Today’s topic for the #photochallenge is #throwback and I am going to go WAAAAAAY back. When I first really realized that I wanted to create things and share them with as many people as I could, I had started with handprinted wine bottles. Here is one of my all time favorite sets that sits in my home all the time (except when my Halloween bottles come …those are almost way better). I unfortunately stopped this portion of my creating because painting wine bottles in #coloradowinter just WAS NOT working. My husband was doing most of the painting because I would get super frustrated with it. I have always been a DIYer and constantly making things, but I feel I have found my true “niche” and I am loving everything that I make!

So today's #photochallenge post is about whether or not I'm a night owl or an early morning person. This meme perfectly describes me now. Had you asked me this question 6-ish years ago, I would have told you night owl....HANDS DOWN. 😎 When I worked as an #emergencydispatcher I worked nights. For six years straight my life consisted of working 5:00 pm to 5:00 am three to four days a week. Getting switched to a #daywalker schedule was usually impossible. But since then, I've left that line of work and had a kid so I'm back to "normal" (if there is such a thing 🙄). My #husband worked the same schedule as me, but now works the typical 8-5 job Monday through Friday🤓. There's some nights we look at each other at 9:00 and go, "I can't stay up anymore. I gotta go to bed!" 😴Other nights we're up wayyyy past our "bed time" haha! But if I had to pick one I'm an #earlyriser and I think this is because I like to be awake before my daughter because that means I can get some work done and/or drink coffee IN SILENCE. ☕️ I also get up at the butt crack of dawn to get a walk in four days a week...so I guess I'm more of a #morningperson ...this is what #momlife has done to me! 🤣

Today for the maker #photochallenge it's about #lessonlearned and this one is a hard one because I feel like this whole journey is filled with lessons learned. A big , big one for me is stepping out of my comfort zone. This cup is one of a hundred and I made it for the #dispatchcenter I use to work for before beginning my adventure of working from home. I was so nervous that everyone would hate them or criticize every small detail of it. But every feedback I've gotten has been positive and definitely given me the confidence to keep going and venture into new things. I'm trying to learn that I need to not be so hard on myself in all aspects of my life...❤️

When your #husband wants a jar too, but doesn't want glitter. He thought of the design all himself and I just made it happen! 😊

Today for the #photochallenge is to choose your #favorite item ….well I just spent a good 20 minutes scrolling through my photos and I can’t pick JUST ONE. So here are a few that I have made recently that I am in love with. I just cannot get over how awesome the red chalk paint looked over the dark wood stain. The tumbler is my most recent creation and not only is it perfect for my #coldcoffee , but for some reason I am in love with the cow skull, flower and feather combo. Finally, the no soliciting sign. Everyone that sees it gets a good chuckle out of it. Also, it’s doing it’s job and keep away those solicitors at my house, haha.

I hope everyone survives their Monday! I know mine is going to be a struggle…but that’s what coffee is for!

Today’s topic for the #photochallenge is #customerpictures . I only have a few since I’ve only been doing this less than a year. I’m sure a lot of #makers are their worst critic because I know I am. Seeing pictures of my creations being loved by the customers I made them for!
