When a painter is picking a new paint color….

gray paint colors

  Around Christmas time of this year, I decided I was over all of the gold paint in my house.  And by "over it", I mean..... I wanted it gone like yesterday. So I decided I wanted to repaint the walls in all of the common rooms of my house. But wall color is REALLY a big deal to me.  Like REALLY important.  I gotta have colors on my walls that I feel good in and that I love.  I can't be "kinda" in love with my walls. I need to … [Read more...]

My saddest St. Patrick’s Day parade and how it freed me

th8YG8CDBN

  It was St. Patrick's Day, 1999.  Doesn't that just sound like eons ago?  And yet, I can remember it like it was yesterday. It was my first day at a new job.  I had been hired at an "up and coming" telecommunications company as a software developer.  They had offered me a generous salary.  And a pager (back then that was the bomb.com) and a little security card that I had to swipe to get into my department.   I felt semi-important … [Read more...]

I have my own Big 12!

My hubby is in watching Big 12 basketball on tv.  I barely know what the Big 12 even is, but I was thinking my DIY videos are on sale right now.  And that's kind of like the Big 12 .... for creative people. Except I have 15 videos.  So, it would actually be the "Big 15".  But, it's close, right? Anyway, spring is the PERFECT time to start a painting project.  If you've been considering fauxing your bathroom walls or garage doors or kitchen … [Read more...]

An encouragement for mothers

Yesterday, I went to my favorite running park to get a jog in. Yes, it was my second workout of the day (I have only two things to say about that. #1) Cadbury eggs. #2) I am meeting The Magnolia Mom next week. You ladies get me?) Anyhoo, so as I was jogging along, I suddenly felt my heart just achinggggggg to have my kids with me. Just two years ago, Ava came to this park with me often. I would push her in a stroller while I worked out. You … [Read more...]

ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!!

I have been bursting at the seams for today to get here.  I have a new training class to announce!!!  If you have a business of any kind...... PLEASE PAY ATTENTION. Just 6 months ago, I was like so many other people and just playing around on Pinterest.  I was pinning clothes I wanted to buy and paint colors I wanted to try and food I would never actually cook. But then one day I actually started paying attention to the google analytics for my … [Read more...]

Pretty much EVERYTHING is paintable

after

Yep, pretty much EVERYTHING IS paintable.  And if you ask my hubby right now, he will probably tell you that I'm painting almost everything in our house that isn't nailed down.  My quest to go from gold to gray continues and nothing is safe! And here is the deal, I would love to go REPLACE every thing I own to go with my new painting scheme..... but it's just not in our budget.  So, I'll use a lot of what I have and CHANGE it.  And you can do … [Read more...]
