I've been a fan of Joanna Gaines since Day One, her blog, her show, her testimony. I believe God puts people in your life for a reason. And yes, even TV life....I have faithfully watched her show and related so much.
When I closed my shop in 2012 I cried my eyes out, but deep down I knew it wasn't the end. I had suffered the death of my step father and a miscarriage in a matter of months. I needed time to heal.
In 2014 I went through a separation, and 2015 the final divorce. My faith in God became stronger and stronger and I knew this was all happening for a reason.
In 2016, I had to move out of a single family home and downsize to a condo with my kiddos. I had to get rid of and sell a lot of my inventory. That seriously broke my heart. I still prayed faithfully to God to show me the way.
Through my daughter's Girl Scouts leader .....I found a new home church and my faith has never been stronger. I have made some bold moves in the past month because I truly believe GOD IS PREPARING ME FOR GREATER THINGS.
If you haven't ever seen this video.....take a minute and just listen to the words she speaks.
APRIL IS AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH......as the parent of a lil girl on the Autism Spectrum. I do my best every year to raise awareness and prepare for our walk.
This year we are hoping to have a big team of walkers and supporters. My daughter's team name is Samayah's Puzzle Patrol
I'll be sharing more this month...but for now here are sneak peeks and my inspiration.
These awesome nail wraps from Jamberry will be part of our walk uniform.
Samayah Rae is 9 yrs old, she was diagnosed at age 2. She is extremely smart and is now in regular education classes because her IQ score was so high. Samayah loves art and reading, she will go far in this world....I have faith God has a plan for my angel.

For those of you who follow me on Instagram (Lucky7design) , you know I recently downsized from a single family home and into a loft condominium. I decided to revamp all of my decor and not repeat too much here in the new place.
Kinda Rustic Farmhouse meets Restoration Hardware & Anthropologie.... Honestly I get bored easily and I like my home to be eclectic and not just one style.
While out browsing in Home Goods....I spotted an awesome large piece of art. When I looked at the price tag, I knew it was out of my budget.
Now it's beautiful and worth it but I just had to stick to my budget because I had a long wish list for the new place. So I decided that I could definately DIY this....
Buy an inexpensive large canvas piece of art
Cover it up
Try to replicate the pattern of the inspiration piece
I immediately sent the above picture to my sister and told her of my plan. She is the true artist in the family.....I just dabble. She said go for it.
Not even 2 days later on Instagram there is a Sponsored Post for Home Goods.....guess what? Yep, my wish list piece of art being featured.
Now it's on.....even more motivation.
HERE IS HOW I DID IT:
Pretty but not for my decor
Step 1....I spray painted with copper paint
I then mixed some metallic paint with the spackle
I wanted a simple design but needed more copper than the original inspiration art.
Here is my DIY art on the wall in my new place. I wanted it specifically to hang over my new sofa
Anyone who knows me, also knows that Im totally addicted to Joanna and Chip Gaines show on HGTV..... Fixer Upper.
Unless you've been living under a rock...you definitely know the show Im talking about.
Well...Im such a lucky girl. I was selected to be on the Magnolia Story Street Team, our official name is the Shiplappers. Im so over the moon about this, because not only do I love the show but Im also a big fan of JoJo and Chip and what they stand for in life. I will get to bring you news about the book, release dates, events and everything Magnolia.
The Magnolia Story is going to be a best selling book for sure...I just can't wait to read it. Maybe I'll take a trip down to Waco and discover all this inspiration for myself.
Please go check out the preview of their story HERE and of course when the book is released you must get yourself a copy.
