Goodbye March, Hello April

I hope everyone had an exciting Easter and a wonderful month in March. My littles enjoyed their spring break the last week of the month following into Easter and we were busy with fun, friends and the start of our two home projects!

Let’s take a peek at what was completed for the month of March! I had one inventory piece that went out in the First Dibs Email and was picked up that week. Visit Shop Selections to get on the First Dibs List and to see what is available in the shop for purchase that is already finished ready for your home! As always, you can view what pieces are available for customization over at In the Studio.

 

I’m in love with each and every one of these pieces! I had the pleasure to complete my first ever piano alongside staining a table and bench that my client built.

If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.

We are in the last phase of completing two home projects that have been on the paper for quite some time. One, of which took me 2 years to find the perfect barn doors. There are a few sayings that come to mind about patience. Boy, did I have to remind myself countless times about waiting. Once I found my doors everything else seem to fall into place. Stay tuned in as I will share in detail in two different blog post about how I made space in my home into my official Boutique Room as well as what exciting task we did for our back patio ceiling!

Looking forward to April!

Hello April, Goodbye March

What a busy and great month March was! April Already?! I am booked out a month in advance and can not express to you enough how gracious I am to all of you! Thank you for continuing to share my work with friends and showing family members your NEW pieces in your homes!! Taking a look at what was accomplished in March has me over the moon 12 pieces and 2 mirrors.

One item that was a total of six pieces, making that project the biggest I have ever done in one sitting. There were two non custom items, a media console and a buffet, that found themselves refinished with what I had envisioned for those pieces to transform into. Farmhouse chic and rustic vintage. Both stunning and classify themselves as Statement Pieces! They are for sale, you can view them over in Shop Selections!

 

 

April. Deep inhale slow exhale. April is one of those months every year where I find myself reflecting a lot on my life.  Why in April you ask? Simple. I grow another year older. If I am lucky, more wiser. If I am blessed, more richer. haha -not materialistic rich… Rich in love. Rich in relationships. Rich in Him. With Lent drawing to the end we prepare for Easter. A new beginning.

It’s not how much we give, but how much LOVE we put into giving. – Mother Teresa

This year I have been working on inspiring others, whether it’s through the artist realm with Second Chance Charms or in my everyday personal life. However on this journey, it is me who is becoming inspired by the ones I surround myself with. My art class (I’ll explain that in April or May’s Goodbye post). Family members. Clients. Of course, friends.

A family friend reminded us that cancer has no prejudice. Thankfully now she is on the path to remission and all we can do is keep praying that her and others like her continue to be brave and not lose hope in this battle. As always continue to do your breast self examinations, you can click here for more details: National Breast Cancer. This month I was inspired to give a little something of myself. Last time I donated my hair was four years ago.  I went with Pantene Beautiful Lenghts this time around and experienced a different type of “lite” on my shoulders.

I was reminded once again to place myself in others shoes. People are often starving for a connection with one another. We get busy in our everyday lives and schedules that we do forget to “stop and smells the roses”. There is so much one can do for another person that doesn’t cost money at all. Giving is free. Smiling. Waving. Complementing. Be thankful for what we have. Thankful for what we can give. What I did a couple of weeks ago, is a small act. But a simple act that leads me in the right direction. One that makes me feel happy.

“Our lives change when our habits change”

– Matthew Kelly

I challenge you to do a good selfless act for someone; a stranger, a friend, a neighbor. It doesn’t have to be big, or fancy, or expensive. It just needs to be genuine. Then ask yourself: How did that make me feel?
