For a while, I have had a vision. I dreamed of a home for Sugar Snap. In my dreams, I saw high ceilings, exposed brick walls, natural light, hardwood floors, and a modern artsy feel. I also longed that this space be a place that is surrounded by other artist and those who loved the arts. A space so to speak that brought more art to the community.
A few weeks ago, while at a little one’s birthday party, I chased my little 11 month old up a flight of stairs, and down a hallway. There he climbed up on to a glass door and knocked as if he wanted to go in. I took a look through the tinted window and behind that tint I saw everything I had imagined and it was empty! Then it hit me, I was in a place that loved the arts and was a facility for classes, galleries and events and more. I immediately went and ask about the space and to my surprise they were in the process of renting the space.
To make a long story short, after lots of praying we submitted a proposal knowing that we were not the only ones wanting the space. We were not 100% sure that we would be chosen, but none the less continued to believe that the space was ours. Today, I got a phone call from the Executive Director. She wanted me to know that the space is ours and that they looked forward to having Sugar Snap be a part of the center.
For those of you who do not know about the Anderson Arts Center, please check them out. They offer so much for children and adults of all ages and of course welcome your support. My little one is even having his birthday party there this weekend. It’s a great place to celebrate.
So I am proud to show you the new home of Sugar Snap. (Imagine me waving to you from the balcony where the arrow is).
Keep up with us for sure to see all of our updates. Lots of decorating to do ( I will be posting the space and before and after pics) and party planning as well. Yes, there will be a grand opening and you will not want to miss it!
This would not be possible without you guys! Thanks for loving us in the Upstate and we look forward to lots of sweetness for years to come.
