It all started again with stained glass. My husband and I took a stained glass class one winter. I had always wanted to learn this skill. After discovering the art glass designed for Greene and Greene's Gamble House I knew I had to learn. I fell in love with stained glass work and I decided I would eventually start a business called Shady Grove Studios. I sat down to design a logo, a rambling oak tree. My seven year old son saw the drawing and said "I didn't know you could draw." It was that pivotal moment where I learned something very important. I had lost my artistic self in becoming a wife and a mother and it was time to rediscover myself. I opened the door to my creativity and it has not stopped since. Our move to the beauty of the country and away from daily distractions of the city catapulted things exponentially. I can't wait to see what comes next.
“To dream anything that you want to dream. That's the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do. That is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself to test your limits. That is the courage to succeed.” - Bernard Edmonds
Have a wonderful weekend! Chris
