Consistency | Your Powerful Tool To Change Anything!

In 2013 I saw that a friend of mine (that had modeled for one of our collections) was sharing the new book from her husband (or maybe fiance) at the time. I quickly ordered the book, The Power of Consistency, by Weldon Long, which was already a New York Times bestseller. I devoured the book and as I did I was highlighting and adding my own notes throughout the whole book.  Wally was writing and sharing so many of the …

Our First Live Workshop In Our New Studio {come and check out the photos}

When people ask about my new studio or about our first live workshop it doesn’t even feel real. Our life is so different than it was five months ago and I think we are all still wrapping our heads around it. This move, this land, this house and this studio has changed our life. That may sound like an overstatement but I can promise you that it isn’t. I hope someday I can do a better job explaining what is …

The Studio That Love Built {before and after photos}

We moved into our new home and land in February of this year.   The day before we moved in our town was covered in a blizzard and we scrambled to find someone to plow our new long driveway. Only a few weeks after our move we announced our first workshop in the studio that had not been built. Many thought we were crazy and had no idea why we would put that kind of time and financial pressure on ourselves. …

Your Love Is Deep {Your Love is Wide}

Life has been particularly busier than normal these past months and I do not do busy very well. Busy makes me feel like I am treading water and just keeping my head above water. Each morning I try to focus on what really needs my attention whether it be home, business, children, friends, marriage or myself. These days lately it just feels like everything is needing my attention.  Hence the treading water. We will figure it out especially with all …

Old Glory Antique Show {and time with the Fancy Farmgirl}

(all of the photos were taken by my phone in tons of sunlight..sorry) I live in Colorado as most of you know. We are known for our beautiful mountains, incredible weather, occasional wildfires, Tebowing and hiking. Not known for amazing shows. When my friends in the PNW are all heading out to the Farm Chicks show I am just a tad jealous. When my midwest friends all pile into a car to shop at the Country Living Fair I mope …

My Daughter’s Story

I feel like I have been through a lot with my health. Even in the midst of being really sick it was only my immediate family that knew how hard my days were. Because of all I have gone through and in the end I am making my way…I sometimes downplay things with my children. Years ago I would have panicked and rushed them to the doctor and today there is a calm and peace that things will be fine. …
