I had a dream…
And, against all odds, I went ahead and did it.
I want to do something different, to step out of my comfort zone, and create a business that uses amazing products to transform old, shabby pieces of furniture, or metal trays or other objects, or cheap laminate side tables into something beautiful and functional for the home.
Edith Schaeffer, one of my favourite authors, wrote a book called “Hidden Art.” She makes the case that our lives are to reflect the beauty of creation, and that everything we do should have an element of beauty. Whether we’re weeding a garden, preparing a meal, designing a living room, or getting ready for a baby, there should be some added flair in what we do.
I’ve been a wife and mother for 4 decades. I raised and homeschooled a dozen children. During that time, we raised vegetables in our garden and chickens for eggs and meat. We learned the principle that “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.” At the same time, we strove to create beauty in what we did each day, in the notebooks we kept and the music we played.
Add Some Flair is the perfect place for me to use my desire to create beauty out of everyday items. By transforming pieces with paint, or recording memories in a journal, eyes are delighted and emotions are stirred. Let me help you transform the ordinary into something truly extraordinary.
I’d love to see you, and help you add some flair to your life!
Janet loves to re-use and re-purpose things that would end up in the landfill if they weren’t given some tender care. She isn’t quite a hoarder – yet she always looks at ways to give items new life. An old plate can be painted to remind us to love. An old boot can be turned into a planter. Pallets can be furniture and pieces of wood can be works of art.
