forward to today (a good 15 years since that conversation) and I realize part of what she said was true.  Anybody CAN do this!  I don’t mean it in the snarky way she meant but in an encouraging way.  

I want you to know there is a road beyond painting furniture!  There is a road where you can create artistic things bigger than you ever thought!  Where you can take all the creativity you have and put it on a wall, or just about any surface and create something amazing! Your creations will cause people to have joy when they walk into their homes!  Well, that’s just the cat’s meow!

Anyway...if you’ve ever wondered whether you would make a good  Certified Home Decor Artist ™ or maybe this blog post will help get those wheels turning.  I created a fun quiz to help you decide if this is something you should pursue!
