It's official! Um.... the pictures will come later...

I had a lovely last day at work and I am now officially "retired". Well, more like I am changing my focus a bit and creating art full time. I would have lovely pictures to show you of the flowers, cards, and gifts... Um... But I found out that when my camera battery is dead, I can't even download pictures. Ooops! I took pictures until my battery died - LOL!

So instead of those pictures, here are pictures of The Frame & I and The Art Store. This is the brick & mortar store where I have worked for the last 18 years. When I started working there in 1991, it was much smaller and only in one building.

In 1998, Ida and I bought the business from the previous owners. Now, Ida is taking over my part of the business and I am going to work as a full time artist - including illustrating a series of books for my daughter.
There are a lot of exciting changes in the future for all of us. Thanks, Ida! I wish you and Keith all the best!
If you are in the Prescott, Arizona area, be sure to stop by and say 'hi' and visit the best picture frame shop, gallery, and art store in the universe! (Well, at least in Arizona =D)
God bless,
