Thanks for visiting my blog. I began journaling about my daily life when I was eleven. Over the years, this has grown to become a way for me to share my thoughts rather than my daily life. I’m pretty open with sharing all the beautiful chaos of life with six children. I have to remind myself to extend grace to myself each and every day! It is my hope that my writings will help others to learn to extend grace to themselves too. After all, if it weren’t for the Grace of God, life would just be messy. I’m so glad that life can instead be a Beautiful Mess and is covered by His Beautiful Grace.

The Back Building

  Most of you have read about what happened with my building when we moved.  Well, to make up for his mistake, Gabe took the building that he was going to make into a man-cave and allowed me to make it my scrapbook building.  We are now using the smaller building that I had before as storage.  We moved into the church parsonage, which is directly in front of the old chapel building that we met in while the church was being built.  The old chapel now serves as Gabe's office, my scrapbook room and a sort of den/play area for the kids.  It works out much better for me because there is now plenty for the kids to do while I scrapbook and we now have a restroom and sink as well.  I have just one complaint, because I am sharing my space, I only have 3 walls for shelves and you all know how I like to hang shelves on the walls.  I am adapting to the new environment but it hasn't been easy.  I have tried many times to get the building completely cleaned and organized so that I could take pictures but I have finally given up.  This space is far from ideal at this point in time but I am working on it.  By the time I get it like I like it, it'll be time to move again anyways.  Well, hopefully not but you preacher's wives know what I mean.  For now, the space works but I do have some adjustments that I would like to make.  I hope that you all enjoy this peak into my creative space.  If I can help you with ideas for your own space, just let me know.  I love to organize and find creative ways to store scrapbook supplies.  I will be working on my own space over the next few weeks (SPRING BREAK IS NEXT WEEK!!!!!!) so I will post updated pictures once I am finished.  Have fun organizing!
