Welcome! I’m Aleta, a Jane of all Trades. All the experts say pick one thing and be good at it. Good strategy, but what if you don’t want to pick?
I love art, travel, design, events, and numbers. I can’t pick just one so I dabble in a lot of different things. The thing I am most good at – making things pretty. So that’s my one thing.
I am a full time finance and operations director and a part time graphic designer and event planner/decorator. I have several etsy shops catering to my many interests. Whatever time I have left, I wander. My favorite pastime is travel.
My personal life just got more interesting as I got married on January 1st of this year. It was spur of the moment but not unplanned. Check out our journey here – [wedding]
My main passion is travel and I plan to see all 50 states and all 7 continents. I’m only a fraction into my goal but so far I’ve had some amazing trips home and abroad and have visited my favorite place on earth – PARIS! – a total of four times.
I have been a graphic designer for over 15 years. I have never know a time when I didn’t love art. Colors, shapes, textures – it all just draws me in and I get excited. I love being creative. Whether DIY, digital, print, web based or mixed media – I do it all.
Event Planning and Decorating [events]
Who doesn’t love a good party. I do for sure. I started out planning my own parties and people loved my designs so much, I started planning for others. Some clients I plan the whole event while others I just do the decor.
I create digital art collages using my travel photos as a base as well as mixed media canvases incorporating dried flowers and greenery.
My long range retirement plan is to own a dairy farm with my husband on the gulf coast of Mississippi. Both my husband and my father were born and raised in Mississippi and I spent many summers there as a child. After a 30 year absence, I went back to visit about 8 years ago and and fell in love. We plan on raising goats and sheep and produce and sell high quality cheese.
