Last spring after falling in love with Annie Sloan paint I decided to take the plunge and begin this amazing… although crazy creative journey. I decided in addition to stalking every DIY/home décor blog on the planet, I would finally create my own. I have always known that one day I would have my own business doing something I love! I kept putting it off and making excuses…it was never the right time… I don’t have the money… I need to do more research, and by research I mean OBSESS over the details! One very late evening last spring Operation Magpie was born…after a business and domain name search determined it was not already being used by anyone else that is. I dove in head first and chased my dream. I registered my business and purchased the domain name. After my initial panic attack….what did I just get myself into moment in the middle of the night, I went to bed and dreamed of the next step.
This is what came next… I have no before picture…as I said, I am very new at this.
As you can see in my not so great picture, that is not the only thing I was busy painting. I think it turned out pretty great!
