1st day of spring and a special announcement

Spring is here! YAY!!!! And with that comes a super special MM Ink announcement..............

MM Ink is now a FULL TIME calligraphy and design studio!!!! 
I am thrilled to be able to devote 100% of my working time to something that makes me so so happy! 
I LOVE calligraphy!

Many people thought I only did calligraphy; but before this year, I wore this lovely MM Ink hat primarily at night after a full time job as a Senior Auditor for a cable company, and putting our 3 kiddos to bed. Yep, I studied Accounting in college, graduated and got my CPA license soon after. But I always wanted to be a full time professional calligrapher....I just did not know when.

Around the beginning of 2009, I had a talk with my hubby and we decided that I would make the transition in October 2009. Well that did not happen - we got our sweet baby #3 instead :). So we changed plans and at the end of 2010, we decided that the new date will be March 2012.

I prayed so hard for God to show me His plan for me and to reassure me that this was the right time. Well, He answered in a BIG way! Last August, the company that I was working for announced that they were going to outsource the accounting function to a company overseas and hence, eliminate my position (and many others). My termination date was set for September 30; but due to a project they needed me to help with and my severance package, guest what....that put me right at March 16, 2012! God is so good and I know this is His plan.

I've spent the last 3 months gearing up for this day and I get excited every morning starting my day doing what I LOVE!!! I feel extremely blessed to have this opportunity and I am so thankful for everyone who supported me since the very beginning and throughout this journey (especially my wonderful husband Lars, my 3 darling little ones, Mommy, Mom, Patyence, Jan, Aisha, MTH, and my calligraphy teachers and mentors - Sheila Waters and Pat Blair). And the wonderful people and clients I get to work with make it all the more special (and fun!!!). It has been an incredible ride and the best is yet to come! Stay tuned!!! :)
