Well, I broke down and got a steady job working for the USPS. Which has an advantage. It will eventually give me the flexibility to work as much or as little as I want. But it is not somewhere that I want to be for 20 years. I still want to get my design work up and going. I know my problem is not advertising as much and as correctly as I should. I should be more worried/concerned but I know (hope) it will all work out in the end.

In other breaking news. Owen will be a BIG BROTHER in May. Which is exciting in and amongst itself, but it gives me another slight push to work at my personal project again.

Along with these updates, there is a business change I want to make public. I have changed by billing procedures. I will no longer be charging by the hour. I will be charging based on individual project. This will hopefully sooth upcoming clients that I will not be dilly dallying with my time and their money. I am here to make people's homes more colorful and fun, and yes to make enough money to be able to make this my full time job. But not to rob people blind.

So, I hope this makes people feel more comfortable and willing to have a new design created for their space, by ME!

New Discount

Do you want to change your children's spaces but don't have any clue where to start? I can help. I have a Bachelors in interior design and have painted murals, polka dots, stripes and other custome designs. Please click here to view my previous work. I charge $15 an hour, first in house consultation is free, I offer 10% discount for Expecting Moms and 10% discount for 2010 Flood Victims. I also will pay $20.00 for referring a paying client my way.
Okay everyone I know times are tough and money is tight so I am offering ANOTHER discount. I really want to get this business up off the ground and if it is by giving people discounts: then I will give the people what they want.

This discount involves FaceBook. For every person you recruit to my Tots2Teens FB Page I will give you 1% discount (not to exceed 20 people/20%)

So for Example:

This Surfboard Mural took 2 days to complete.
8 Hours a day (16 hours total)
$15 an hour
If you recruit 20 people and get 20% off, that would be a $48 savings

That would bring your custom paint job to $192.

That is a great deal is it not?

So, make sure you are a fan of T2T FB. And when recruiting members, have them post YOUR name on my wall, so I can give YOU credit.

Thanks Everyone. Happy Recruiting

Congratulations Alex Reynolds

A big CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to Alex Reynolds for your 23 recruits during the April Recruitment Contest. Now while Alex needs to decide on what custom/personal art piece for her prize, ALL new RECRUITS get something too. For the rest of the month of May all new fans from April get 10% off design work. Whether it be a mural, a custom canvas or anything else you want done that you can't get created on your own will be 10% off if created by me.

While I realize most of the new recruits are teenagers, just think about how cool it would be too rearrange/repaint/redo your room just in time for summer. The ideas are limitless. Animal prints, HOT pinkness, bling bling, graffiti inspired, polka dots, even geeky sheek. I know being a teenager can be hard, make life a little easier with a room all your own where "you can be you"

F.Y.I: I charge $15 per hour. If you have so many ideas but don't know where to start and the parentals won't OK for the funds, Email me. Maybe we can work something out.

I hope I have given you the itch to redesign your space and I hope maybe I can help!

April's Recruiting "Friends" Contest

I need more friends for my "TOTS2TEENS" Facebook Page. So, I thought what better way to get more friends than to have a contest. It's simple. Tell all your friends, family and coworkers about my page. Ask them to "become a fan" and then to write on my wall Your Name. (that way I can keep track who has the most recruits.) And once your friends join the page, they can also recruit and hopefully win the contest.

So, you are asking, what is the prize? You have a choice. You can choose from:

A. One custom canvas with any kind of design, style and detail. The canvas may be any size 16" x 20" and under. If over that size all you would need to pay for is the canvas. The time and paint is still free.


B. 25% off any other design project. Whether it be a mural, a larger collection of canvases or painted or fabric covered display letters. Anything you choose.

This contest will be held the entire month of April. There can only be one winner. In the case of a tie, the contest will continue for the people within the tie and the next posted name on the wall will be the winner.

I think I have covered everything. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Thanks everyone and good luck recruiting. I will be keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Side Note: I am trying to give my business more attention so I can work for myself and not work for another corporation or business who are only concerned about the bottom line. So, help me make my business a success so I can stay home with my little man. Believe me I won't forget your help. Love, Owen's Mom
