In today's world of business it's easy to get caught up in the mindset that we want to work from home. Ideally this means you do work, in your pj's from home, right?!

I've worked from our home for almost a decade. During the past 10 years I've learned so much, some lessons easier than others.

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.

Moms Fill Your Cup

Happy Friday Friends!

This season is one of transition for me. All 4 of my babies are in school! Owen is just in preschool but its absolutely bitter sweet that he likes going. I'm sure many Momma's out there can relate. 

We as Moms often put ourselves on the back burners as we're so busy making meals, doing laundry, changing diapers, taking kids to practice, caring for our spouse and careers that we are often surviving on fumes.
A group of fellow Momma's and I, in all walks of life have created a closed group to help with just that.
In our group You'll find:
  • Inspiration.
  • Tips to make motherhood simpler.
  • Coupons and money saving sources.
  • Friendship!
  • And much more.
If your someone who is feeling like your cup is empty I invite you to come and join us at, Moms Fill Your Cup .

Re-Purposed into Wine Cabinet

A friend asked me to re-purpose this old record cabinet into a wine cabinet. 

It is such a gem of a piece but the top was trashed. It took a LOT of sanding but so worth it.
I tore out the old record slats to make room for wine.
I cut a few 1x12 board to fit into the cabinet.

then once I had everything into place I stained. 
Isn't the detail beautiful!

And the finished product!
Have a great weekend friends!
