About

My Little Family Inspires Such Big Ideas

My ideas and creative ventures have been rooted in the Love and Strength of my precious family. My deepest yearning since 12 years of age was to be a little homemaker and build my home through serving my family wholeheartedly.

Typically, finances would arm wrestle us and I was determined to stay home and yet contribute in any way I could help honor my hubby. Then while checking a Myspace post (like dinosaur ages ago, lol) I stumbled upon a link that led to the wonderful world of Etsy.

Within a few months I was on the hunt for vintage. Surprisingly, I actually loathed vintage in high school. I thought of mothy-clothing and was disgusted by the thought of wearing them. Funny enough, when my Mr. Husband and I reunited his style took me for quite a shock.

He was sporting with such confidence this soft lemon-yellow Mr. Rogers looking cardigan. I was so opposed since it was obviously not up-to-date with all the latest trends. He was unmoved and began sporting his incredible vintage pieces all the time. I must admit that shortly I was converted.

I absolutely Love promoting the classy, modesty that so many vintage pieces provide. Current clothing trends along with our culture has forgotten the loveliness in being a lady and so many vintage pieces promote that classy, hidden beauty.

I never considered myself creative and really still dont, lol. I am so determined that my little sweeties will not become digital zombies that I try to make sure we're occupied somehow other than through technology (it has its place but normally gets way to much attention) So we paint, draw, hunt for bugs & trees, discover how many amazing things God made, dance like crazy and sing, they even help me photograph in both shops and help paint in MaeLo. I copy my 5 year old daughters color palates all the time. Her taste to me is by far the finest.

As for my 2, precious children, Alaina (5) & Levi (3), they have been such a instrument of God's unveiling truths and mercies. He shows me His heart as He teaches me to deal with them through His Love and Patience & and Constant Communication. They have peeled the strongest layers from the depths of my stony heart and given me so much of my Love back that I can truly feel again.

Life is difficult and through many pains the heart in defense for protection hardens, but I never knew when the hardness would come it would kill the love in me as well; to where I wouldn't hurt but I could not overflow as well. So through many trials God has given me the grace to not fear pain but trust Him through it so He can mold His enriching character and lessons of His Will into my being. So in all things He can have all the Glory since all things are from Him, for Him, through Him and to Him. God alone be praised <3
