Our Basement Renovation - Learning How to Drywall, Then Hiring It Out

In my last post, we had hung all the drywall and had just started mudding and taping all the joints. Being that my mother grew up helping her father who was a Drywaller by trade, she knows a thing or two. She spent a Saturday showing us how to apply the mud and tape to the joints and corners.

How to Bible Journal Without a Journaling Bible

I am partnering with DaySpring to share a look at the new Illustrated Faith Rise Up kit. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small financial compensation if you make a purchase using this link.

I post my Bible journaling pages weekly on social media and frequently get asked what kind of Bible I have, if the pictures are already in it, and what it is all about. I have even hosted a couple of Bible Journaling workshops at my church and several of the ladies were concerned about not having a special Jounaling Bible. I am here to show you today that you can still be creative and illustrate God's Word without purchasing another Bible!

Easy Strawberry Smoothie

When Spring rolls around and fresh fruits start to come into season, I love to make smoothies for a snack or breakfast. My teenage son is picky about what he eats and does not like many fruits, but he will eat strawberries and loves them in a smoothie. This allows me to sneak in some extra goodness, like yogurt.
There is no excuse to not get your fruit in with this easy strawberry smoothie!

Incorporating Pops of Color Into your Decor

While standing in the check out line at the grocery store a couple of weeks ago, the cover of a magazine caught my eye and I had to pick it up! It was a shot of a bright kitchen with turquoise cabinets (SWOON!) and open shelving with colorful dishes. Obviously, the magazine went in my cart and came home with me. It inspired me to share some of the ways I incorporate color into my decor to hopefully inspire you to do the same.

What I am Wearing - Olive Dress for Graduation

Graduation season is upon us, and many of us have at least one to attend. I, myself will be attending my nephew's college graduation this month. With unpredictable weather and outdoor venues, it is hard to know what to wear. I found a comfy, cotton dress from Aventura that can be dressed up or down for any graduation or other year-end school event.

Ways to Stay In Love With Your Bible

A special thanks to DaySpring for allowing me to review this book and share my honest thoughts.  This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small financial compensation if you make a purchase using this link.

It is no secret that I love Bible Journaling because it helps me spend more time in the Word. If you read my recent post on Diving Deeper in Your Faith, I confess that I have times that I struggle with finding time to open my Bible. The truth is, I think we all do, which is why I was excited to receive a copy of 10 Ways to Fall in Love With Your Bible and Stay In Love by Shanna Noel. If you are not familiar with that name, Shanna is the creator of Illustrated Faith, which is an online Bible Journaling resource and community.

If you want to stop feeling guilty about not reading your Bible, then come along with me and say goodbye to all your excuses.

Pampering Your Face With Masks From Imperial Glamour

Our face is the first thing anyone sees, so we want to keep it looking youthful and glowing. It takes a lot of work to achieve this and one of the ways to pamper your face is with masks. I am a low maintenance kind of girl, so I have only recently starting using face masks and special treatments, mostly to try to combat signs of aging.

Do you have trouble keeping your mind focused on the pastor's message? I confess, this is something I struggle with every Sunday morning. I am guilty of allowing my mind to wander to mundane things, like what I am fixing for lunch, ideas for my next blog post, and even what I am going to wear tomorrow. I am embarrassed to share this with you, but I know I can't be the only one. We are busy people and it is hard to get our mind to slow down when it's used to multitasking all the time.

Keep your mind from wandering by Doodling Sermon Notes in a Travelers Notebook

That is where taking sermon notes comes in! I have only been doing this for the last few weeks, but it has helped me focus on the message and give me something to refer back to later.

I have been Bible Journaling for about two years now and have collected an assortment of supplies. I use everything from colored pencils, paints, gelatos, and stamps to stickers and other ephemera.

DIY Pom Pom Tree Branch Decor

What I am Wearing - How to Style Camo

Camo print is not just for hunters anymore. It has been popping up all over in pants, scarves, shoes, tees, and even accessories. I am not going to lie, it has taken me a while to get on board with this trend because I grew up in the country and I still tend to think of it as hunter gear. But, seeing how cute it can be on other fashionistas has inspired me to try it!

DIY Garden Flag Using a Place Mat

Do you like to decorate with garden flags for every season? It can get expensive buying different flags for each season and holiday, but I have an affordable solution.

Iron On Mermaid Shirt - A Cricut Make It Now Project

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine. This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

I confess that I have an obsession with mermaids. I even had the "mermaid" hair last summer! When I ran across the Mermaid Pillow in the "Make It Now" projects in the Cricut design space, I had to check it out. Since a mermaid pillow does not really fit in with my home decor and I live in a house of boys, I decided to put the design on a shirt instead.

Bible Journaling - Diving Deeper in Your Faith

I am partnering with DaySpring to share how you can use devotional kits to dive deeper in your faith. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

I have fallen in love with Bible Journaling and try to spend a few days a week in my Bible this way. But, I have to admit, I fall into a rut at times. I feel like my journaling is not as pretty as other peoples I see on social media or I do not feel inspired by a particular verse. This is when I need to take a step back and remind myself WHY I journal. I journal to spend time in God's Word and get a deeper understanding of specific verses.

Sometimes you just need the proper tools to inspire you to spend time in the Word, like the Craving Connection Devotional Kit!

Sometimes you just need the proper tools to inspire you. I may download free devotionals from the Illustrated Faith website to kickstart my creative juices or use a Bible Journaling kit like Illustrated Faith's Craving Connection Devotional kit from Dayspring.

Pamper Yourself With Imperial Glamour Beauty Box

The great thing about subscription boxes is that it allows you to try new products before you buy them. When I was approached by Imperial Glamour to try their boxes, I was happy to, in exchange for my honest thoughts. The boxes are filled with high quality, natural, organic, and vegan products made in the US or Canada. I like the fact that she supports local, small businesses that are primarily owned by women.


The thing that I like about the IG Beauty box is that each month is a different theme. January contained only hair products and February contained lip products. There are two box options: the Deluxe for $25 and the Mini for $16.

Why I Quit My Job (It's Not what You Might Think!)

First of all, I am not retiring and I am not making enough money blogging to call it my full-time job. (Both of those were questions I got when I gave my notice) If you have been following along with my personal story, you will know that I recently quit my job of 16 years to take a part time job at my church. I have shared some of the backstory in previous posts, but I want to give you an update today. My hope is that I can inspire one of you to follow God's call on your life, even when it is scary.

Why I quit my job and the story of God's calling on my life.

If you are new here, just a quick refresher: I left my comfortable job at the end of December to take an Office Manager position at my church. I felt stuck and unfulfilled in my job and had been praying for the last couple of years that God would show me where he wanted me. I knew I wanted to do something that allowed me to share my faith, and when my Pastor called several months ago with a proposal, I initially dismissed it, (because of the pay) but then I stopped to think that maybe this was my answered prayer. After much praying and crying and discussion and doubt and more praying, I decided I had to go for it!

Our Basement Renovation - Drywall, Drywall, and More Drywall

In my last update, I shared some of the random projects we were finishing up so we could embark on our dry wall journey. We have mostly been consumed with hanging drywall over the last few months. We had a ton of area to cover..three entire rooms, a couple of hallways, a mudroom, and the ceilings. I am not going to lie...hanging drywall sucks, but the upside is that it is starting to look finished!

See what a difference drywall and lighting made in our basement!

DIY Painted Journal Cover

I have a weakness for pretty notebooks and usually have several on hand, for taking notes or jotting down project ideas. Recently, I had a chance to work with Oriental Trading, so I picked out a pack of small journals with a white canvas cover. I thought they would be perfect for a Bible Journaling workshop I was hosting, for those who did not have a Bible.

Customize your journal with a DIY Painted cover!

I had to save one for myself so I could try my hand at painting my own cover. The design I picked was from a planner cover I saw on Instagram and I personalized it with one of my favorite quotes.

DIY Rolling Storage Using Wooden Crates

Thanks to Rust-Oleum for providing the paint as part of the Creator's Studio Blogger Challenge! This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.


I have had two wooden crates c/o Crates and Palllet sitting around for months, while I was trying to decide how to use them. I have been pinning a ton of storage ideas for inspiration, but could not settle on one idea. When I was selected by Rust-Oleum to participate in their Creator's Studio Blogger Challenge, I decided I was going to finally make a storage project using the crates.

Need more storage space, but do not have room? This DIY Rolling Storage using wooden crates is the perfect solution!


The only requirement for the challenge is that I had to use at least one of the products in the box. The box contained several goodies: Glitter spray paint, chalboard spray paint, mirror paint, chalk gray spray paint, green spray paint, and a couple of cans of stain. I am pre-disposed to go with the spray paint, because that is truly my jam, but I decided to try the stain. Don't worry, I am sure you will see the spray paints used for future projects...I already have a couple in mind!
