3 Steps to creating an Inviting Home

Our home's are a direct reflection of ourselves.
We each have different style types, needs and functions. 
Regardless of your décor there are three simple steps that you can implement to help your home to feel more inviting. 

1. Open the window dressings. 
Its so welcoming to come into a home filled with natural light! Not to mention the rooms feel bigger when you can see outdoors. 

 2. Add personal touches. 
Each style type is unique. I love the simple touches like a well placed pillow, a welcome sign or a favorite piece of pottery. Your goal isn't to over stimulate your eyes with lots of things, but rather to have touches of your personality. 
 3. Have living plants. 
Plants contribute to the feeling of wellbeing, helping you to become calmer and more optimistic (and that's how we want guests to feel when they walk into our homes) along with a dozen other health benefits.  Plus it adds an additional texture to your space that helps to give more of a inviting feeling. 

May your week be blessed and your home inviting!

A Wake-Up Story

This video explains one of the reasons we choose to shop from an eco friendly conscious manufacture.

The amount of chemicals and toxins that are in our daily routines is staggering and studies have found direct links to allergies, asthma, skin conditions, reproductry problems and even cancer.

In February of this year a study was released stating that cleaning products are as bad for our lungs as smoking 20 cigarettes a day (Read more about that study HERE).




I truly believe as parents its one of our duties to provide the best that we can for our children. Switching where we shop for our necessities is just a small step but has provided a big impact for our overall health. Check out all of the resources that are available at http://www.feeldolivewe.com

Transformation Tuesday: Winter Flower Pots

The countdown to spring is on! 
We've finally seen some warm days and the snow is melting and I can now see my front yard again. And its a bit dull.
 I spent about 10 minutes to liven it up and didn't spend a dime. 
 Our local eclectic company trimmed some trees by our home this past week and left the trimmings next to the trees. 
 I grabbed the handsaw and chopped up the branches so they would fit in my pots that we're feeling so very sad. 
Gives our dirt driveway a little green in the mist of all of the dry grass, mud and bland yard appearance this time of year. 

 There was enough clippings from the branches that I was able to fill the pot on the front porch as well to change up the winter décor. 
Wishing you all a week full of wellness!

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.

Gather

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! 

gather:
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.
