Here's what I did with our furniture... see last post to see the before ;) I have so much fun with this stuff... making our home a haven and as a service to our family is my focus. You may have noticed I've slowed way down with social media. It's not that I don't enjoy it, it's just that it so easily becomes "too much" for me. So, I reminded myself I'm in charge and I made a few changes πŸ’πŸΌπŸ’•

I found a side table that made Zack and I both go 😍, so naturally I'm rearranging furniture LIKE IT'S MY JOB. (Because it kinda is, lolol.) Sources tagged, everything else is thrifted!

I spent the girls naptime in the basement sewing on Gussy orders in my studio. It was a sweet time for me, to be able to create and not feel exhausted... The last two summers I have been newly pregnant, hello exhaustion… Not this summer! So I am embracing what it is, and it is good πŸ’•πŸ’• And now, coffee! β˜•οΈβ˜•οΈ

I mean... right??? πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’¦snicker, snicker, snort #funnestmomever

Sewing a few Gussy Sews Essential Oil clutches during naptime. These loops will hold 5mL or 15mL bottles/rollers, and because it's twill they won't stretch out over time. πŸ’¦πŸ™ŒπŸ»βœ¨if you need to control your oily stash, click the link in my profile to visit my Gussy shop. Everything is handmade by me during naptime in metro Detroit πŸ’•πŸ‘›talk about a handmade dream come true! Tag a friend who needs one! xx

Zack and I watched Fixer Upper last night, immediately afterward I said, "we need to start a business together. Let's do something big." Last time we watched FU and I said something similar, we moved to Michigan from California and then began to heavily attack our debt. Soooo πŸ˜­βœ”οΈβ€οΈπŸ™ˆhe is probably a little scared of me. Haha. But in all honesty, I feel something... a movement happening ✨✨

the cutest (and smallest) bike rider ever award goes to Goldie! 😍

Are you an oily gal? πŸ’§πŸ™‹πŸΌπŸ™‹πŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ½πŸ™‹πŸΎI've got the cutest Essential Oil clutch in my Gussy Sews shop, which holds seven oil bottles or rollers (choose either 5mL or 15mL size). And there's a second zipper for your wallet essentials -- the design is gorgeous! Click the link in my profile to shop handmade βœ¨πŸ‘›βœ”οΈ

I think green is my new favorite color πŸ’šπŸπŸŒΏπŸŒ±πŸ“—and all of this beauty is right outside our back door! PS. Totally unrelated, there's a new blog post up :) (link in profile)

I thrive on the concept of "20-minute increments". As a mama of a 4yo, 2.5yo and 1yo, my days at home are never the same. It's up to me to be the example through play, work, rest, and self-care. In these simple 20-minute increments I can choose to: read a stack of books, read my Bible, wash a sink of dishes, fold 4 loads of laundry (snort), take a quick nap, play tag with my kids, catch up with my mom on the phone, meal plan, pray, crochet a project, water my plants, write in my journey -- the list goes on!!! I often forget all I can accomplish in just 20 minutes. But I never forget to TRY to accomplish. Wishing the same for you today ✨😘😘 Happy Monday, lady! May "20-minute increments" work well for you, all day long.
