10 Dreamy Pantry Doors

This is a little dreaming here on my end!!! 
Our Laundry Room also serves as a bit of a pantry at our house. Its conveniently right off my kitchen BUT there is no door between the two rooms. I love the idea of a visually stimulating piece of art that serves a purpose as well. These doors are stunning...

What to LOOK for when Looking to Work from Home!

Looking to Work from Home? 

That's something that a large amount of Americans are aiming for and its projected that 50% of the American workforce will be working from home by 2020.

As you start searching for a way to earn an income for your family that allows you to do so from the comfort of your home, you should be aware of a few things. 

5 Things To Look For When Looking To Work From Home

  1. Look for a company that is reputable! This is by far my #1 thing to be aware of as your searching. Make sure you partner with a company that has an A+ rating with the BBB. 
  2. Get to know the compensation plan! Its important to know what activities are required of you and what your income will look like if you become a part of that company.  
  3. Don't buy into the "Ground Floor" opportunities! {Learn more about the "Ground Floor" scheme by clicking HERE} If a company is promoting a "Ground Floor" or "Get in Early" concept, doesn't that mean that the people who join at a later date, will be unsuccessful? 
  4. Know how much of your work is truly at home. It was important to me to be able to know I would be 100% home based with my kids schedule. You should know upfront if you will be required to travel, attend meetings, etc. 
  5. Be clear on how many hours must be worked each week! Some companies are flexible in allowing you to carve out your own schedule. With 4 kids this is huge for me
Its crucial as your scouring through information that you find a company that is reputable, honest and will provide your family with a reliable income! As I was searching years ago I found myself asking these questions repeatedly making sure I wouldn't put myself in the mist of a bad work environment.  

Here's to You!

Tall, Dark & Handsome

This baby wasn't much to see when I first got it but had "good bones".  
But now... 
...I absolutely love it!
I used graphite black on the exterior, distressed and clear coat of wax. On the interior of the drawers I painted them a country grey, replaced the old hardware with new and NOW its o so Handsome! I took this piece with me to our recent White Barn Treasures Event and it was a hit and now has a new home.
Have a great weekend Friends!

Just Thinking Thursday!

Sometimes in life we do have to become our own hero.

Sometimes life throws curve balls at you that you feel you'll never be able to escape or overcome.

Sometimes you have to find a way to break free of the cycle your on.

And sometimes YOU realize YOU are much stronger and capable that you ever imagined. 
Happy Thursday!!!!

Custom Flour Sack Kitchen Towels

I'm in love with some of my newest creations! 
These are custom Flour Sack Kitchen Towels. I think these are just the cutest little addition to a kitchen. 
These will only be available at my favorite fall event.... The White Barn Treasures Event will be Saturday October 8th. Counting down the days!
Creating beautiful things helps me to clear my mind, brings on some healthy brain juices and its almost like free therapy, hah. Each day I thank my lucky stars I have the ability to be home to do things like this that I enjoy!
These towels we're fairly simple to make. I used my Silhouette to create designs that I loved and cut them onto heat transfer material and followed the directions from there.
