THANKS SO MUCH EVERYONE!!! I totally appreciate all of the likes, emails and comments from you and just had to send out a HUGE HUG to all those who swing by here to say hi or to check out my website :)
I started this website to help promote my artwork which pays my bills here in the Dominican Republic... it's been fun and the sales are coming in so I'm super happy about it all :)
Please feel free to drop me a line if you want to suggest something for me to add or change on my website. It's a learning experience and I'm trying to balance out my need for freedom to do my own thing while being professional enough to make it worth while for people to keep coming back here to see what is new. So any constructive criticism or input from you would be great!!!
THANKS AGAIN....SMILES, Chantelle
Good Morning and Happy Weekend All ;) Hope you slept well and wherever you live around the globe, I hope it's not raining as hard as it is here!!! Peace Out... I'll post updates in-between the power outages today... this storm is raging still :( I live on a hill and the rain has pooled everywhere!
My heart goes out to all those on flat ground areas like La Union, etc!!!! Please remember to send LISA an email if you would like to help those who've lost their homes and need supplies & shelter. If you live in this area, feel free to
drop off emergency supplies at her store in Sosua this morning...THANK YOU!!!

Tonight I was having fun nerding out and trying different settings on my editing program. I know I said no more turning my photos blue or fading them into nothingness, but I think its okay if I do it along with the rest of the 'non-me' photos...hahahaha :) #justme #artfun #befunkydotcom #mypets #IlovetheDominicanRepublic
Hey Everyone, hope you slept well and are ready to have a Terrific Thursday! We had a massive rainstorm here in the Dominican Republic last night and here are some of the photos of our area... definitely time for the community to pull together and help each other out! There are many resulting floods, mudslides and loss of life & properties in numerous areas now...
If you would like to help, please contact LISA via. Facebook to see what you can do ;) THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!! Here is a a photo of her and a link to her website: MY JOURNEY IN FLIP FLOPS
WOW.. what an awesome day so far!!! Went on a looooong walk to Encuentro, took a motoconcho from there to Cabarete where I tried out Audrey's "Blossom Fit LIfe" aquafit class ;) She is great and an awesome instructor who knows what she is doing... I highly recommend anyone who is visiting Cabarete or living here to take her classes!!! THANKS AUDREY!
Hahahaha.....it was so much fun! I was the youngest woman there, the rest were snowbirds from all over, most chatted away in French and I floundered like a beached walrus trying to keep up to them. ALL AGES enjoy these classes and every class is drop-in, so you can even swing by last minute to join & have some fitness fun!!!
Honestly, I would never have done the whole workout at home, but there was no way I was going to wimp out with these older gals kicking my butt!!! I will definitely go again! Just once a week for now, too many other changes going on right now to do more. Check out Audrey's website below for more information on private, semi-private and group classes for aqua-fit, yoga, paddle-boarding lessons, personal coaching and more! Great deals on packages of 10 classes too....
