Jenny Louise Marie Hi friend.  I am so glad you’re here!  Monday could not be a better day to talk about this topic.  So tell me, do you ever feel a bit (or maybe a lot) of stress?  Do you ever feel overwhelmed by all you have to do?  Does this happen even if you don’t have a good reason to be?  Welcome to my world.

Jenny Louise Marie Hello friends!  I am happy you stopped by today.  I am super excited to share with you a new site I found recently that has the most adorable home decor and artwork.   Out shopping recently in a store near my home I found some artwork and was admiring it when I found out it that it was a Sugarboo and Co. design. To be honest,  I fell in love with this simple book quote as a large framed piece of art.  Have you ever had that happen?   When you see something and are truly touched by it?  Well, that’s exactly whatRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hello friend!  I have got a super easy repurposing project for you today.  When it comes to DIY projects, I am all about quick, easy, and inexpensive.  How ’bout you?  So, I am sure you have noticed that chalkboards are super in right now.  I see them everywhere.  If it’s not an actual chalkboard, it’s a chalkboard print to add to a frame.   I saw a super this cute picture of another blogger’s office and thought to myself….hey I need one of those.  And just like that a project was born.

stenciled birds on laundry wall

Jenny Louise Marie We’ve recently moved into a new home. It is lovely.  I mean what’s not to like about a new house?   Even better,  I was able to select all of the finishes and paint color etc… Still, a new home can be rather lacking in personality. On the other hand, it’s kind of hard to change a lot for fear of messing up your brand new home.  Right? I decided that I would start with my laundry room – it’s small, not a lot of people visit the room besides me.  So, if I messed it up, it wouldn’t be completely tragic.Read More →

Jenny Louise Marie   On the day I became a mother for the first time, my whole world changed.  Everything shifted.  Suddenly, I was head over heels in love with this tiny baby and would do anything for  him – at any time day or night.

I was a career minded woman and gave it all up to stay home full-time with this tiny being.   I didn’t want to miss one moment.  Luckily, that is just what I did.Read More →

Jenny Louise Marie So, have you ever wondered if it’s better to buy “the real deal” vs. DIYing one for yourself? Sometimes I wonder if DIY is always the way to go.   Let’s discuss this.   Have I mentioned that I love to decorate? I love for my home to look the way…well, the way I want it to look.  Like many of you, I scour Pinterest for ideas and pictures of rooms I love.  (Do you follow my boards yet?)  It seems there are always projects to take on, things I want to incorporate into my decor, but maybe I don’t always have theRead More →
