I am forever inspired by all of the creativity out there and often find myself thinking, "This would be a really great idea for a business." One business at a time chica, one at a time. While I can't start a new business every other week, I can at least hold onto these ideas for a rainy day or that crazy phenomenon called "free time". Ha!
There's this great site that is slowly growing on people, and I imagine it to be just booming by the end of the year. Have you heard of Pinterest?

In the meantime, there are still paintings to be completed and paintings to come. Here's a glance at the progress of my current business:
