The last few weeks have been nothing short of A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

I know I haven’t posted in awhile, but I’ve got lots to share!

For starters, I officially launched my company, Color Vision!

Check out the cover for my launch party invite.

Color Vision Launch Party Invite Cover- June 2010

Color Vision was born in 2008 as an interior decorating consulting company.  This summer I hosted the official launch event at my home in downtown Detroit to showcase my personal decorating style, highlight Color Vision: The Blog and display my very first art collection, ART by Raynée!

So many of my closest friends came to help celebrate the occasion (despite the mega down pour).  DJ Slo Poke, one of my absolute favorite DJs, spinned all the right classics.  Trust me my area rug took a beating.  I’m pretty sure it was the early 90s mix that did it ; ) Guests also enjoyed a plethora of tasty cheeses and carefully selected wines.  It truly was a fun and celebratory evening.

Two days later, I had the pleasure of serving as the Metro Detroit Ambassador for the Shaken & Stirred Book Tour!  Fellow Hoosier, Crystal Black Davis, captured the audience as she read from her spicy novel and engaged the group in stimulating dialogue centered around themes from the book.

And as if all that weren’t enough, I was fortunate enough to show my collection publicly for the first (of what I hope will be many =) time at the “Eve of Eyes” event at the College for Creative Studies.  I couldn’t believe it!  I bumped into a friend at the Shaken & Stirred book reading that just so happened to be coordinating the “Eve of Eyes” event and asked me if I was interested in showing my collection.  “Heck Yeah!” I replied.  I was one of two artists featured.

Not bad for my first week as an artist ; )
