Who knew one conversation with Teresa Stern, while helping my daughter raise money for her Girl Scout troop at their car wash, located at Hardees in Harrisburg NC, would lead to a great opportunity to help raise money for a scholarship fund for a future Hickory Ridge High School senior.
Teresa Stern, Harrisburg ARTwalk Coordinator & Event Planner, kindly brought her car over to get washed and to donate to Girl Scout Troop 1050. While the girls washed her car we had a delightful conversation. As I learned about Teresa and what she was doing for Harrisburg and local area Artists, I knew I wanted to get involved to help her vision grow the Harrisburg NC community and "Just Make It Happen!"
Later, Teresa and I managed to connect on LinkedIn and she took me up on my offer! On the morning of the event, my daughter and I set out to volunteer not sure what to expect. It was a unique experience for both of us. I got to know Teresa more as the day’s events went on. I sure was appreciative of the cup of coffee from Rocky River Coffee Company and was brought lunch from Hawthornes Pizza (They have my new favorite waffle fries, which are by the way, what I consider, worth it calories and total yum!)
There were things about the experience we learned that will continue to improve the event. The next Harrisburg ARTwalk will be Saturday, August 16th. You won’t want to miss it. There should be more local artists and vendors participating (i.e., crafts, jewelry, painting, photography, pottery, unique gifts). We had many asking to go ahead and sign up for the next one. The interest is building and ideas for the next Harrisburg ARTwalk are growing. Teresa is hoping to have more volunteers, donations and sponsors because without them the event would not be possible.
Please share the information about the event.

I look forward to the next one for sure!! Here are photos I took showing a variety of local Artists and their unique work.
“A Loose wire will cause a Fire”
After meeting with Mike and Kristin Nance for the first time, I could tell they knew what they wanted in a website, but needed some help in “Just making it happen”. Our ideas unfolded and we brainstormed together. As I listened, I began to visualize! We got started and it really turned out eye catching. To read more on this project visit my portfolio.
