My new BLOG!
For those of you that don't know me. I am Christie Hawkins - The owner and artist behind The Social Easel! I am super excited to be adding a blog to my Social Easel Page! I will be updating this every week or so with new ideas, crafts, paintings and even some sneak peek tutorials! It will be a place for everything creative and inspiring! This is where I can share a little bit more of me with you!
I have been an artist my entire life! I come from a line of artists...my grandpa as well as my mother! That beautiful easel I use in class - That is my mom's! She used that same easel when she was an art major in college! I updated it with one of my favorite colors and love that is what I use to teach you guys each week!
I have dabbled in so many creative business before starting The Social Easel and finding my place! I did cakes, wreaths, and more! Right now, I am living my dream and I hope to use this gift God gave me to inspire others in art and in life! For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. - 2 Timothy 1:7
I love the "social" part of this business!! Getting to know you guys by name when you come in and paint with me. Seeing your faces on Facebook when you comment! It's the fun stuff! Thank you all for making it that way! I feel like we are a little art family! :)
My goal through these blogs is to share love, inspiration and fun with you all! I want to use the gifts He gave me and share them with others! This year marks The Social Easel's 4th year in business! I am beyond grateful and excited to say that! It has also made me think about where I see this business going and how I can reach and teach more people! I am fully motivated to bring you guys the best Painting Classes in Springfield, MO along with an online relationship we can build for the years to come! If you haven't already, please join my Facebook page to keep up with FB Live videos and more! You can always contact me there through messaging!
Thank you guys for a great start to 2018! I am looking so forward to see what this year brings for The Social Easel!
Stay tuned for more in the weeks to come!
