Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Monday Merchant Circle with Barb Heartstrokes

Welcome to another Monday Merchant with the PAFA team.  Hope you are all doing well today.  Grab something to drink and spend some time with Barb from Heartstrokes.  The name of her shop came about from her job has a cardiac nurse and painting.  Barb loves to paint on black screen using acrylic paints, and her dad cuts her frames from old barn wood.  Barb started off learning how to paint at a local craft store while her husband was deployed overseas.  She has branched out into designing her own patterns and is now starting to sell them.  Barbs paints for all seasons and holiday.  You will also find some supplies in her shop for you to try your own painting on.

Enjoy your visit with Barb and come back next monday for another member from the PAFA team.
