When people ask what I do for a living, I still stumble over the question. Because the story keeps taking new turns.
It’s particularly funny when I go through customs. I have to rehearse so I don’t stutter. (Never stutter through customs.)
“What do you do for a living?”
Don’t stutter… don’t stutter…
“I am an interior designer.”
END. OF. STORY. With not a stutter in sight. And that’s saying something. 🙂
Truth is, I am a signmaker turned junk decorator that managed to ditch the day job in order to do the fun job, that takes photos and writes stories, but now I’ve created this line of stencils so that makes me a signmaker again.
I’d better practice that one up just a little more… 🙂
So last night, while I was pacing the floor, rehearsing for my next speaking engagement at the Fraser Valley Women’s Expo in February, the new direction made me screech to a halt mid sentence, and revamp my story. Just a little.
This time it will be how I can help others create beautiful things for their own home, through the art of old signs.
It was nice to take a different angle! Because there’s so much more to us than just our meagre beginnings.
We all have revolving stories. And if your own isn’t changing in some, at least small way, I’d like to suggest to shake that up!
Because there’s someone waiting to learn from the new you. You included.
So…this round I will be public speaking on a new chapter… talking about how I morphed my once sign biz into….
Fraser Vallen Women’s Expo
Sat, Feb 28, 1pm
I’ll be sharing my tips on how I make cool, old signs for my own home… and some stencils will be coming along… with maybe even a few newly released designs! We are working on it!
Visit HERE for more stencil and newsletter info.
Thanks once again for having me, Expo Shannon! I can’t wait to get my ‘old sign on!’
When’s the last time you’ve tweaked your story? Or are you a little overdue for a new chapter?
