Tired of your bronze light fixtures yet?


    So lately I have been getting tired of some of my heavy looking, bronze colored chandeliers.  I still like the SHAPE of them, I just want to lighten them up.... both visually and how they feel in the room.   So I decided to paint this one which I think made my main man wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy happier than me buying a new one and him having to take this one down and rewire another.  I remembered to take the … [Read more...]

Yes, we unplugged our kids (taking a break from the crazy train)

Feet Warming Near The Fireplace

(NOTE:  I've been sitting on this blog post for a few months.  I wrote it months ago and then chickened out on posting because I know I'll get some push back on it.  But I've talked to even more mommas lately whose hearts are aching to take their family nights back and for them, I will be brave and post.) So let me first start by saying, I love sports.  I grew up playing sports.  I love having my kids in extracurricular activities.  I am not … [Read more...]

My most productive work day this year

I want to tell you about my work day Friday.  It was my most productive work day of 2015 thusfar. I got up. I went to the gym. I had quiet time and prayer. I answered email for 15 minutes. I spent 3 hours at my kid's school. I went for a wog (a walk/jog) because the weather in Kansas City was ridiculous. I journaled. I listened to some great podcasts from Pastor Steven Furtick. I soaked in a bubble bath. I tried out my new … [Read more...]

January down time – time to get crap done

Slow Sign  Yellow Road Label Vector Illustration

  Can I type "crap" and still love Jesus?  I think I can. Ha. Every year in January, my business slows down some.  I used to freak out and think I was going under and stay awake with a tummy ache at night (so dramatic).  Until I got wise to the fact that after getting a good butt kicking every November and December (everyone wants their house painted before the holidays!), my January down time was actually r-e-f-r-e-s-h-i-n-g. I … [Read more...]
