Prom

I can’t believe I didn’t show you this!


Emily is a senior, it’s prom season and although she doesn’t want to go to prom she wants a prom so….

Here we go again, party planning!

We are throwing Emily a prom.

We rented a banquet hall with staffed bar (she will be old enough), hired a dj / karaoke, got a decoration committee together, rented tablecloth and chair bows, decided on a theme, made a guest list, found an amazing cupcake lady, plan the finger food, got Emily a tiara and are now looking at hairstyles and planning the “Emily Hopes and Dreams” exclusive centre pieces. 

My girl is getting her prom. With friends and their families! 

It will be memorable!

Seriously, look at her! 😍

Emily’s Hopes & Dreams – Art Gallery

Emily is ready to show some of her art to the world!


So in order to help, I’ve looked at opening an Etsy shop for her which looked like a great idea but sounded like a lot of learning for me. 

A friend suggested to create a Facebook page only and see how the world would react.


Well, this was 48 hours or so ago. 

Saturday night we opened Emily’s Art Gallery – Emily’s Hopes and Dreams.

This morning, I am exhausted but Emily is beyond proud and excited. 


Since going live…

We’ve posted 18 hand painted vases and some of her paintings


We’ve sold/received orders for close to 30 vases and Emily has been commissioned 2 painting. 


Some of the orders are local some will ship Internationally. I foresee a lot of driving to the UPS store in my future. 

We’ve delivered her first order. 


Emily painted and signed 25 bookmarks to add to all her orders and I can see that we will need to get more of these 😊


I’ve spent many hours finding accessories, taking pictures and trying to figure out a way to track all of this. I am exhausted but happy because my girl is beyond happy.

This is her success story and I’m just glad to be a part of it!

 Help Emily increase her visibility and sell her art!

Eventually, I will build her a website but for now, I will continue to update her Facebook page!
