Christian Family Activity: Hiding the Bible

  When we moved into our new house at the beginning of last year, there was this weird wall that needed to stay there for support… but it was WAY TOO BIG. We didn’t want that wall to block the entrance and the areas of the house that we spent the most time in.  So, […]

#AllwoodPartyOf6 Family Pictures in the Snow!

If you know me, you know I. LOVE. SNOW. When I used to work at a 9-5, I hated the snow because I had to drive in it! My job depended on it!! But now that I have the privilege and freedom to work from home, and be with my family more often, I’m soooo […]

The Ultimate Conflict: The Kids are off for Summer Break and YOU Work from Home

Ok maybe “ultimate conflict” isn’t the best choice of words. Maybe I should have called this “10 ways to get work done while your little people are home from school”.   I know you love those amazing kiddos who call you mom or dad and I know you try to make the most out of every summer that they […]

A love note to Mommas of small kiddos who are working from home….

The way I start every new year……

I am obsessed with the week between Christmas and New Years.  I don’t work that week.  Days run into one another.  I become a complete sloth consuming nothing but movies and junk food and friends and family.  It’s hard to say if my hair even gets washed?  It’s my favorite week ever. And I always spend time […]

What do having a baby, buying a dog and starting a business all have in common???

I remember distinctly when we had our first baby. In my mind I had envisioned this newborn baby as all Kodak moments. Rocking sweetly. Cuddling.  I had no idea that our first baby would be colicky, that he would not nurse well, that we would have to supplement with bottles, that he would be lactose intolerant, that he […]

How my Son Changed my Business Forever

When my son Noah was born, HE made me a mother.   Life has never ever been the same.  I had no idea the sheer joy that motherhood would bring. At the time we had Noah, I had only had my Magic Brush painting business for a little over a year. During that time, I had landed several […]
