Feel, Do, Live WELL

In life we miss 100% of the opportunities we never take. 

Often the way we feel plays heavily on the decisions we make.

If you feel well you can do well and in turn you live well! 

My wish for you today as you move through the minutes of your routines is that you find wellness from within. That you feel content to enjoy each moment so you can truly LIVE WELL!

A Season for Everything

We have had snow on the ground for weeks now. Its beautiful and brings moisture yet leaves me so cold and seems so bare out. 

A few days ago the kids got home from school and wanted to sled on our snow pile mountain. As I walked past the backdoor God stopped me and I felt an overwhelming feeling of gratefulness!

The smiles that I saw we're of true happiness and joy. Laughter and giggles filled the stillness of our driveway, and I was brought to tears. You see, I had been so focused on how bitterly cold it was and how it made me feel that I missed out on how truly beautiful this season is. 

Ecclesiastes 3:1 says this... 
"There is a time for everything,    and a season for every activity under the heavens:" 

A TIME for EVERYTHING and a SEASON for every activity under the heavens! Don't let the "coldness" of the season stop you from finding time, an open heart and joy in enjoying the activities that are right in front of you. 

Be present. 

Embrace the moment that your in right now in your life.

For this is the season and the specific time in your life that God created you for.

As I build each peace for clients I pray over the piece, where it will be placed and over the people who will see it. That their home will be filled with joy and laughter, that each person who sits next to a piece will find peace and feel loved, and that the family who receives the piece be blessed beyond measure.

There is no exception to this gorgeous 4 foot long gather sign! 

1. come together; assemble or accumulate.
2. bring together and take in from scattered places or sources.
3. infer; understand.
4. develop a higher degree of.

We're weeks away from Valentines day! 
My house needs a little splash of seasonal d├ęcor so I made this LOVE sign and I LOVE it!!! 
Check out the step by step below so you can make your own. 

I started with a piece of used wood out of my scrap pile. This project can be made any size and honestly with any type of wood.

I have some stencils that I've used for other projects that I chose to use. If you don't have stencils you can purchase a pack at your local hobby store or print off letters of your size and style on card stock, cut the letters out and you will have your very own stencil. 

Then use white paint to fill your stencil. I used two coats on this particular project to get the desired look I wanted.

I then sanded the piece of wood after the letters had dried. I wanted this piece to look old and faded.

You'll notice I spaced out my letters enough to place my heart. 

 These adorable hearts we're purchased at my local Hobby store for under $5.00 each.
 Then glue your hearts into your desired placement on your sign and hang! Simple yet adorable!

A plan for your finances

For a lot of us, as we started the year one of our new years resolutions was to take control of our finances. But what action do you have in place to do so?
Yesterday I was able to go to the grocery store and buy the things our family needed. My cart was full! And it humbled me. In January 2007 our budget was far different. We struggled to buy things like a gallon of milk. I felt small and defeated every time the monthly bills we're due or needing a tank of gas in the car. 

The reason I'm sharing this is for those of you in that boat now. Or maybe your not to that extreme but need to put purpose to your finances. This year my mission is to share the tools, resources and what I've learned over the past 11 years that has blessed our family and our finances. 

I want to help you to gain control, gain peace of mind, encourage you and help you gain choices! 

Here's to 2018 and becoming financially well! 

the first step

Starting today I want you to vow to take control of your finances. To gain that "No Matter What" mentality that will drive you forward with purpose to stop living in this cycle. Lets roll up our sleeves and design a plan! 

One of the things that I implemented years ago was a system for keeping track of our bills, expenses and knowing what we owed (and we owed a lot!!!).

Next your going to put action into place! This isn't a race but a journey as you design a plan that WILL work for your family. 
It's easy to start with January as some of your bills you've already paid. Look back through your check register and write down the bill, amount you paid, when the due date was and the balance (if applicable) for that account. 
Next, write out your goal. 
If you aim at nothing, you’ll hit it every time.  – Zig Ziglar

Is your goal something like: 
"To gain control of our finances".
"To have more money than month".
"To keep a positive bank balance all month". 
"To pay off our home".

What ever your goal is for the month/year, write it down! This will drive you forward to continue to be purposeful with your finances. 

Here's to your financial wellness in this new year!

DIY Christmas Chalkboard Gift

When at all possible I prefer to give non-electronic gifts. I think there is a little piece of magic inside receiving something that's handmade as well. Here is a DIY project that anyone can make and will provide lots of entertainment, no matter the age. 

DIY tic-tac-toe Chalkboard

 Here's what you'll need Chalk Board Spray paint, a ruler, masking tape and a piece of lumber. I used a 1x10 (the board I used measured out to be 9 1/4 across making the measurements easy). 
I chose to make a few different styles by staining my first piece. 

 Then measure out your lumber and apply your masking tape. I would also recommend taping the edges so you can avoid bleeding from the spray paint onto the edges.

 You will then head outside and spray paint your piece of wood. I applied two coats of Chalk Board spray paint allowing it to dry for 20 min before I applied a second layer.

 For a little more fun you can paint the backside with your chalk board paint as well. 
Partner your board with some chalk and you have a perfect handmade gift. 
Christmas blessings!
