Where have I been?
I know I have been MIA for a while but I just could not post. Not with the negative feelings I was experiencing. I am normally a very upbeat person, loving my work, loving my customers, but when you feel betrayed it hurts. O.K. I am not Pollyanna, I don't feed the hungry or work for peace in the world, but I do believe in honesty. I think if every one would just be truly honest, what a great place this earth would be. When a clerk gives you too much change give it back. We strive to be honest with all our clients, work really hard to make each project the best it can be. When B.C. and I moved to N.J. and started Painted River Studios we wanted to have a business that we could put our heart and soul in; run without lots of employees, and enjoy our customers. I think we accomplished just that. We have made so many special friends along the way, and I truly treasure each and every one of you. But when you feel used its like hitting a brick wall. You start wondering why you do this, why you give so much of your self in each job. You think, "am I crazy, why am I putting in so many hours , taking away from my family". When feeling at my lowest a client & friend gave me a wonderful gift, just because, and friendship is developing with another new client, who is so easy to work with. So I will be back, my faith in people will continue. Just need a little time to regroup. It really is a wonderful world.
