Welcome to FauxReal Designs and my very first post!

I live in Texas.  I'm a mother of a 15 year old boy teenager. I have found the most wonderful guy- we're not quite married but we both feel we are more to each other than boyfriend/girlfriend.  I love creating. I love working with my hands and my mind (the left side- the creative part or is it the right!?) and I HEART paint!! AND plaster!  My favorite saying - "I love the smell of paint and plaster in the mornings!"
You will find my inspiration comes from many sources- my own imagination, books, nature, collaberation with other artists, and necessity- the mother of invention- or in this case the mother of creativity!

I plan of having tutorials on basic wall finishes, refinished and or reupholstered furniture, and helpful painting tips- OH and definitely crafts! Or as my sisters calls them Arts and Craps!  And I plan on getting my son and his teen friends involved with teen crafts - COOL stuff, not ducks, geese, and glue guns!

So...I hope you'll follow me and share in my journey!  Can't wait to see where it ends up!

Ciao Ya'll!
