A New Attitude

I came into blogging with a desire to share my projects and to help others. If my only readers are my sweet sisters, that was okay with me. But as soon as I started blogging and reading TOO many other fabulous blogs and scanning pinterest and comparing myself to others I started to doubt myself. I started trying to determine which post was "blog worthy" and which wasn't and half my projects were never posted. 

It has been a few months since my last post, and I am okay with that. I am not here to have a million sponsors and followers or make a gazillion dollars, (although that would be nice.) I am not here to spend every second of my life on the internet and ignoring everything else.  No, my goal is to help others. To encourage one person to try something they didn't think they could. Because if I can do it, ANYONE can. And I sincerely mean that. I am just a normal stay at home mom of four children, who loves to be creative and cook on a budget. That's it. 

And so with a new and improved attitude, I will be posting several transformations from the last little while that haven't made it to my blog. I also will be sharing some of my frames that I have been making for our local boutiques. I love making frames because they allow me to be daring, creative --I am kind of a wimp--and colorful on a small scale. No two are exactly alike ever. Sometimes its the structure of the frame, or the colors, or the way they distress is different. I love the variety--and how each frame takes on its own unique beauty. 

Thank you to my sweet mom and sisters who always encourage me and to my husband who always fills in the gaps when I need help!



  1. I'm so happy you are back! I found you last year and have bookmarked you while checking every once in awhile to see if you posted;)I think it's okay that when projects don't turn out perfect-good to know I'm not the only one that has those doubts;) but I love seeing new and fun ideas that I can attempt to create:)

    I would love to see a tutorial on your frames if you don't mind sharing how you made them..they are beautiful!

    1. Thank you Raquel, your comment made my day! I will be doing a tutorial on my frames soon!
