Can you believe, I was here a year ago?
Getting the keys… a dream, a hope, stepping out with NOTHING but faith… here is my post a year ago https://fabulousfinishes.wordpress.com/2011/08/09/my-company-fabulous-finishes-is-opening-a-real-live-store-with-a-window/
A family affair, blood sweat and tears… making it my own –
It seems like so long ago…
Truly, a family affair. Thank you, Lord, for blessing me with a family that believed in me and supported me….
These pictures stir memories . Being afraid… Are we doing the right thing? Is this the right time? What if it fails?
Reminding myself daily that we walk in faith, we trust in our good Lord, we stay positive, and squash the worry out
My first green dollar 🙂
My lease was six months long. By February I was getting great feedback and I confidently re-signed for another year. Changing and growing, learning as I go
So many amazing clients, many warm memories, new friendships and connections…
This past spring I brought on another wonderful line of DIY paints – the CeCe Caldwell Chalk and Clay Paints. They made my store even MORE colorful!
Teaching and inspiring others to use paint in fabulous ways –
Taking items owners no longer wanted
and giving them new life…
So many lovely pieces that have found new homes –
THANK YOU wonderful customers!
I can’t take credit for this all. I have gotten where I am because my God has blessed me with great talents. My wonderful friend gave me a great idea one day – we could help so many in need by donating sales from pieces we paint. Brilliant!
So I choose this as my first official piece, up for auction, to celebrate a wonderfully successful first year in business. ALL proceeds will go to MCREST Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter Team
Wait! That was the before, this is it now
Solid wood, dove tail drawers, super clean almost like new condition. Metallic finish in silvers and bronzes, swarovski crystals (of course!) and an Aurastone epoxy top.
This piece is now up for open auction, starting bid $500, open for bidding until September 30th, at which time bidding will close. You can submit your bid via email or in store. Open to online bids, but buyer will pay all shipping fees.
All proceeds will be donated to MCREST.
This piece is one of a kind – a steal at $500. Let your friends and family know – maybe we can reach the just right person who will have the perfect wall for it to call home, and we can help a great cause at the same time!
(MCREST) shelters men, women, children and families for up to 90 days in congregations across Macomb County. The congregations provide meals, shower facilities, transportation and, when able, laundry services for our guests. MCREST operates year round and is proud to provide a safe place where families and individuals can start over again and begin the transition of changing their lives.
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
