Letting Go

There are so many times in our lives that Letting Go is absolutely necessary.  Since the end of last July when my world was forever turned upside down, I have tried to do it all!! If you are new around here… you can read here and here.  I share it all around here.  I absolutely believe in 1oo% transparency and honesty.

Literally tried and failed at many things along the path. But I never give up….


Last night I realized as many things continue to change in our lives, letting go of the things that don’t bring you joy and true happiness are likely holding me back.  So, I prayed.  I asked God to walk in front of me, to the right and left of me, and gently push me from behind to help me let go of some things.  Whether it’s stuff I have taken on and said “yes” to that I can’t possibly give my all to- which in turn means I am not doing me or that thing any service.  Or moving along looking to simplify things that are just too complicated for us all at this particular moment in time.


So, I wrote out a few emails this morning and with blessings that were absolutely from HIM- I realized that I am moving in the right direction.

I am first and foremost a wife & mother.  I have told you all that a million times and I love to share the joys of that with you.  And thankful that you love to read along and support.


I love to paint for my clients and love sharing all the tidbits of information that I can.  But when you retail a product you feel obligated- true or not- to share that particular brand.  I love American Paint Company.  I stand behind it’s awesome paint and products.  I just don’t solely use their products.  Which means I am also not doing myself that awesome service of promoting and marketing it like I should to sell.  But you see, I think I lost the love of selling a paint a while back.  And in all complete transparency and honesty, should have never taken on another line no matter how awesome it is.  I don’t have the time to put into it or the desire!! So, I am letting it go.



It doesn’t stop me from painting or doing what I love.  It opens up my love of using all sorts of products and sharing all of that with you.  It helps me rekindle the love affair I have each time I pick up an new piece full of stories from my clients and dip that brush in and breathe new life in and let the stories live on… I really am that passionate about what I do… but somewhere along the way of selling paint- I lost that between seeing the backside of bickering lines.. I don’t want to know all of that stuff anymore.  I just want to create beautiful and let go.


So, what does that mean for you right at this moment… Nothing much more than there is a big sale here on paints.  I am adjusting the prices as we speak online.




Please know that the American Paint Company is an amazing paint.  I do truly love it!! I have absolutely nothing to say negative about the products or business.. A wonderful and amazingly talented group.

thank you so much for stopping by… I can’t wait for you to see the reveal of these amazing pieces I am working on!!
