My Dream

I started painting murals back in 2007 as a hobby painting for friends and family and then eventually my children after they were born.  I knew I wanted to make a business out of it, but whenever I started I would get pregnant or we would move and my dream would be put on hold. Through all the stopping and starting I always knew that one day it would happen.


I initially called my business Tots 2 Teens designs because I like bright colors and child friendly designs, but I eventually didn't want to limit myself to just kids and bedroom home murals.


I spent the next few years trying to come up with the right business name. I would ask for advice, take polls, but I was stuck.  Then one day I came up with Heart of Sarah.  I loved it because I love painting and art and that is where my heart is.  I didn't need to ask anyone's opinion or get any advice, that was what my business would be called; Heart of Sarah.

That was in 2012, and even though I had a business name, it still was a hobby for quite a few more years.  

I started working in the kitchen cabinet field, with the excuse that I would finally be using my college degree in interior design, even though I also KNEW that this was not a company of integrity and would NOT last. 

I was right, it did not last long, but while working there I was introduced to the queen of networking.  She introduced me to BNI, the business networking international company.  I knew that was something I needed to take the leap into actually starting my business.  I also knew if I was going to put the investment into that membership I better be prepared to work. 

That's what I have been doing ever since.  It was part-time at first, but quickly became full-time, and has been full-time ever since. 

Now I design bedroom home murals, painted business murals, and painted school mascots.  I create hand-painted murals in Tennessee to Alabama.

I am to the point now where I am learning to say No. Not to take every project that comes my way.  Keeping the stress away as much as possible, and doing the projects that I want to do.

It's been an exciting and hard couple of years, and I can truly say that I love what I do.  It's not a job, its my dream. 


I can't wait to see where my dream will take me next.
