The topic of perfection comes up quite a bit these days, especially when it comes to social media. Perhaps if we create our own idea of perfection, it'll become a word we embrace instead of a word so quickly judged. Perfection is in the eye of the beholder. Some might view this blended family we've got going on as a hot mess- it's not always exactly the way I would have planned it to be (#itscomplicated) but it's ours and to me- that's perfect. My kids make mistakes & sometimes (gasp!!) they make bad choices but in spite of that, they're amazing people & in my eyes, they're part of a blessed life I CHOOSE to see as "perfectly and wonderfully made". (Psalm 139:14) Because if God can see my mess as perfect in the midst of all of the imperfections- I think I can work at seeing it that way too. (Thank you @pnpflowers for your amazing post that inspired me to write this!) #graceoverhate

I used to dread going to this space to work because I would literally have to clear a spot at the workbench, pushing all the junk we didn't know what else to do with out of the way. At some point I decided to view every square inch of our little home as precious real estate- including this space. This means every six months or so the hubs & I sort & purge. It doesn't mean we don't have scary spots, like behind that chalkboard closet door you'll find all the stuff we feel like we have to keep (family mementos...keepsakes) but have no clue how to organize- meaning something is going to fall on your head if you're brave enough to crack the door open. But hanging on to things you don't love (minus the keepsakes...I have some of those I don't love..ha!) means someone else doesn't have the chance to love them. Celebrate your space- whether it's your dream home or your in-between home. Adding a little vase of flowers or lighting a candle makes a space feel intentional, it'll make your work space feel less like work too. Light the darn candle πŸ˜†- make yourself some tea- cut a few flowers!! Life is too short not to. #preachintomyself #wahm #celebrateYOU

wittersgarden : This is something we have embraced in the past year. Loving our space now, tiny and humble but we love every inch!
franofree : Thank you
jenmigonis : I feel the same way about our small space!
sweet_sycamore : I loop the same cycle in our little home...and each time I learn more about letting it go. We don't have an attic, which stopped my mother in her tracks, but I was excited to know I wouldn't have a dump zone. Now I make the decision while it's there in my hands. At the moment, though, my creative space is pushing me out, full to the brim again...time for my own little candle and a happy freshening! πŸ’•
lisamccracken1 : Great advice. : Need. To. Do. This. My work space sound like how urs was but with fabric, notions, trim, tags, thread, bobbins ... could go on haha ... Thank you for the inspiration to really get in there and make it my place :0)

Welcome to my little studio space! Tap for sources & see more photos, including my old-school kiln, at The pegboard & workbench (built by my handy hubby) are super inexpensive DIY's keeping just about everything within arm's reach. I tend to feel more focused when my stuff is simplified & organized, don't you? It's nothing fancy but it's a spot I love. #studio (Link in profile)

One of the reasons I love our home is all the sweat and tears we put into it. It's been a process. It's still a process. Almost time to start over again. #kitchen Ha! But nearly seven years ago we saw something in it (obviously we were the only ones...that green carpet was hard to see past!) and we got to work. Did every square inch ourselves. Busted our butts on this place! So here's a little before and after (again..for my new friends here!) Be sure to check back. New chandelier for the dining room coming next week!! #handyhunkband #beforeandafter #bahbye80's #home

debwlewis : Where's your table from? Love it!
aedriel : It's from @worldmarket ! We love it. I don't stress about the kids banging it up and we didn't pay much for it. I think it was $239 on sale. I don't see it on their site anymore (I was going to find the name of it for you) but maybe they'll bring it back. It's a great table! @debwlewis
debwlewis : Thanks! Keeping my eye out for it. Wow what a price!!
rtp75 : It is gorgeous! Amazing work!

Another peek into our home today showing you one of my favorite spots- that wall of photos with our five kids surrounded by our family. We didn't use some exact method to hang the frames and we add to it when we feel like it. Decorate without rules, right? #newmexico #familywall (tap for sources)

Sometimes in moments of discontent I dream about coming home to a bigger house, where we have more room for the kids...and an actual laundry room would be nice too. But then I walk into our home & I'm reminded that this is right where we're supposed to be. And of all the homes I've lived in, this one is my favorite. Because it's not always about where you live, but who you share a home with. #welcomehome #entry #lovegrowshere #family #newmexico

I have found the older I get, the LESS I understand day-to-day life and the MORE I realize I cannot go at it alone. As I rely less and less on what I think I know, I rely more and more on the trust that only He really knows. The weaker I become, the stronger God can be in my life. Prayer is an exhale, a peek into an understanding that no verbal explanation can offer & a chance at sight... because there are no coincidences in life. If we're not relying on something Bigger and looking for the Better- we'll likely never see it. #trust #lookforHIM #everywhere (Thank you @kindredvintage for the backdrop- perfect for this quote!)

I believe the most beautiful women radiate a quiet & grace-filled confidence that isn't arrogant & doesn't try too hard. Beauty isn't about the perfect nose, makeup or a magic number on the scale- it's that fire we get when we know what we are capable of. If you're struggling, you deserve to see yourself in a new light. Tackle each step with that fire! The light will guide your path. "You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you." (Song of Solomon 4:7) #tbtquote
