Monday Interview- Meet Joy Charde

Wanna know a little more about the Busy Mom who helped us set up our Ning site and whose name and pic you see on the side bar? I know I did. Both Joy and her shop are adorable...

- Who are you?
Joy Charde

- Where do you live?
Troy, NY

- What do you do?
Currently, I'm the business manager of the Troy Public Library, but I was teacher for 10 years before I made the career change.

- How many kids? And husbands/partners?
My husband (Luke) and I have been married for almost 11 years, and we have a wonderful 7 month old baby boy - Jude.
And so you have a shop…:

o What’s its name?
The Art Of Joy

o What do you sell?
paintings and paper goods (I'm really into paper right now)

o But how on earth do you find time!?!
That's the hard part... still trying to figure this one out. I don't have to go to work until 3pm. So I stay up way too late working on my stuff and try to sleep in a little in the morning.


- Anything else you’d like to add…
Our busy moms group rocks! You guys are awesome!

If…

- If you had a million dollars…
I would buy a lot of art supplies!

- If you were an animal…
I would probably be a beta fish. I would enjoy just hanging around in my bowl watching everyone.

- If you were a plant…
I would probably be a Jade plant, since it's easy to maintain and would pretty much grow anywhere there is sun (I'm a California girl at heart).

- If your house was on fire and you only had time to save one object it would be…
My laptop (I have everything on my computer - pics of my fam, artwork, etc.)

- If you were a famous person…
Hmmm...Maybe Brian Williams since he seems to know everything. Oh and Tim Gunn since he has such an eye for fashion!

- If you could choose to have one amazing skill…
There was this girl on the show Heroes that would watch a skill or something on TV and then she was able to do it. That's the skill that I would want...Wait, I think that's actually a super power... For skill - I want to be able to do some amazing bass guitar riffs!
