Art Gallery

Gallery I want to share with you some of the pieces I have created. Sometimes I think art does a better job of explaining who I am better than I do. All of these have a reflection of me to some extent. I hope you enjoy them and that it sparks creativity in you!            

How I found my side hustle

How I found my side hustle

Why finding your side hustle can make a huge difference in your life. My side hustle was found in my love of art and being able to express myself creatively. Now from what i’ve learned you can’t always go looking for a side hustle, sometimes it needs to find you. I know reading that might sound kind of strange or goofy but hear me out. Most jobs I’ve had it’s because I needed the job, needed the money, needed to…

Finding a Job Through the Eyes of a Millennial

Finding a Job Through the Eyes of a Millennial

When I was growing up I never had the “this is what I want to be when I grow up” moment. I saw it with my friends and peers but never had it for myself. For me personally I couldn’t fathom picking only one Job. The thought alone felt daunting. How can I pick one thing to do for the next thirty plus years before I retire? I’ve always labeled myself as a dabbler. I’m always wanting to try something…

Taxes, Cars and a little bit of Insanity

Taxes, Cars and a little bit of Insanity

Wouldn’t it be nice if the moment you stepped into adulthood someone gave you a how-to book? The last few weeks that thought has crossed my mind A LOT. Between taxes, issues with our car, owning a home that insists on giving us problems, a how-to book would be perfect right about now. The further along in life I go I keep coming back to “why was I never taught this in school?” I know I can’t be the only…

“OH CRAP” Moments While Owning A Home

“OH CRAP” Moments While Owning A Home

So Jon and I have only been in our house for a little over two months and there have been more “oh crap” moments than I ever would have expected. Some of the top moments in our house so far: Oh crap, why is our basement is trying to become a kiddie pool (Main sewer pipe broke) Oh crap, the dryer is ripping holes in my clothes, and how the heck is that even possible! (Felt attached to the drier…

Instant gratification and its effect on the world

Instant gratification and its effect on the world

The world is constantly at our fingertips. It seems like no matter where I go there are screens everywhere, cell phones, tvs, billboards and laptops. I find myself constantly being amazed by the speed at which technology continues to progress. In my lifetime we went from the internet just being born and computers becoming more mainstream, to now in 2018, the self driving car is actually a dream made possible.  Overall I think this is a fantastic thing, but, there…

The house with the sewer pipe from hell

The house with the sewer pipe from hell

We’ve only been in our house for a few days when all hell breaks loose. I go to do a load of laundry in the basement, and everything seems fine and dandy. I go back into the basement a few hours later and there is water everywhere! The rugs were drenched, it smelled, and the carpet in the other room was a goner. Now growing up my parents house didn’t had a basement , so having mine flood, in winter,…

So Close Yet So Far

So Close Yet So Far

At this point Jon and I are only a few weeks away from moving into our house. At this point the waiting is killing me! From the moment we got married we couldn’t wait to have our own place. All of our wedding gifts have been sitting in boxes for basically a whole year now. Expecting moms tend to nest to get ready for their baby, well, I feel the same way about our house. I have an itch I…

Tips for buying a house

Tips for buying a house

So to build off of my last blog, Jon (my husband) and I finally found the house we wanted, but getting to that point was no easy feat. As complete newbies we didn’t know what criteria to go off of or how picky we should or shouldn’t be. Throughout the process we learned what worked for us and what didn’t. After the first home we looked at we realized very quickly that, 1. Pictures can be very deceiving and 2….

Finding our first home

Finding our first home

The house hunting shows on HGTV make buying a home look somewhat easy, pick one of these 3 nice homes, (probably close to being way outside your budget) or just buy a fixer upper! Just rip this wall down, it’s all minor things, all easy and quick to fix. All those shows I stayed up into the wee hours of the night binge watching, somehow convincing myself that when I have a home of my own, I’ll make sure I…
