These are just a few of my favorite jobs/ faux finishes that I've done...

I'm Daphne and I'm not sure how to start this introduction, so I'm going to just jump right in... My Tribe has always been the women in my family and a couple of very close friends, until recently. I lost my grandmother 4 years ago and then my mom who was my best friend, my sister, and my mother all rolled into one beautiful woman was diagnosed with breast cancer shortly after. She fought a very long, hard battle and we really thought that she was going to beat it until they started finding more and more and this time last year found out that she wasn't going to beat it. I did what I had to do and took care of her and gave her every bit of love that I could possibly give her until she passed away, in my home, on August 20th of last year. I feel like the universe smacked me upside the head and sent me spinning. For the last year I've been spinning and everytime I feel like I can catch my breath it's smacks me again. I've just spent the last couple of months watching my mother-in-law die of cancer, repeating everything I saw with my mother and in the middle of it all my cat died too. I'm not even sure who I am anymore but I know that I have things to do I have big dreams. Cancer has taken three beautiful women from my life and two others, my cousin and one of my very best friends, have walked out of my life... for reasons untold, they just walked away. I turned 46 last week and my daughter is pregnant with my first grandchild. Everything has changed so much and yet I still get up every day and go to the same unfulfilling job, working with all men. I swear, most days I feel like Wendy in Neverland with a bunch of Lost Boys. Every day I feel like I need to be somewhere else. I need to be in my own space, doing my own thing, making my own rules. I need to be surrounded by positive female energy . I feel that I'm at a time in my life when I am rebuilding My Tribe, rebuilding my girl crew. I'm really looking forward to this journey with all of you and I hope that we can Inspire each other to become our best selves. Thank you for listening. Nice to meet you ❤
