My Birthday Eve Blog

Hello friends! It has been an incredibly awesome year and I cannot wait to start my 43rd year in this world! So many wonderful opportunities have crossed my path in 2015 and the first 6 months of 2016 as well and I wanted to take a minute to share!

Remember my last few posts I talked about Plexus and how much I really love the products? I am still loving the products and sharing them with everyone I can. Joining Plexus was a life changer for me. I became surrounded by the most supportive group of people that lifted me up. They helped me discover the me inside that had been buried away for so long. I found myself wanting to invest in myself and grow spiritually, financially, emotionally, etc. I am focused on my health, exploring ways to become more crunchy and green, researching foods that I am putting in my childrens’ bodies, expressing myself through art on different mediums, focusing on finances by learning about Dave Ramsey and his babysteps to help us gain financial freedom, etc. So just from what I have mentioned you can tell that I have changed so much over the last 2 years, especially in the last year. I am also the happiest that I have ever been. I have found my self esteem and confidence growing immensely! I LOVE waking up each day to a new adventure!

I wanted to show you a few of the pieces of furniture that I have refinished to show you that this is my way to relax and unwind. It is my woo saa. My release of pent up frustrations from everyday stresses such as work and finances. I have found that  everyone needs a way to let go. Find your way and let go!!!

Also I wanted to introduce you all to an awesome new product that was just announced at convention in Las Vegas this week! It sounds AMAZING and today is the first day you can get online to buy it!  It is called EDGE❤️

7/30/2015 A lady who misses her blog:)

Hello everyone! Our computer at home has died a horrible death and we are trying to budget a new one into the household budget but with my sons’ birthdays and back to school. Mom is taking a backseat which is ok as long as the kids are taken care of first:) A few things that I have been working on since I wrote my last post:
1. Bookshelf that I bought for less than $5, sanded, primed, painted and polyurethaned and added a chalk board top per my client’s request.
2. Issue that I am struggling with as far as pricing furniture after I finish it. I really try to seek out bargain deals on furniture and I have been blessed in finding many people’s trash that I have turned to treasure. BUT I feel that I am pricing way to low. But the crowd that I am targeting and advertising in my town are very much want to buy the best of things for little money. For example, while I paid less than $5 for the bookshelf, I put all of the materials and my time spent with labor and I sold it for $20.00 How do you guys feel about that price? What are your secrets and advice when it comes to pricing? Please let me know! I’m thirsty for answers:)
3. Octagon end table that is huge! If there was another matching end table to this set, it would take up a very large part of someone’s room. I honestly would probably use it as a coffee table personally. But I am working on it now and I am in love with it.  Now that brings me to another issue I am having.  Or should I say my husband is having.  When I buy these ugly ducklings, I feel nothing for them.  But after they are done, I don’t want to sell them.  I want to keep them forever.  lol  Does anyone else experience this feeling of attachment?

4.  $15 garage sale dresser.  I found a dresser at a sale down the street from my house.  Got it home and started to clean it.  Then I opened the drawers and WHOA!!!!  Horrible musty smell.  I totally thought I was going to have to set it outside  my house with a FREE sign on it.  But then I read an awesome hint on a Facebook page, about trying Borax.  I had serious doubts about this but then I recleaned it about 4 times.  And it worked! I am a complete fan of the product BORAX!  I used super hot water and added the BORAX and it worked wonderfully.  It is now a must have on the grocery list!  This dresser we purchased specifically for my son so my husband is alright with me keeping this one.  Thank goodness.  I could never have parted with it:) lol

I can’t wait to be able to upload some pictures for you to see.  I am still very new to giving new life to old pieces but I am in love with the process, the paint, the furniture, everything.  I wish I could give up the money making job so that I could do this full time but the bills determine that is not going to happen anytime soon!

I hope you enjoyed the post even without the pictures and I’m looking forward to any comments, suggestions or stories that you might have about what I wrote.  If you have ever felt the same way I have, please let me know that I am not the only one in the world!

God bless!

Me and Matilda

A love that changed it all.

My favorite rocking chair

Hello friends! I wanted to introduce you to someone who changed my life. My design style at home is slowly transitioning and integrating pieces of furniture and items that I never thought I would ever be attracted to until this guy came along. Just out of curiosity, do any of you find yourselves changing your design style as you get older? Or do you tend to find a style and stay true to it? I just am a furniture addict and when I find a piece that makes my palms sweaty and heart beat faster, it has got to come home with me! Back to my rocker….how much do you think I paid for it? $10 dollars!!!!! Can you believe that? Tell me your design style or have you ever fallen in love with a piece of furniture? Do you ever find yourself sneaking and buying furniture and scheduling pick up times while your significant other is at work? Lol yes I am that person. For example yesterday while driving I saw a white book shelf for $5 on the side of a country road. Now I purposely drove home the back way to avoid any garage sales or thrift stores and there it was waiting for me. Husband was home so I had to keep it real. I told him that I don’t find furniture, it finds me. Lol He shakes his head and laughs. The white book shelf is tucked away nicely with the rest of my treasures and all is good! Ok guys, now I’ve shared my insane addiction tendencies, tell me I’m not alone in my love for furniture!

Thanks for reading, friends! Come back to see me regularly!
