I'm a self-proclaimed snob about four things

1️⃣ home decor: my mom is a killer interior designer
2️⃣ pizza: I grew up partially in NY and spent a month in Italy. I can't help it
3️⃣ food storage: again, I blame my mom. She wrote this chill book 'I dare you to eat it'
4️⃣ photography: photography has been a huge part of my life for the last decade. When picking a photographer for Q.NOOR I for sure wanted the best and @heathernan is 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 I'm so grateful for her talent and wisdom. Her skills play a HUGE role and I just want you all to know it! I mean... just go look at her feed and you'll understand.

Ready to float away for a while..... WHO'S WITH ME?!

Had a great night with all six of us celebrating with the artists and authors for @deseretbook! @shadowmtnpublishing #sixsistersstuff #lds

"Wherefore, be of good ​​​cheer​, and do not ​​​fear​, for I the Lord am with you, and will stand by you; and ye shall bear record of me, even Jesus Christ, that I am the Son of the living God, that I ​​​was​, that I am, and that I am to come." -D&C 68:6 #lds #mormon #christian #sharegoodness #armyofhelaman #helaman #goodcheer #donotfear #hope #courage #dc686

We are sooooo grateful to all the amazing friends who helped us with this whole packing, cleaning, moving thing!!! 34 steps of stairs meant a good workout 😅
Boxes are empty now and all the stuff is almost in their right places. Almost 😂

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ASK of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. James 1:5 thanks to @sacrocubism for this extraordinary piece of art.


Asi nos divertimos. #PreCarnaval #LDS 😎

"Hay algo inspirador y sublime en la pequeña flor nomeolvides. Espero que sea un símbolo de las pequeñas cosas que dan gozo y dulzura a su vida. Por favor nunca olviden que deben ser pacientes y compasivas con ustedes mismas, que algunos sacrificios son mejores que otros, que no hace falta esperar un billete dorado para ser felices. Por favor nunca olviden que el “porqué” del evangelio de Jesucristo las inspirará y las elevará. Y nunca olviden que su Padre Celestial las conoce, las ama y las cuida. (...) Es mi ruego y mi bendición que nunca olviden que son hijas verdaderamente valiosas en el reino de Dios." 💖 -Dieter F. Uchtdorf #flornomeolvides #amomiscollares #sud #lds

@jk._julz_ I'm so close! As the miles defend between us my mind runs more than I could have ever imagined it could. All I can think of is you. This is so crazy and I have trouble believing it right now even tho I'm sitting on the bus right now decreasing the miles. My heart is running wild right now

"See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me!" I definitely think it's time to head back to the big island! 💙🌴🌊🌈

Isn't this print a perfect way to commemorate that special Deacon's new Priesthood responsibilities?

FYI - I've been making a few changes on my website this morning.  I decided to get rid of all shipping costs within the United States.  This is good on everything - custom orders as well as prints.  Shipping is a drag, don't you think? (Link to my website in my bio)

Yep this pretty much describes today so far!
#funfactsfriday share your 5 fun facts below!!! 1. I'm a wanna be morning person. I woke up at 5, went back to sleep cuz my will power after a late night is well lacking, then got these guys going for the day.
2. I feed my kids cereal for breakfast a lot. Tatum hasn't drunk much of anything the lag couple days so I'm soaking anything and everything in liquid and trying to get her to eat it. More ideas welcome!
3. I struggle with depression, self doubt, insecurity, feeling guilty about any and all mistakes I've ever made in my life--I struggle to let go of my past and I have to battle my inner dementors ALL the time.
4. I am a little obsessed with cleaning my house. I have a hard time focusing on ANYTHING when I'm stepping on crumbs and sticking to the floor where I walk. 😭were cleaning today. Like as of NOW.
5. I have a REALLY hard time keeping my temper with my kids. Like I get frustrated by super silly stuff looking back. They're little. Gotta remember that!
6. I wear glasses and don't get dressed for the day until like 10 am. If at all sometimes! Today is Friday though so I might make an exception.
7. I got married when I was 19 years old and my hubs is 9.5 years older.
8. I was in a musical in high school for Joseph and the Technicolor DreamCoat.
9. I swam the 500 freestyle in high school and the 200 free. I hate running. With a passion.
10. I love refinishing furniture! Currently working on a pair of night stands for my master bed redo. It's gradually happening. Which is good cuz usually I work till I drop on stuff like that.
Ok so I did 10 instead of 5 fun facts! Share yours below!

I finished the teeny details today - the stuff I see but no one else does - and this painting is finished! I titled it "Welcome to Heaven. Let Me Show You Around." Yeah, it's a long title, but it seems to fit. It's a painting to bring comfort to those parents who lost a child through death.
I plan on doing a series of paintings like this, but customizing them with different ages, boys and girls, race, and hair color. This is the first in the series, and I can do commissions for specific paintings. If you have any questions, please message me or email me a mike@michaelfrankpeterson-artist.com. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

I have a custom frame coming that I ordered from Missouri. I will post a photo of it when the frame comes and I mount it. Stay tuned... www.michaelfrankpeterson-artist.com #ldsart #mormonart #christianart #mormon #lds #mormon #christian #children #heaven #spiritworld #death #deceasedchild #deceasedchildren
