Started Creations by DS / House Art Renderings and greeting cards, sold at several garden centers in local towns. I LOVE making greeting cards, and house renderings.
Personally I just love doing anything artistic with my time. Sketching, pen and ink, pencils. Jewelry making using semi-precious stones and metals. Taking pictures of obscure, random places and things.
I love making people happy, even with just a smile.
