This is my sideline job for now - maybe someday I'll be able to turn it into my full time profession so that I can work out of the house and be with my German Shepherds all the time!

I'd like to give credit to Cynthia at Terra Treasures for the avatar artwork. She did a wonderful job on this, with very little guidance from me! Please take a look at her shop as well - terratreasures.etsy.com.

For those who wonder where my business name came from:

"Dreams" by Langston Hughes

Hold fast to dreams

Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
