You know that empty wall you’ve been walking by for the last month. You keep looking at it, wanting to do a gallery wall, but are a little overwhelmed of where to start. I’m going to give you some ideas of how to tackle this issue.
This week I’ve been thinking about Easter and how to make it special. It’s a time for renewal and hope. It is also a challenge this year. It will be the first for many of us spending Easter with only the people in our homes and not extended family and friends. It’s at these times especially that I feel that some extra preparation is appropriate.
I could tell you that Purple Coneflower Design started when my family moved to Hibbing, MN three years ago for my husband’s job. After we moved, I wasn’t landing a job in my field (financial development and non-profit management) and I made the decision to work with a life coach. It took a few sessions for me to allow myself to give in to the idea of starting a business. To start something that brought together my ability to design home décor, my love for vintage, and to showcase my handy woodworking skills.
It really began over 35 years ago as a teenager when I completely redecorated my bedroom and I got the design bug. In college, I was the kid that hung wallpaper and reupholstered furniture for my dorm room. I earned a degree in art history and art studio.
