Just one of those days. October 18, 2015 15:31

Today seems to be one of those days when my to-do list is DAUNTING. It also just so happens to be raining. Two things that make me want to curl up on the couch and read a book. Instead I'm trying to remember that I've been given a lot to be thankful for. Clothes to fold, rooms to clean, children to raise, food to cook...my life, my to-do list, is really blessing upon blessing.

A little fun decorating a toddler's bedroom... August 10, 2015 15:01

You guys. I get to redo every one of my kids' room. Daunting, YES. But EXCITING all the same! We're not moving or anything fun like that, but we all need a bit of change around here! I get that switcheroo-itch every now and again. Do you?

First up...my youngest's room. He's a year and a half and oh so fun! Since he's quite the ball of energy, I want his space to be playful, but still have that calming affect. Here's my wish list for the little guy's room (really, more like ideas to play with, but a girl can dream right?!)...

Well, I'm off to clean, organize, purge and DECORATE :) Oh, and side note, I still have a teenage boy's room and a shared little girls' room to play with, so stay tuned!

Hello, Friend! May 07, 2015 17:53

Let me introduce myself: 

In 2010, I left my career in engineering to stay home with my kiddos and couldn't be happier! I love having the time to play chase, read the same stories over and over, cook new things, make an ATTEMPT at organization, and actually finish those craft projects that always seem to sit unfinished. (Well...sometimes. My husband might argue with that last one). I love decorating…especially coming up with ways to re-purpose found items. But I also love creating things from scratch. As much as I love math (weird, I know), I love art and graphic design more. A lot more. I like things that are linear, but my rebellious side loves things that are whimsical. My style reflects that…urban, rustic-industrial, with touches of the feminine side. 

To me, each creative endeavor starts as an {Epiphany}…and this is my little {Corner} of the world to share some of those with you. Thanks for stopping by!

Some off-topic facts:  I really love lists  ///  I’m a bit of a ditz, and definitely a klutz  ///  I hate laundry. With a passion.  ///  I love the way paint changes a room, but I've been know to leave a room half-finished...for a LONG while. Seriously...over a year :)  ///  I’m a dreamer  ///  I used to be very organized (ask my mom!) but then trained myself otherwise after having kids  ///  I love a good escape novel (James Rollins, Stephen Lawhead, Vince Flynn)  ///  Any of my “reading” these days is actually via an audiobook…these kiddos of mine keep me on the go!  ///  Camping or lying around on the beach is my favorite pastime…better yet, if it’s possible to combine the two, I’m in heaven  ///  Someday I want to travel the world with a one-way ticket and no plan whatsoever  ///  I pretty much have the best husband ever; he puts up with all of my quirks…even the piles of laundry needing to be folded :)
