I don’t know where to start. Last time I posted here was right before my house was sold. Well, my family moved to Idaho close to my in-laws. Then life fell apart. My now ex husband left me for another girl he worked with months while I was pregnant with our 4th child. His abuse had gotten worse the last few months of 2012, I should have seen this coming. But I wanted nothing more than to have my family together. He just walked away from us. So I sold everything, everything I had put my time and hard work into. I left Idaho with my 3 children and dove into uncertainty. The money I was able to make from my things as well as the last few paychecks from my job paid for my tiny apartment in Southern California. Yep, I came back home to my family to try and refocus. Now its just my children and I in a tiny apartment trying to make life feel like home again, minus him. I lost my unborn child at 15 weeks. I went in find out the gender only to find out I had been caring my child dead the last few weeks. My heart was broken. Nothing could have braced me for the things that had happened the summer of 2013. But nothing could have made me as strong as those events had.
Recently, I have started refinishing furniture again. Not to furnish a big house, but to make home seem like home, not a thrift store or garage sale explosion (Its what it really is anyway) I also have super limited funds being one income for a family of 4. Ok, 5! I got my kids a kitten because they missed their dog so much. his name is Bender. (Yes, futurama)
Anyhow, point of this post is to say I am not dead, and will be posting up a few more projects here and there as my budget allows. I have finally started to heal and begin my life again. My passions have returned! Maybe I can show some crafty ideas for small space design in an apartment setting, and SUPER thrifty decorating ideas.
Thanks everyone who still creeps up on my blog, for the comments and shares on Pinterest. Its has helped me to think I am somewhat good at this.
