Autumn is here / Shop Revamp / Coupon Code!!!

Happy Terrific Tuesday beautiful mamas!! 

So, I haven't posted in a while, I know. The past two months have been a little tough for my family, including losing one of our furbabies to cancer two weeks ago. But now I've got my tutu-making groove back and cannot wait to experience all that Autumn has to offer!

Autumn is my favorite season of the year, mommas! I love the hot apple cider, caramel apples, fall festivals, Halloween, Thick sweaters, comfy pajamas, Hallmark movies, Thanksgiving and Black Friday sales and the countless opportunities to give with Christmas donations. But what I love most is just the warm feeling of family, friendship, love and gratitude that come with the Fall. This seems to be the time of year that people are more thoughtful and thankful. I just love it!

Midweek Positivity: Joel Osteen - Living at Rest 2016

Happy Wednesday Ladies!

I just wanted to share a great pick-me-up inspiration from one of my fave pastors, Joel Osteen.

As a mom, aspiring actress, homeschooler, entrepreneur, writer, etc. my life can often seem extremely overwhelming. I have struggled with depression in the past and it can threaten to creep back in when frustration arise. In this message, Pastor Joel is talking about living at Rest and being in Peace, even when life is hectic and challenging. Hope it encourages you as it has me and helps to get you past this "hump day" in victory! :-)

Be Blessed,

Music Monday: Artist Beckah Shae & Fighting With Faith

Loving this song that my bestie Meldie of LiveInColor Blog just introduced me to! So upbeat and inspirational, so it's perfect for a woman who may have gone a couple of rounds with a challenging day.

I'd had a busy day myself and when I struggled to see the fruits of my labor manifest, I started to get overwhelmed and a bit downtrodden. This song by Beckah Shae came right on time, when I was standing in need of a spiritual pick me up. God truly is on our side and as long as we have him, we WILL be alright! 

Put God first, believe in your goals, stay in prayer, and fight the good fight of Faith because God is still going before you, working everything out. :-)

Momspiration Monday: Featuring LiveInColorBlog!

Momspiration Monday

#HappyMonday Peeps! Okay, I may have been watching a little too much of my fave YouTube family, Gabe and Babe TV, lately. I love them!

So this will be a short, tiny, minuscule post because I am working on my new Etsy store: Carriage House Heiress, and simultaneously homeschooling my kiddo AND getting ready to film for my YouTube Vlog (the acting one, not the RRNB one). I know, I know, even I'M confused! LOL!

Truth! Pic Credit: Quotesgram.com
So I just wanted to highlight my bestie & sister, Emelda (I call her Meldie), over at Live In Color Blog for Mompspiration Monday!
My beautiful bestie: Emelda De Coteau of Live In Color Blog
Her blog post for today is dead-on what most of us moms experience on a daily basis.
"Why Leaving Our Cell Phones Home Some Days Is A Good Thing"
I giggled as I read it, re-thinking days of my own that were similar to what she was describing. As a busy mom, blogger, entrepreneur, writer and wife, she totally has a great perspective on balancing all of the crazy in our lives. All of her posts are thought-provoking and super-relatable for women and mommies alike.  Head on over to her blog to be inspired!
Her latest post speaks volumes to my spirit right now as I have been feeling digitally inundated with "stuff" lately. The need to hop on social media and post or check what others are posting rules our days! The Struggle is definitely REAL trying to find a good balance. Some times we just need to go "Analog"... like 1995: Tube TVs, pagers, high top sneakers, Nickelodeon and Little Debbie snack cakes, all in that order. :-)
Nevermind, just have a Blessed day!

Hello Lovely You!
Small Handmade Shops that ROCK!
Happy Saturday!  I'm hoping that everyone is enjoying their Sabado with their family and friends. Or perhaps you are getting a mini-break, hiding in the corner of the total library area while your kiddo plays on the library IPad. Okay, maybe that's just me. 😄
I'm carving out a minute or two to blog for #ShopSmallSaturday about some awesomenazing lady makers!

The pic above shows six handmade shops that I am swooning over. I will tell you a bit about them (from left to right):

1) Instagram: WolfandWillow.Art
That gorgeous chunky blanket was made by Candace  of Wolf And Willow Art and I love it! I have two scarves from her shop and I have been sporting them all winter. Soft and plush, her items are perfection!

2) Instagram: MyKindaSpoonin
I am always excited to see another creation from Lisa over at My Kinda Spoonin! She creates the most amazing jewelry from silverware and other metals. This sweet butterfly is just one of my many faves from her collection.

3) Instagram: WizardGlassFusing
Noel never ceases to delight with her ultra colorful, artful pieces of glass jewelry! I love the layers, dimensions and depth to her peices. The large turquoise blue one pictured above is absolutely stunning!

4) Instagram: Lilliemariejewelry
When I first saw one of Brigette's hair jewelry creations, I think I drooled a little.  Okay maybe a LOT. 😊 Her hair jewelry makes any girl feel like a true princess. She also creates gorgeous earrings that remind me of the home-in-my-heart, India. Such beauty!

5) Instagram: Cardsbykristi
Kristi's insta feed always makes me smile! She is literally a paper magician.  No..really, she IS. Her card creations are unique and beautiful Her color combinations and sparkle are why I need one (or two..or ten) of these cards in my life. The one pictured above is just darling!

6) Instagram: TheSoapySituation_Sara
Can you believe that the photo in the bottom left are not actual edible cupcakes??? I'm drooling over them now! Sara creates these decadent soapy treats and they are the epitome of gorgeousness! Her insta feed has pic after pic of deliciously tempting soaps that could fool a goodies momma like me into taking a bite. 😋

That is my #SmallBizSaturday list of faves!
Going to head over a pry my kiddo from the library IPad and go get a bite.

Oh!! Before I forget, don't leave the blog without entering my #Tutu set #GIVEAWAY going on NOW!
