I’ve made the leap!

I have been looking around at different ways to increase my income lately, and have recently made the jump to my next step in this journey. I am now an Independent Consultant with Jamberry Nails!

Haven’t heard of Jamberry Nails?


If you’re interested in giving Jamberry Nail Wraps a try, why not host a party?  It doesn’t have to be done at your house.  Online parties are the way to go!  Click here to schedule your very own party.


Or you can request a sample, and your sample will be sent directly to your house.

There are so many great things about Jamberry Nails that I love!  My favorite thing?  No dry time, and no chipping!  The wraps last 2 weeks on fingers, and up to 6 weeks on your tows.  Who wouldn’t love that?!


If you want updates (like the new designs that will be coming out September 1st!) – be sure to like & follow my Facebook page here!

A new venture!

I have gone off on a new adventure!  Okay, so not really new, but something more has come out of it.

I have recently opened a new Etsy shop!  Full of different drawings and paintings that I have done.

I started off with Recut Designs, which is full of fiber and textile fun, but didn’t have anywhere to put my art and drawings.  No worries, Recut Designs is still open, I just can’t add too many new things at the moment while the wrist is in slight disarray.

I present to you:  Art in My Soul!


This shop is full of drawings that I have done over the past year, along with a few paintings and pieces of mixed media art.  I may also add in some pieces that were done in previous years as they are dug out of my closet.  I absolutely love drawing and painting, and our walls are getting a bit full here at the house.  I then had someone ask why I hadn’t added them to an Etsy shop.  Light bulb!  I knew you could have more than one shop, I guess it had just never dawned on me.  So without further hesitation, I jumped on and opened shop.




I hope you will hop on over and take a gander, I really am loving this newest little venture.  🙂


Just in time to trim your tree

I have recently added a few items just in time for the holidays. And more will be added yet through this weekend. These items are some that I have been working on for a while, and they are so dang cute! I could have a tree full of them, I can’t get enough of them! They are here just in time to add a bit of handmade charm to your tree and gifts. Without further ado, my newest additions to Recut Designs!








Hop on over to my shop for these and others. Enjoy!

Friday Life Update – Instagram Style!

Saturday and Sunday were busy, busy with the Art Crawl for Lovie and I. The Gear Works and Recut Designs made an epic show, once again! Stay tuned for more additions coming to Etsy stores near you!



We also spent a bit of time at the Farmers Market and got the news that we make too much to live where we’ve dreamt of living.


I received my package of Shakeology for my upcoming fitness challenge my sister-in-law has roped me in for.


I’ve also been working at getting back in the gym (or at least some form of cardio) at least 4 times a week. Even on those days I really don’t want to – but they always end up being the best days.


And today I treated myself to a Caramel Cooler at Caribou today after a week of work and commitment at the gym. I haven’t had one all week!! That’s a record for me, really!


A pretty good week all around I must say.

How was your week?

Fall Art Crawl Weekend

Well, Hello Monday!

Mr. Man and I recently participated in the Fall Art Crawl downtown {so I apologize, this may be a photo heavy post}.  It was a bit slower than we would have liked, as with fall, you never can tell what Mother Nature will bring.  Unfortunately, she brought gloomy gray, cool showers, and chilly weather this time around.  None the less, we engulfed ourselves in the land of artists!

:: Mr. Man’s gorgeous pieces ::
:: My end of the world ::

He sold some amazing pieces, one of which I wouldn’t have minded coming home with me.  See that black and white vase in the first picture in the back row?

Yep, that one!  (sorry for the fuzzy phone photo)

Of course, first to go!

And a covered container with a beautiful cobalt blue interior.

And a tri-footed bowl, beautiful!

He still had some absolutely beautiful pieces left, which are now being added to his Etsy shop, The Gear Works, so be sure to head over and take a peak!  A few of my pieces with the gear, industrial and Steampunk theme have been allowed in as well.  :o)

Such an amazing and talented man I have the privilege of being with!

What did you do this weekend??
