May flowers...I do see them everywhere!

Though all the extra seasonal rain has kept me indoors.  
I find myself pushing my creative side to paint and play with my photographs more.
A good thing...Sigh.

Hello Spring!

Hello Friends and hello Spring! 

Sorry I haven’t been in for a little while.  I took Spring Cleaning to a whole new level and decided to work on a few things…

First I started to redo my business plan…Yikes!…I know!  Crazy!  A constant work in progress!

Darla Kirchner Designs, LLC
Business Plan -2011

That lead to reworking my website and then my blog.  Which lead to lots and lots of research.  Am I making you tired yet? 

Be right back…out of coffee...

With my new found clarity, I began a body of meaningful pieces.  Some are what I is Coffee and then there is chocolate…ah.  ADD moment...I will more of that soon.  

Back to focus…

I promise to update you here with my new post while I am preparing my shiny new home.  You are always welcome to drop by as I settle into my new home.  It is truly is like a moving into a new home.  A little overwhelming…but good for me too!  Let me know your thoughts!   

 I better get back to work.  Then I REALLY need to do some spring cleaning in my actual home and studio...Lots of cobwebs there!  

Talk soon,

E. Roosevelt stated..."The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams". I believe!
Had a wonderful class last night. Turned our snowy night into a warm beach. All with paint, good company and popcorn!
