So I finally have my site up and ready for launch, and I am so excited! I hope everyone will bare with me as I begin this new journey. It is my intention to not only show my own journey in the world of Art, but to also encourage and help others as I move forward.
Some may notice the name of my site url is Silver Thread Studio. This is actually my Company LLC name. The name came about with help from my dear friend Joanne Fink. As I was out to dinner with her one night I told her I was having a lot of trouble coming up with a name for my business. After fading off that topic I began to share some things in my life with her. I told her that through all the hard things I had to go through I always looked for ways to hold onto that silver thread of hope. I explained that for me the silver thread represented my mother always telling me to keep my chin up. Mom and my favorite saying was always I love you to the Moon and back, so in my mind the silver thread was a moon beam. When I would have hard times I would search for that silver moon beam thread. I could always find it somewhere, a smile from a stranger, a patch of red in a drab setting, a child giggling or maybe just a small ray of sunlight peeking in through my dark room.
As I told Joanne about this she stopped me and told me there is the name for your company. Silver Thread Studio. And I must of beamed as bright as my silver thread as I knew that was a perfect name for my business.
That said it is my business name and not my trade name. *giggles* So it won’t be seen as often. As you noted the name of my Site is Ranae’ – Art Begins in the Heart. Art always starts with passion, and of course passion starts in our hearts, wishes and dreams. So come join me on this journey into the depths of your own hearts and let’s have some fun learning and creating.
Remember there is NO such thing as bad art, mistakes, ugly art etc. Every creation has value and beauty and mistakes are nothing more than new opportunities to try something in a different way.
Thank you for joining me here.
Hugs & Love – Ranae’
