Spring White Barn Treasures Sale

I had so much fun at the Spring White Barn Treasures Sale! Good friends, good food, perfect venue!
It's so fun to create with my hands and build, re-purpose and make things beautiful again. Below are a few of the things I created along with the fun Sugar Scrub the girls made.

 Every time I create something I have this verse in mind...
"...whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God".
He has given me this gift and I chose to use it to glorify Him!

How Many Hours Do I Work?

One of the most common questions I get asked is "How many Hours do you work each week?" or a variation of that question.                                                                                                                 

 I personally feel that in order to be successful in owning your own business you need to set specific hours each week that our devoted strictly to building your business.                                           


The beauty of owning your own business is you are able to pick where those
 hours come from each week.
 I typically work 20 hours each week doing income generating activities. This allows me to devote time to our four kids, making meals and keeping our home running properly. 

I often get asked this as well "How many hours will I need to work to be successful?" That is 100% based upon your own personal activity when owning your own business and needs to be in line with what your personal and financial goals are. As a business coach I can help someone create a road map of what one's schedule would need to look like depending on the financial goals needed but it is up to the individual to find the time in their calendar.

One of the greatest advantages to working from the comfort of your own home and being your own boss is the fact that your able to be in control of your own clock. And that my friends is Time Freedom!

From Poor to Rich

In today's world we all want to to "rich", and it would be great if we we're all born independently wealthy but the reality is financially most of us didn't come into the world with a vault of cash at our disposal.

If you woke up today, have family and friends who love you, have a roof over your head and food in your belly - you are rich! And let your spirit shine through your richness! Once you transform your views you will have a much more positive outlook and all of those gifts will be brought back to you 10 fold!

How To Force Flower Bulbs Indoor

 I'm so excited for spring, warm weather and FLOWERS! 
Seeing as how it's February and in the 20s we wont have outside flowers anytime soon, so why not have some indoor spring pizazz?

What Bulbs Force Well:
  • Amaryllis:
    Blooms appear six to eight weeks after planting.
  • Paperwhites:
    Blooms appear three to five weeks after planting.
  •  Tulips
  •  Crocus
  •  Hyacinths
  •  Daffodils
 Tools You'll Need to Force:

  • Bulbs of choice
  • Container of choice
  • Dirt or Rocks
  • Water
 How to Force Bulbs in Water:

Use a pan or bowl filled with pebbles. Bury the bulbs halfway into the pebbles, with the points facing up. Fill the pan or bowl with water so that the lower quarter of the flower bulb is in the water. Make sure that the pan or bowl always has water.
How to Force Bulbs in Soil:

Flower bulbs can also be forced inside in pots filled with soil. Fill the pot with a light potting mix. Do not use soil from your garden. Plant the flower bulbs you will be forcing half to three-quarters of the way deep into the pot. The pointy tops of the bulbs should be out of the soil. Water the bulbs and keep the soil moist.

The first day of spring is just 22 days away! Here's to warm weather and pretty blooms!

5 Reason's to Prepare Supper in the Morning

For several month's now I've been preparing our evening meals in the morning. It's helped relieve some anxiety and stress and who doesn't want to get rid of those two things? 
Here are 5 Reason's why you might want to give it a try:
  1. Open my mind: I'm more creative in the morning and don't feel so rushed to throw something on the table.
  2. The afternoon rush: Between the hours of 4 -7:30 it's pure go, go, go around here when the girls get home from school. With baths, homework and all that's in between I was finding I would be crabby to my babies because I was trying to do to many things at once. 
  3. Nap time: Owen typically wakes up at 4 after his nap and wants to be held. This is very difficult when your trying to cook next to a hot stove.
  4. Homework: I'm more relaxed to help with homework, spelling words, nightly reading etc. 
  5. Clean up: It's much easier to clean up after supper if most of the dishes have already been done. All I have to do is load the dinner plates, set the timer on the dishwasher and unload the following morning.
To take planning a step further, here are 4 fool proof recipes our family loves.
