Do you feel unimportant? Remind yourself that you are more important than you think. By Debi Payne Designs.

Are You Feeling Unimportant?

How many times do you find yourself feeling like you are unimportant?  Perhaps it is at work where you are feeling that the things you do don’t really matter.  Or maybe when you are around your friends you feel more like a tag-a-long.  For some, they may feel unimportant when they are at home.  I know that many people say that they don’t vote in elections because their vote really […]

Be Kind to One Another

Creating An Art Legacy

As an artist I have often wonder what my art legacy would look like.  Would my art continue to live on long after I die, or would it die right along with me?  Not really knowing the answer, since I am unable to predict the future, I decided to take matter into my own hands and see if I could create the legacy that I wanted to leave behind.
