I love looking for furniture that has had their better days and now need a "facelift"....I started this "hobby" quite by accident and have found that I.LOVE.IT. People are actually buying this furniture ~ WOW. If you have something that you have made YOUNIQUE ~ pls send me a picture so I can post it ~ I really would love to hear from YOU!
I promised you that I would write about the women in my life that make it possible for me to create the beautiful pieces of furniture at the same time to maintain a clean home, do laundry, etc. Although it is our tendency as women, to be superwomen, we all need help and support. I am so blessed to have a wonderful group of sisters and mom that help me when I'm being pulled in all directions. The very first one on my list if my beautiful mother ~ she comes over when I'm going crazy because I haven't had a chance to clean the bathrooms, fold and put away clean laundry, dust all my furniture, ~ you get the picture....lol. She is such a pro at this that I don't worry about anything when she's here ~ she knows where everything goes ~ she knows where I keep my cleaning supplies, etc. LOVE MY MOM
I come from a very big family ~ a total of 7 of us. We are 5 girls (including myself) and 2 boys.....my sisters and I are very, very close. Our entire family is very close knit. I have two sisters in particular that are always willing to help when I need them. My sister Nel, who loves to paint ~ was here this weekend and I had her sand all my pieces. Although she would prefer to paint, I have decided to take that responsibility myself as it is my business and I've learned a lesson regarding this ~ so, enough said on that ~ I DO ALL THE PAINTING.......LOL
Then I have another sister, Terri ~ she has a full time job but doesn't work very far from my home. If I'm running low on paint, I'll call her and ask her to pick up a gallon for me. This keeps me from having to stop working. She is such a joy to be around ~ very funny and happy all the time. She just came by last night and we had a grand time ~ yes, we went to dinner and spent some quality time together.
Then, here is me......these are my typical work days :) I feel so blessed to have my family. My sisters are the best any girl could ask for......
