5 Things: Baby Shower Honoring Little Miss Hailey Grace

Hi Friends and Happy Friday! We have been so BUSY with orders, and I am just now getting a chance to post about the FUN and TOTALLY GIRLY baby shower from a few weeks back.

5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny

5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny

Hi Friends and Happy Father’s Day to all of our daddies and daddies-to-be! We have had a wonderful day showering Patrick with love, and now that we are home and he is taking a little evening Father’s Day nap, I decided to sneak on here and write a little post for all of you about the ADVENTUROUS day that we have had. So here it goes…

5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny:

1. So, here is how our morning began…. Well, I should really give y’all a little backstory first. I was FORCED BEYOND MY WILL to take a HUGE portion of cake home from the baby shower yesterday. And not just ANY section of cake, it was more like the entire side which had an ENORMOUS amount of LUSCIOUS FROSTING. Which I usually do not complain about free cake, but this cake was DANGEROUS y’all!

It was a fabulous, homemade, incredibly moist, creamy, rich, buttery, melt in your mouth, almond flavored cake…. And it tasted exactly like Wedding Cake. And here’s the problem, Wedding Cake is my one weakness! It is my favorite and I lose all of my senses and become completely clutched in its grasp while in its presence. Well, on my way home yesterday evening, I tried my very best to get rid of it all. I dropped some off to my grandparents, and then brought the rest to the boys. I left it on the counter hoping they would devour every last morsel.

But when I woke up this morning and headed into the kitchen, there it was… just STARING at me! One glorious piece of cake left. It was as if Jesus had saved it just for me! I tried to resist at first, but as I walked past to retrieve the coffee creamer from the fridge, I got one heavenly sniff and immediately fell into its evil clutches. I had no other choice but to gobble it up at once. Plus, you know that I am an adult, and it IS technically okay for me to eat cake for breakfast… And that is EXACTLY what I did.

Picture Frame Crosses for Amanda

Picture Frame Crosses for Amanda

We recently had the honor of working with one of our sweet clients, Amanda. She originally found us last year, and initially ordered a cross frame for her fiance as a Christmas gift. Since then, their friends and family members LOVED it so much, they all wanted a cross frame for themselves. So, Amanda contacted us again and asked us to make 4 more frames! One fully stained with a gorgeous Provincial stain, and 3 stained with distressing in Antique White.Continue reading

Do What You Love

Do What You Love

Ain’t that the TRUTH! 😉

We love getting to have our babies help up in the shop… supervised, of course! They get to learn so many awesome things from watching us build, repair, refinish, and up-cycle. And they are so PROUD of themselves when they get to see the finished product that they were able to help with.

At the end of the day, it is all about family and doing what God specifically CREATED you to do! As they say… “If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life.”

(P.S. For our lawyers and doctors out there.. we love ya too!”)

Happy MLK Day!

Happy MLK Day!

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! We love these beautiful quotes from such a WISE and INSPIRATIONAL man. He was such an ENCOURAGEMENT to so many.

If you do anything in life, remember this… ALWAYS TAKE THAT FIRST STEP. It is one of the most difficult things that you will ever do, but no matter how scary it may be, it will be even scarier to stand still and to do nothing. There is a whole world waiting for you out there! A world that needs your GIFTS and TALENTS! A world that would not be the same without you! So, take a deep breath, take that first step, and trust that God is waiting for you at the top of that staircase.

And once you take that first step, keep moving forward! Don’t stop, no matter what! You may not be perfect at first, you may look silly, people may think you are crazy, and you may not be the best at it; but as time progresses, you will get to your goal! That finish line is calling your name, sweet friends! Don’t let the naysayers and negative thoughts get you down! Where you could be 1 year, 1 month, 1 week, or 1 day from now is ALWAYS better than where you are at now. Keep working at it and keep moving forward!

Happy Friday, Friends! Are y’all as EXCITED about CHRISTMAS BREAK as we are!?!? Our kiddos worked EXTRA HARD this week, and completed all of their schoolwork and tests yesterday. So we had NO SCHOOL TODAY! YAY!!! And Patrick was THRILLED because the day that he has been counting down for all year was finally HERE!

No, I am not talking about Christmas. I am talking about the new Star Wars movie…

To CELEBRATE their achievement on finishing up the semester strong, our sweet little elves, Holly and Jolly, brought them an unexpected SURPRISE this morning! They had movie ticket to go see the NEW Star Wars movie (The Force Awakens), NEW Star Wars shirts laid out, and a stack of all of their favorite candy. The kids could hardly contain their EXCITEMENT when they saw all of their GOODIES that the elves brought for them!Continue reading
