New designs and a new post!
I am excited to share MMJ’s new look with you in my latest post!!! It’s been quiet on the blog but behind the scenes, it has been a whirlwind of activity. It seems like if I’m blogging about something, I don’t have time to get the project done. For my sanity, that’s just not an option anymore. That being said, I’m working around the clock to prepare for my next step. I’m branching out into sales. I will offer my signature painted furniture and many other new, unique finds through several places. My BFF Beth Simms from Mose Meadows Farm has been a driving force behind that. She challenged me to get out of my comfort zone and step out from behind my computer. We are doing our first Barn Sale, selling together in several local stores, and I’m opening a shop online!!!
Beth’s been Junkin’, I’ve been painting and we’re having a ball! I received this picture from Beth in a text of a Barn Sale review in Flea Market Decor. Beth saw the article of The Old Chicken Ranch Vintage Barn Sale and called me. Beth and I have been friends since the 10th grade and have the same motto of Jesus, Sweet Tea, and Junk. I started bouncing ideas off her for my logo and packaging. I needed a graphic designer, like, now. I found Bubblegum Blowfish on Etsy. I took one look at her Junky style and I knew she was perfect. From its conception, I’ve had a vision of the “look” I wanted for My Mom’s Junk. She nailed it.
Chalk Painting 101’s New Ad
Everything is getting an updated look. Including my Chalk Painting: 101 advertisements. This cute pink, painting, Pin-Up is a real head turner (and a tongue twister;). I’ve expanded my Chalk Painting 101 classes and I’m including home parties in my lineup. They are so much fun. I just put this up on my page today!!! If you live in the Tulsa area I hope you join me for my first Saturday Chalk Painting classes. When I originally downloaded my artwork from Bubblegum Blowfish, I just happened to be texting my friend Cherami Thomas from Urban Farmhouse Designs. I told her I thought that my pink pin-up looked like she was missing a paintbrush and she agreed! So I channeled my inner Cherami and went back to Dena and asked. To my surprise, she said yes! She even updated it free of charge! Last, but not least, we are coming up with my logo design. I am hoping to get it in hand before the Barn Sale.
