Working Mom

Taken from my personal blog

There is this working mom. She was once this mama who blogged a lot.(now blogging every single day at  She had stories of her life to share, but most important it was how she embraced God that she wanted to share.  She is still here, and she is the one typing.

My days and time on the computer have taken me to working. I mentioned here, several weeks back that I am starting a business, have started a business and now refining all the fun stuff. It has taken a lot of work and time.  My master bedroom and office are a full time work room. I try to get it all cleaned up before David comes home but tonight, with kids in bed I will work until the projects before me are completed.
Working from home is a big bonus and I feel so very blessed.  I am reminded of this verse in
Ecclesiastes 7:4….”the end of a matter is better than it’s beginning, and patience is better than pride.”


I am beginning to see the end of some very big projects, and things are looking and feeling a whole lot better.  As the ending of these big projects grows close the beginning of something new will come and again the beginning a little harder.  It’s hard when you have your own business and patience is truly what I am learning more of and growing more into.
A few days ago, with all the rain pouring outside my office window I decided to sort buttons.  I wanted to see color when I looked out the very big picture window.  So as the rains keeps coming, I get to bask in a rainbow every day. I call this Button LOVE.
Also, Dawn and I have just about completed three room designs. Here are some of those stories….just a very little sneak peak.




“Vivian Blue”
These three pictures show a very small section of duvet covers. Imagine what the paintings, wall racks, shelves and other fun accents will look like and coordinate with each of these.  I am always reluctant to write or say anything on my private and personal blog concerning business.  I have already had a few complaints on “self-promoting”.  The reality is that this designing kids rooms have been my passions for well over 20 years now and God continues to bring people into my life to bring Him too.  So yes, self promoting is what builds business, sharing my love and heart is what builds friendships.
God is blessing this process from the very start in ways that do not even make sense.  Even yesterday, Dawn and I working so hard to figure out some of the harder technical stuff and we “get it” and then laugh and we have not yet cried, but it’s a joy doing what I love doing, from home and sharing little tidbits along the way.
If you know of a darling, handmade clothing line that has a vintage feel to it, can you comment, link me or email me.  We are getting ready to shoot our pictures and I would love to promote some local Portland, OR mama who sews lovelies for children.
In addition Dawn and I would like to feature you, your creative accents in your home or your child’s room that is fun.
