How it all Began -- Part I

One year ago today, Christina Studio Designs opened for business, and my life has changed so much in that time.

It all started ...

I worked for a company called MITRE for three and a half years of my life. I thought I loved my job, and was thrilled with all the opportunities that were presented to me there. It was what, at the time, I would of considered ... my dream job.

I felt accomplished working for MITRE. I felt like I had made something of myself and was was helping the government in the process. I was even being recognized for my work.

I won the coin competition, and saw my design produced on an actual coin. I was given a plaque and bonus check. I was allowed to design several briefings for high ranking folks. Below is a photo I took of several MITRE employees that was featured in the yearly calendar MITRE releases.

I bought my very first car during this time. It was my baby ... and still is. {even if it is going through the process of being sold} I had never been much of a "risk-taker" and I think people were expecting me to a purchase a four-door family car. LOL

Below is "Jasmime" the prize of my years at MITRE.

Everything on the outside seemed to be going well. I had no idea that on September 1st, things would change forever ...
