New Blog Love

Do what you love, love what you! Literally stolen from a //“>Life is Good t-shirt, just there on a rectangle on the shirt hanging in my bathroom. My Mother had passed and I was trying to figure out, “What do I do NOW!” I have 2 kids in high school and 1 kid in grade school! I admit ADHD took hold. I did job hop and dabble in an Etsy shop. I did learn very much as I wandered through 4 jobs. All of that aside. I am very lucky that I get to do what I love and I do love what I do! I still have an Etsy shop. And yes that has changed too! I make teething necklaces for Moms to wear when babies are teething. I still work in a variety of media, my current favorite is hand lettering with chalk and chalk paint pens on chalkboards. I make them for family and gift giving.

It has taken me a long time to, do what I love and love what I do! My very favorite thing to do that I love the very most is to do the best that I can at taking care of my family!

5 Reasons that compelled me to blog!



  1. While at a Business Boutique conference I attended sessions about blogging. I was not at the conference to become a blogger! I was there to get some tips for my Etsy shop. I felt this experience made me want to blog. If you want to blog get educated sign up for Blogging University  this post is one of the assignments in BU.
  2. One of the hardest questions for me to answer is, What do you do? A blog is helping me to answer this question, I like and love to do many things. I am now able to somewhat compartmentalize all of the tasks and things I love. A blog helps you to organize your thoughts.
  3. It really helped me to write descriptive adjectives about myself that are positive and fun. Such as talented, excited, fun loving, expressive, artsy, craftsy, realistic, happy and much, much more. Use a thesaurus!
  4. Social media is just waiting to hear what I have to say. Really just kidding! I am just trying to psych myself into it.
  5. Go ahead and just do it. In one of the sessions at the conference our speaker said, “just go ahead and PUBLISH”! I agreed and I did!

God made me on purpose with a purpose! I am very excited to join this fun outlet of energy and creativity! Blog on!

Christy Wright’s Business Boutique 2016

Last weekend I attended the Business Boutique it was an uplifting experience. Over 3000 women and a sprinkling of men. I expected to receive tips for my Etsy shop. I did realize that my works are worth more than I had valued them. Plus I learned that a blog would really fit my life. I do have lots of life experiences that will serve this blog well. I became revived at the thought that I really could do this. 

I have been to several conferences over the last 30 years including Mary Kay, Creative Memories, Jenzabar and others. I have not ever been to a conference that was as uplifting, energizing and actually exciting! The keynote speaker was Christine Caine of Propel Women Author of Unashamed I do believe that her life is a miracle given to this daughter of God! #daughter Thank you for this speaker!

No excuses, no fear! I was made with purpose, for a purpose. Just like K-LOVE radio positive and encouraging!

Daily Prompt: Second Thoughts

via Daily Prompt: Second Thoughts

With my new blog I have not had 1 Second Thought! It has been a really fun to find out what I like to do and what I love. I am at a point in my life I don’t have time for Second Thoughts. Let’s just say I no longer buy green bananas. Those are for people that have lots of time. With the Presidential Election being today the Second Thoughts have been going on most of the year. Just do it! Go out and vote! America is Great, use your vote to prove it.

10 Really Great Reasons to start this blog today!

This story begins at Christy Wright’s Business Boutique conference in Nashville, TN! What an empowering and exciting weekend. I expected to come home with information about how to run my Etsy shop better. I did get a lot of valuable tips. There seemed to be something missing until I attended a class about blogs. Aha and light bulb moment all at once. I bought and began building this blog immediately. It revived me. As I began to build it, it seemed significant to add my daughter Lauren. She and I are always brainstorming, discussing, sewing, crafting, decorating, painting………the list goes on and on. You will see the fruits of our processes.
