DIY Book Cover Tutorial

School is approaching. Schedules are picked up. Books have been distributed. That never ending task list seems to be growing longer rather than dwindling. But, by some miracle we'll get it all done before the kids are pushed out the door! This year, my oldest starts...

A Crowd Pleasing Show Booth

Junk fairs, antique shows and pop-up markets are becoming ever more popular. And, no longer is the EZ Up Tent King of a show display. For hours only, small handmade businesses have an opportunity to create a visceral reaction through the art of their displays. How you...

Ringing in the New Year with a New Color

Caitlin and I were talking earlier this week and I was telling her that I feel like we should have some sort of big, epic 2018 announcement to share! But, that's not the case. I'm relishing the fact that after seven years of business, we are at a point where things...

Interview with Voyage LA

Recently, I was asked to submit a questionnaire for Voyage LA publication. It's been awhile since I've been interviewed so grabbed on to this opportunity enthusiastically. Interviews have a way of delving into the details of the business that I rarely write about or...

Since 1990…

In 1990, I was eleven years old. I had froo-froo bangs, wore double stacked socks, cuffed my jeans (which, ironically I do today) and had a sweet pair of LA Gears complete with a dangling key chain. My biggest worry in 1990 was that I had to wear glasses (which were...

Painting Upholstery

Painting upholstery is a highly debatable process. Some people swear by it, and others yell from the roof tops "IT'S NOT POSSIBLE." No matter your opinion on the subject, painting upholstery is counter-intuitive to say the least. I've done a handful of painted...

Maeberry Lane Design

If you've admired our most recent window display by artist Sandy Brock, then you've likely noticed the contribution of vibrant yet cozy-soft florals by Maeberry Lane Design that sing out among the deep green doors and shutters.   The handiwork of Glendora artist Kelly...

Finding Contentment in a World of Want

This week I had lunch with my friend Serena who happens to be a fellow (successful) business owner. It was such a nice break from reality as we had a chance to pray for our families and our business as well as lament about the challenges of life and the schemes of...

A Funtastic Farm Table

My Dad makes these amazing farm tables. Amazing, in that I refuse to work with power tools and wouldn't have the patience to do all of the measuring and mathematics involved in building one of these guys! But, Dad is a bit of a perfectionist. If he had it his way,...

Succulent Inspired

I have a had a paint brush in my hand nearly every single day since the kids went back to school! It's very much my favorite place to be...on the floor in grubby clothes with paint splattered on my face and in my hair. My projects for the past month have not been my...

Wanted: Volunteer Color Mixologist

We have a brand new intern opportunity for the fall and winter months! We're looking for someone who has a couple of hours to kill every week, who won't mind getting their hands colorful and play with different paint mixtures. Seriously...I think this might be the...

Progress on the Family Room

Happy first day of school! The lackadaisical summer days sapped any productivity and motivation from me. But, we are back from all of our summer vacations, Jerry is back at work and I am resuming a more regular schedule and the anticipation of a routine has given me a...

Room Re-Designs-The Process I Use

We've been in our house for about twelve years now. I've re-decorated every space inside and out in that house multiple times except for one. Our back family room. Some days, you can find me sitting on the couch and just staring at the walls, willing a change but not...

Revived and Refreshed

The days on the calendar on ticking by ever so quickly until school starts! Just over two weeks. Where does the time go? I've spent the better part of July gallivanting around the western part of the US and enjoying some much needed R & R and an abundance of...

What is Shibori?

In short, Shibori is an ancient Japanese technique of dying cloth fabrics while using a variety of binding methods to achieve a variety of patterns and effects. Indigo or purple root is the typical dying agent used which offers a rich, deep blue. Believe it or not, at...

Painting with Annie Sloan

Last month, I went on a whirlwind of a trip to Oregon to take a painting class with Annie Sloan. By whirlwind, I had to align the sun, moon and stars to pull together childcare, store coverage and the dollars to get myself to Oregon all within an eight to ten day time...
