Nurturing our imagination and allowing ourselves the freedom to discover who we are and what we most enjoy doing for ourselves and others is an important key to creating and sustaining our business success and finding our own unique niche business market.

I recently met an amazing artist, Maura Marini Shumake with Stella Bella Glass, while attending a local fundraising event at the Walter Aiken House in Fuquay-Varina. Maura has a gift for creating steampunk jewelry, glorious stained glass decor, and precious memorabilia for loved ones.
During this recent event I was the luckiest raffle winner of the day when I won her magnificent and truly unique kaleidoscope made of stained glass, gears, jewels, copper, and more. Not only was her kaleidoscope mind tickling to look at, it provided each viewer with a breathtaking and awe inspiring view of this artists imagination.

You get a rare view into how amazing her mind works to create such intricate masterpieces that not only provide visual pleasure, but each viewer the opportunity to interact with this piece of art.
By allowing her imagination the freedom to explore different mediums and techniques she has created pieces that are highly sought after, enjoyed and cherished.
