Spice, Spice, Baby

Spice, Spice, Baby

Since moving to Colorado I have been working part time as a professional organizer with my friend, Christa, at Peace Together Spaces.  It has been a lot of fun and fills my need to “sort and purge”.  Organizing other people’s spaces is a lot of fun and easier for me than organizing my own spaces (no emotional attachment to things).   Today I wrote a post for the PTS blog… let’s get those spice cabinets organized, peeps! Check it out by…

From Couch to 500….

*Warning* LOADS of Photos… This summer I have focused on my health… a big part of why I have partially “abandoned” this blog.   In February I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea and ridiculously (near dead) low levels of oxygen in my blood stream… (The last two years of my life have been a crazy medical mess.)  The doctor put me on a CPAP machine and oxygen at night and they have literally CHANGED.MY.LIFE In the first week of May…

Big HUGE News

Big HUGE News

Friends & Family… We have some crazy news! And now that all our immediate family knows I can “say it on the webs….”. hehe. This last week we had a major curve ball thrown at us.

A week ago this past Friday Brent was offered a promotion/new position at his company’s (Jab Broadband) corporate…

Black Magic – A Folksy, Doodly Focal Image Technique

Today I have a fun, folksy, doodly focal point image technique to share with you called Black Magic.  I saw this technique at SCS and fell in love with it and decided I just had to teach it at Creative University. It’s easy, fun, and different! I love the folksy look of the white doodles.  They remind me of tole painting and folk art. Here’s how you do it. Black Magic – A Folksy, Doodly Focal Image Technique I’ve been…
